Denver Broncos Cut J.J. Arrington

The depth at running back for the Denver Broncos became a little thinner on Wednesday with the team releasing former Arizona Cardinal J.J. Arrington.

The depth at running back for the Denver Broncos took its first hit of the season on Wednesday with the team releasing J.J. Arrington when it was revealed the former Arizona Cardinal will need season-ending microfracture surgery on his right knee.

Arrington, who was recovering from offseason arthroscopic knee surgery when the Broncos signed him three months ago, had agreed to a 4-year, $10 million deal with $3 million in guarantees, but the guarantees included a knee injury waiver according to the Denver Post.

His departure is not expected to have a dramatic effect, currently the Broncos list seven players ready to do battle in the backfield including first round draft selection Knowshon Moreno, Correll Buckhalter, LaMont Jordan and Ryan Torrain. Recommended Stories
