Default Brandon Minor added to practice squad

Aaron Wilson reported via Twitter that the Broncos have added former Michigan running back Brandon Minor to the practice squad.

Minor is a big back at 6'1" 218 pounds and suffered a torn rotator cuff at the end of the 2009 season where he was a Maxwell Award candidate as well as a Doak Walker award candidate.

From what I remember in his career at Michigan, Minor was a very solid complimentary power back who was not flashy, but was reliable and always got the job done. He's likely been recovering from his rotator cuff injury this year, so I'm not sure where he's at health-wise, but he's spent time with the Colts and tried out for the Packers in November

He was a good bruising back from what I remember what do you all think?

Seems like good competition for Lendale White going into camp next year for the short yardage job. Can't imagine a torn rotator cuff would significantly handicap a short yardage RB either.

I have rotator issues and I wouldn't want to lead with that shoulder while tucking a football. Catching out of the backfield would be an issue also.

I liked Brandon Minor at Michigan....when he was playing.

Minor had trouble staying healthy at Michigan and was always nursing one injury or another.

Nice size and runs hard between the tackles with decent burst through the hole.

Worth bringing in to take a look at.

if Minor can stay healthy he'll do good things for the Broncos. but staying healthy has always been his issue. he's got great potential but even in HS his senior year got snake bit with injuries.

The answer to not signing Ball from the Raiders in the offseason?
