Broncos Release Jacobs, Place Powell On PUP List

DENVER (AP) - The Denver Broncos released wide receiver Taylor Jacobs and placed rookie defensive tackle Carlton Powell on the reserve/physically unable to perform list Tuesday.

Jacobs, in his sixth year out of Florida, signed with the Broncos last Nov. 6 and played six games in 2007, returning three kicks for 35 yards.

Powell, Denver's 2008 fifth-round pick out of Virginia Tech, suffered an injured right achilles tendon during offseason workouts in July.
