The offensive line has struggled this season, giving up a combined 8 sacks in their 2 losses to the Atlanta Falcons and the San Diego Chargers.

The team also had a total of 5 forced fumbles by their opponent’s defenses.

Turner was drafted in the third round (67th overall) by the Miami Dolphins in 2014 out of North Dakota State.

He was recently released by the Baltimore Ravens, who had claimed him off waivers just days before.

To clear a spot on the roster, the Broncos waived Darrion Weems.
