Buckhalter Down, Thigpen Signed

August 16, 2009

We are hearing reports via Frank Shwab of The Colorado Springs Gazettes’ twitter page that Running Back Correll Buckhalter has gone down for the day with an unspecified leg injury. Here is what Shwab tweeted around 7 minutes ago:

Correll Buckhalter has an unspecified injury, was out today. The Broncos signed RB Marcus Thigpen, rookie from Indiana. 

Thigpen is a rookie Running Back from Indiana University. I love this move. If Correll Buckhalter will be down for a long period of time, Thigpen is a great player to throw into camp to replace him. 

At Indiana, Thigpen became the first player ever to have both 1,000 yards rushing yards, 1,000 yards receiving and 1,000 yards kick returning all in a single season. He also managed to become the 19th leading rusher in school history to cross the 1,500-yard rushing barrier

This has yet to be confirmed by the Broncos or any other source but we will keep you updated if/when it is. Keep it here!

UPDATE: The Denver Post picked up this article also saying that we have also waived Offensive Guard Pat Murray to make room for Thigpen on the roster.
