The Broncos announced on Monday that they’ve waived linebacker Mike Mohamed, a 2011 sixth-round pick out of California, and re-instated tight end Virgil Green back to the active roster.
Mohamed was signed last week after linebacker Joe Mays was suspended for his September 23 hit on Texans quarterback Matt Schaub. Mohamed played in two games in 2011 and played on special teams for Sunday’s 37-6 win over the Raiders.
If Mohamed clears waivers, he could be re-placed on the Broncos’ practice squad.
Green was suspended for four games during the offseason for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.
Earlier in the day, coach John Fox announced that the Broncos put J.D. Walton (broken ankle) on IR and re-instated Mays to the roster after being suspended for Sunday’s win over the Raiders.
