The Broncos waived Brett Rypien last week to activate Drew Lock from injured reserve.

Rypien rejoined the team Monday.

The Broncos announced they have re-signed Rypien to their practice squad.

He spent three games on the team’s game-day roster after Joe Flacco went on injured reserve but did not see a snap as the backup quarterback to Brandon Allen.

The Broncos promoted Rypien from the practice squad Nov. 1.

He left Boise State as the Mountain West’s all-time passing leader by throwing for 13,581 yards as a four-year starter.

Rypien went undrafted this spring.
