Wide receivers Greg Orton and Quincy McDuffie were waived/injured Sunday as the Denver Broncos got a jump start on the first round of cuts by waiving 11 players.
Orton spent the past two seasons on Denver's practice squad. The former Purdue player was having a good training camp and had a shot at making the roster when he sprained an ankle during the team's stadium scrimmage on Aug. 3 and never returned to action.
McDuffie hoped to challenge for a spot as a returner, but the speedster from Central Florida was hampered by a troublesome hamstring.
The Broncos must make two more cuts by Tuesday's deadline to trim rosters to 75.

According to Mike Klis of the Denver Post, Broncos rookie running back Montee Ball was working with the starting offense today.
Yes, it was RB Montee Ball working with Peyton Manning's first-team offense. Ronnie Hillman was carrying around a football everywhere.

With focus being on the Denver Broncos defense and the absence of Von Miller for six games, Ronnie Hillman has quietly been losing the starting job at running back.

The post Ronnie Hillman is quickly losing his starting job appeared first on Players View.
We’ve all seen this story, we know Decker and Thomas can make great catches from the veteran that is Peyton Manning, we know that Von Miller can make impressive tackles and make juke-moves to get to whichever player has the ball.
What we haven’t seen is a running game that doesn’t drop the ball, a defense without Miller and one that looked soft against the Rams (not the second...
Although Wes Welker’s injury was never considered very serious it is still a relief to Bronco’s fans that he will be ready for the season opener against the Ravens on September 5th
“If we had a game tomorrow, he’d be out there,” Fox said, via Arnie Stapleton of the Associated Press. “This is preseason, we’re trying to get ready for our regular season and yet still hone...
Top intangibles, undersized quarterback, but if Katz was three inches taller and he could be house hold name. Looks poised throwing the ball. A Top competitor. Exceptional athlete. Showed some flashes of ability as a passer. Very good runner and scrambler for a quarterback. Interesting developmental type. Has enough going for him to be considered.

Denver Broncos wide receiver got slapped with a $7,875 fine for grabbing and twisting a facemask while covering on a punt return in the first quarter last Saturday at Seattle, reports NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.
It was the only fine levied from the game that Seattle controlled, winning a lopsided 40-10 (the high-low blocks that led to Derek Wolfe’s neck injury incurred no fines).
John Fox swears he hasn't lost confidence in Ronnie Hillman even though the second-year running back has had back-to-back games with fumbles returned for touchdowns.
Still, it was rookie Montee Ball who got most of the work Monday with Denver's starters for the first time all summer.
''It's just practice,'' Fox said. ''I wouldn't read too...
The Broncos have made it clear all along they wouldn't mind throwing the ball fewer times than in 2012 when they averaged 37 passing attempts in the regular season. It's not a stylistic issue as much as it is a realization that it would be a product of among other things an improvement in the ground game.
So if Saturday night's 27-26 victory over the St. Louis Rams truly...
Peyton Manning wasn't in pads Wednesday when the Denver Broncos began preparations for the Washington Redskins.
After stretching with his teammates, Manning donned his helmet but was strictly an observer as backup Brock Osweiler and No. 3 quarterback Zac Dysert took snaps during the first part of practice that was open to reporters.
Manning chatted with coach John Fox and offensive...
Denver rookie running Montee Ball was working with Peyton Manning and the first-team on Monday, according to Mike Klis of the Denver Post.Fantasy Spin:Ball has always been expected to win the starting role and push Ronnie Hillman into a third-down receiving role. We just didn't know it could happen as early as Week 1 since coach John Fox has never been quick to trust rookies.
Rookie linebacker Alec Ogletree ruined Ronnie Hillman's night with a strip-and-score takeaway and kept Peyton Manning from turning all those passes into points with a big interception. Yet the St. Louis Rams' lost 27-26 at Denver on Saturday night.
