The Broncos signed 26-year-old wide receiver Corbin Louks, just two days after losing receiver Kyle Williams for the season with a ruptured Achilles. Louks signed a reserve-future contract with the Chiefs in December, but was waived on May 5.

The Broncos receiver was carted off the field after sustaining an injury during special teams drills on Saturday. The team announced that Williams suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon in his left leg.

The 27-year-old receiver struggled with injuries in the past, suffering two torn ACLs previously, as well as a shoulder injury that kept him out of the entire 2014 season, before rupturing his Achilles Saturday.

Louks played quarterback for Utah before transferring to Nevada in 2009, where he made the switch to safety and then eventually, to wide receiver. The 6-foot, 200-pound receiver played for the then-Boston (now Mahoning Valley) Brawlers of the Fall Experimental Football League (FXFL) last year.

He is a first-year player who has competed on practice squads with Seattle (2012) and Kansas City (2014) since entering the NFL with the Seahawks in 2012 from Nevada.

Louks will have his work cut out for him if he wants to make the Broncos’ 53-man roster.

The Broncos also announced Sunday that they signed rookie offensive tackle Charles Sweeton and waived injured tackle Connor Rains. Rains, a college free agent out of Wyoming, hurt his foot during Friday’s training camp practice.

Sweeton is a 6-foot-5, 291-pound tackle from the University of Tennessee-Martin, and started all four years on the offensive line.
