ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - The Denver Broncos have released running back Toney Baker and two other players.
Offensive lineman Kirk Barton and wide receiver Patrick Carter were also waived by the team Monday.
The Broncos are dinged up at running back with Knowshon Moreno (hamstring), Correll Buckhalter (back) and LenDale White (ankle) all sitting out of practice. The team recently brought in former Oakland Raiders bruiser Justin Fargas to bolster the backfield.
Baker joined the team April 30 as a college free agent out of North Carolina State. He didn't play in the preseason game against Detroit on Saturday.
