Broncos Place Quanterus Smith On IR

The Broncos have decided to place defensive end Quanterus Smith on injured reserve, reports Mike Klis of the Denver Post (via Twitter).

The team has promoted linebacker Shaquil Barrett to the active roster to replace Smith.

Smith has played just over a quarter of the Broncos’ defensive snaps this season, but struggled with a knee injury and was ruled out for this Sunday’s game against the Colts. The team needed the extra depth at linebacker, especially with Brandon Marshall‘s status uncertain, and needed to make space on the roster for Barrett, reports Jeff Legwold of ESPN (via Twitter).
