Broncos Place Kapri Bibbs On IR

As expected, the Broncos have placed Kapri Bibbs on injured reserve. The team’s signing of Justin Forsett earlier today was a pretty good indication that Bibbs was done for the year. Kapri Bibbs (vertical)

Bibbs’ left ankle was actually diagnosed as 2-to-4 week injury, Mike Klis of 9News tweets. However, the team needed his roster spot. Ultimately, the team needed to have at least three running backs available and they could not afford to wait for Bibbs return. Now, they have the newly-acquired Justin Forsett to back up Devontae Booker and Juwan Thompson.

Bibbs, a Colorado State product, appeared in 12 games for Denver this year. In his reserve role, the tailback had 29 carries for 129 yards. He also added two catches for 75 yards and one score.

  1. What is wrong with Booker? He was running into the back of O-lineman last week. He was horrible. I was begging Kubiak to give Juwan Thompson more chances since Kapri went out. This is bad news that Kapri is done since he can be better then Booker. Kapri was the only reason we got an offensive touchdown last week.

    Chris right on I’ve always liked Bibbs, hope he’s back for play offs, hell I hope we’re back for playoffs! Juwan could be the man. Glad they kept both Bibbs and Juwan their like little full backs
