ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - The Denver Broncos promoted wide receiver D'Andre Goodwin from their practice squad Tuesday and placed fullback Spencer Larsen on injured reserve with a sprained left knee.
Larsen was injured in the Broncos' season finale Jan. 1, and Denver lost its top receiver, Eric Decker, to a similar injury in their wild card playoff win over Pittsburgh on Sunday.
Goodwin, an undrafted rookie from Washington, spent the season on Denver's practice squad. The Broncos also added first-year receiver Tim Toone to their practice squad.
Broncos not practicing Tuesday as the team prepared for its second-round playoff game at New England this weekend included defensive end Elvis Dumervil and tight end Daniel Fells with unspecified injuries, Decker and safeties Brian Dawkins (neck), and David Bruton (Achilles).
