In a corresponding move, the Broncos signed rookie defensive lineman Nelson Adams, who was formerly with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Winn, who was placed on injured reserve Saturday, suffered the torn ACL against the Chicago Bears on Thursday night, the Broncos preseason opener. A person with knowledge of the diagnosis says Denver Broncos nose tackle Billy Winn will miss the entire 2017 season with a serious right knee injury.

Adams is 6-foot-3, 287 pounds, and had 80 tackles in his career at Mississippi State, which included 16 starts.

Saturday: hit-or-miss storms may still bring locally-heavy rain
A weak front drops south of the Valley on Sunday pushing most of the scattered storms southward into Central and South Alabama. The rain will stay clear of the area through the evening, leaving temperatures in the low to mid 70s and a few clouds.

North Korea slams new sanctions
China urged North Korea to stop conducting missile and nuclear tests because it provokes the "international community's goodwill". The sanctions could further choke North Korea's struggling economy by slashing its $3 billion annual export revenue by a third.

He also showed he can be effective at times in run defense, but his production didn't stand out statistically. There is hope, if not certainty, Peko could resume light football drills next week when the Broncos fly to San Francisco for a couple days of practices and a preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers.

The injury to Winn was one of a wave of injuries to materialize over the week. The Broncos thought highly of him, enough to bring him back for a second year after he was sort of brought in at the last minute in 2016. He will become the fourth nose tackle on the roster, joining Domata Peko, undrafted rookie Tyrique Jarrett and Kyle Peko, who is now on the physically unable to perform list. We here at Predominantly Orange wish him nothing but the best.
