The Denver Broncos made several roster moves Saturday, the team announced.

Denver released veteran quarterback Blake Bortles. To fill Bortles’ former spot on the 53-man roster, the Broncos promoted defensive lineman Sylvester Williams from the practice squad to the active roster.

Denver now has three open spots on the 16-man practice squad.

The Broncos also promoted running back/fullback Jeremy Cox and inside linebacker Josh Watson from the practice squad to the active roster for Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots.

NFL teams are allowed to flex two players from the practice squad to the 53-man roster each week. Cox and Watson will be eligible to revert back to the practice squad without having to clear waivers next week.

Cox was promoted because running back Melvin Gordon was ruled out for Sunday’s game with an illness. Phillip Lindsay will start against the Patriots and Royce Freeman will rotate in. Cox will likely serve primarily as depth.
