Broncos place Fort on IR, sign offensive lineman
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — The Denver Broncos have placed tight end Austin Fort on injured reserve and signed free agent offensive lineman Adam Bisnowaty.
Fort was making a strong push to become the Broncos’ latest undrafted gem. He tore his left ACL in Denver’s 22-14 loss at Seattle on Thursday night.
The Broncos entered training camp deep at tight end, but the only ones who haven’t been hurt this summer are first-round pick Noah Fant and free agent pickup Moral Stephens.
Jake Butt (knee), Bug Howard (ankle), Jeff Heuerman (shoulder) and Troy Fumagalli (hip) have all been sidelined.
Bisnowaty is a 2017 sixth-round draft pick by the New York Giants out of Pitt. He played in one regular-season game for the Giants that season. He’s also spent time on the Giants’ and Vikings’ practice squads and spent a portion of the 2019 offseason with Washington.
