Jeremiah Johnson (Denver Post file)
The Broncos started the week with five running backs. They now have three.

In a procedural move, the Broncos released running back Jeremiah Johnson from their practice squad Friday with the plan of re-signing him back early next week. The move was made because the Broncos only have 52 players on their 53-man roster after starting tailback Willis McGahee was placed Wednesday on injured reserve with a designation to return.

Because Johnson has three years of NFL service, the Broncos had to either promote Johnson from the practice squad to fill the vacated spot on the 53-man roster or release him. The Broncos have decided instead to take on the Kansas City Chiefs this Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium with a three-man, running-back committee of Knowshon Moreno, Lance Ball and Ronnie Hillman.
