Melvin Gordon’s race in Denver has come to an end.

NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport revealed on Monday that the Broncos have waived the veteran running back, according to people briefed on the situation.

The team later confirmed the move.

Gordon’s cut came after another error-filled game in which a running back fumbled again near the goal line, costing the Broncos a touchdown chance late in the first half of Sunday’s loss to Las Vegas. It was Gordon’s fifth fumble of the season, two of which were lost.

“It really made me sick,” Gordon said of his fumbling after losing to the Raiders in overtime on Sunday. “I shot myself in the foot and I’m a little salty. I felt it today.”

The end of Gordon in Denver this season could have come much sooner. He found himself on the bench after a Week 4 loss in Vegas after a fumble. But a knee injury to Havonte Williams, sustained late in the season in the same game, caused Gordon to lengthen slightly.

The runner finally ran out of rope due to continued mental errors. He missed passes, missed blocks and didn’t play well on the ground, averaging 3.13 yards per carry in his last eight games.

Gordon was outplayed by Latavius ​​Murray, 32, who is looking to play the lead in Week 12.

However, given his experience, Gordon could be sought after by a club in need of a veteran who has demonstrated the ability to run and catch passes in the past.

Withdrawing Gordon this week gets more interesting as RB’s newly acquired Chase Edmonds left Sunday’s game early with an injury. NFL Network insider Tom Pelissero revealed that Edmonds is expected to miss several weeks with a severe ankle sprain.

Mike Boone is eligible to come off the injured reserve in week 13. The Broncos have Marlon Mack on the roster and Divine Ozigbo on the practice team.
