DENVER (CBS4) – Kapri Bibbs could see his first NFL regular season game action on Sunday when the Broncos face the Browns.
The former CSU Rams running back was signed to the active roster off the practice squad on Saturday morning, and the team released tight end Richard Gordon.
The move to activate Bibbs comes as the Broncos running game is struggling, with C.J. Anderson and Ronnie Hillman splitting most of the carries and not racking up much yardage. Juwan Thompson is the Broncos third stringer behind them, but he is questionable with a hamstring injury.
During practice this week Bibbs took snaps with the first team. He also worked with Peyton Manning after practices.
Bibbs is in his second year with the Broncos. He was activated from the practice squad during the season last year as well and was on the roster for four regular season games. However, he never played in any of those.
