The Broncos made 13 roster moves yesterday including releasing long-time long-snapper Lonie Paxton. They plan to replace him with undrafted rookie Aaron Brewer.

They also waived receivers Cameron Kenney and Mark Dell, running back Xavier Omon, offensive linemen Mike Remmers and Austin Wuebbels, tight end Anthony Miller, cornerback Ramzee Robinson, linebacker Elliot Coffee, fullback Austin Sylvester, defensive end Cyril Obiozor, and former University of Colorado safety Anthony Perkins. Denver also placed defensive end Jason Hunter on injured reserve.

COURT UPHOLDS SUSPENSION OF D.J. WILLIAMS

A federal appeals court has backed the NFL over the performance-enhancing drug suspension of Denver Broncos linebacker D.J. Williams.

A three-judge panel of the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld Williams' six-game ban, saying that it is not the court's place to intervene in this kind of employment dispute. Williams' suspension stems from a failed drug test taken last August.
