Banged-up Broncos bring in Fargas

Posted: Updated:

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — With their top three tailbacks sidelined, the Denver Broncos have signed veteran free agent Justin Fargas.

The 30-year-old Fargas spent his first seven seasons in Oakland after the Raiders drafted him in the third round out of Southern Cal in 2003. He failed his physical with the Raiders in March because of a knee injury.

The oft-injured Fargas has been a force when healthy. He's rushed for 3,369 yards on 827 career carries for a 4.1-yard average and 10 touchdowns. He's also caught 77 passes for 523 yards.

The Broncos lost their top two tailbacks, Knowshon Moreno (hamstring) and Correll Buckhalter (back) on the first day of training camp and LenDale White (leg) went down two days after signing with the Broncos last week.
