Rahim Moore injury: Broncos place safety on IR with designation to return

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Broncos have ended Rahim Moore's regular season.

The Denver Broncos have suffered a casualty in the secondary. Denver has placed safety Rahim Moore on injured reserve with a designation to return, according to the Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson. Moore would be able to return to the lineup if the Broncos made it to the AFC Conference Championship game.

Denver signed Michael Huff to replace Moore in the lineup on Tuesday. Moore underwent surgery on his leg on Monday to stop bleeding in a muscle. The time of his recovery is unclear but he will be out until the first two rounds of the playoffs, at least.

The Broncos will face the New England Patriots on Sunday and will look to expand their lead in the AFC West. It is unclear if Huff will play in Week 12, but the Broncos do have Omar Bolden and David Bruton on the roster. Denver is also dealing with a concussion to wide receiver Wes Welker.
