Broncos promote practice squader Willis

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - The receiving-thin Denver Broncos have promoted wide receiver Matt Willis from their practice squad, an indication that Eddie Royal is unlikely to play Sunday.

Coach Josh McDaniels already is benching Pro Bowl receiver Brandon Marshall and tight end Tony Scheffler for disciplinary reasons for the game against Kansas City with a playoff berth at
stake.

If a neck injury keeps Royal out for the second straight game, the Broncos would be left with a receiving corps of Jabar Gaffney, Brandon Stokley, Brandon Lloyd and Willis. The four have combined for 58 catches and five TDs this year, about half of what Marshall has.

To make room for Willis, the Broncos waived tackle Herb Taylor.
