ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - The Denver Broncos have waived oft-injured running back Ryan Torain, who was diagnosed with a strained knee ligament.

A fifth-round pick last season after an injury-plagued career at Arizona State, Torain missed almost all of last season. He broke his elbow during training camp and played just parts of two games before a season-ending knee injury sidelined him once again.

After a long rehabilitation, Torain was having a decent training camp but was stuck in a crowded backfield that includes top draft pick Knowshon Moreno, free agents Correll Buckhalter and Lamont Jordan and holdover Peyton Hillis.

The Broncos signed running back Marcus Thomas to take his spot on the 80-man roster.
