Banged-up Broncos add RB LenDale White to roster
Question of the Day
The team signed White on Wednesday to provide depth after Correll Buckhalter (back) and Knowshon Moreno (hamstring) were injured on the first day of training camp.
Moreno is expected to miss the rest of camp, and Buckhalter about a week.
In a somewhat surprising twist, the Broncos released Kolby Smith, the most experienced of their current crop of backup running backs who had received a heavy workload through the first four days of camp.
He remains eligible to practice and play in preseason games.
“Had a long talk with him and really discussed the future,” McDaniels said after practice Wednesday night. “We’re going to judge him and make our judgments on LenDale White going forward as a Denver Bronco.
“Everybody makes mistakes.”
Once practice finished, White walked off the field and straight into the team facilities without stopping to talk.
White grew up in Denver and played for USC, where he rushed for 3,159 yards and established school and Pac-10 Conference records with 57 total touchdowns, including 52 rushing.
He was selected in the second round of the 2006 draft by Tennessee, spending four seasons with the Titans.
White has had issues with his weight during his career. He ballooned to about 265 pounds with the Titans, before shedding the weight heading into camp last summer.
In 2009, Chris Johnson emerged as the Titans’ top tailback, becoming a 2,000-yard rusher. Basically, White became expendable, the tandem once known as Smash and Dash broken up.
White was traded to Seattle for draft picks in April and showed up with the Seahawks, tipping the scales at a robust 219 pounds.
