The Broncos are signing Latavius Murray off the Saints’ practice squad, Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports.

On Sunday, Denver lost running back Javonte Williams for the season with a torn ACL and LCL in his right knee. His injury left the Broncos with Melvin Gordon and Mike Boone on the active roster, with Devine Ozigbo on the practice squad.

Murray made his 2022 debut on Sunday in London, rushing for 57 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries for the Saints against the Vikings.

In nine seasons, Murray has played for the Raiders, Vikings, Saints and Ravens. He has appeared in 169 games with 69 starts and has 1,517 touches for 6,926 yards and 52 touchdowns.

  1. If he played Sunday morning how exactly is he on the practice squad. I’m obviously missing something.

  2. How could the saints let that happen with Kamara’s health and pending probable suspension? He clearly outperformed Ingram as well. Saints have made totally stupid choices since Peyton bailed out. Winston as qb, giving away Gardner-Johnson, continuing to coddle Michael Thomas, and now this. The city needs to pitch a fit.

  3. How?

    Teams may promote up to two players per week to the active roster. Such promotions must be made the day before the team’s game, and allow the player to automatically revert to the practice squad without having to clear waivers.


    … each week, teams may designate up to four practice squad players who then cannot be signed by other teams to their active rosters.

    Yeah, sounds like a boo-boo of sorts.

  4. What are my Saints thinking letting him walk AGAIN??? I just don’t get it, the dude can ball! Wow

  5. Melvin Gordon may fumble a lot but he is really slow. Singing Murray is a great move for Denver, I hated to lose him when he was the alternate back with the Vikings. Hard runner and he can break them too.
