The Broncos Monday came to the conclusion they no longer needed Justin Fargas on the roster, as the team released the former Raider running back. Fargas got a carry Sunday night in the win over Pittsburgh, but didn’t overall see a lot of action.
The Broncos made two more roster moves Monday by releasing running back Justin Fargas and waiving injured cornerback Tony Carter. Fargas, the former Oakland Raider, was signed during the second week of training camp. He got only one carry in Sunday’s game against Pittsburgh.
Carter spent most of 2009 on the Broncos practice squad but was promoted to the active roster late in the season and played in two games, with one start. He missed all of last week with a hamstring injury and did not play in Sunday’s game.
The team feels that running backs Knowshon Moreno, Correll Buckhalter and LenDale White will all be ready to go once the season starts, and they no longer felt they needed to carry Fargas on the roster.
