ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — With Aqib Talib out and Kayvon Webster questionable for Denver’s Sunday night showdown at Oakland, the Broncos promoted cornerback Taurean Nixon from their practice squad Saturday.
To make room, they released veteran tight end John Phillips.
Webster was injured last week against San Diego. Without Nixon, a second-year pro out of Tulane, the Broncos would have been down to three healthy cornerbacks — Chris Harris Jr., Bradley Roby and Lorenzo Doss — if Webster’s pulled hamstring kept him out, too.
