ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The Denver Broncos, who finished last season thin at running back because of injuries, released three players at that position Wednesday.
P.J. Pope, who started in a Week 16 loss to the Buffalo Bills but left with a hamstring injury, was cut, as were fellow running backs Alex Haynes and Anthony Alridge. Haynes didn't play in a game last season, and Alridge, a rookie, spent the year on injured reserve after hurting his left foot during the preseason.
