The Denver Broncos waived Air Force Academy grad Ben Garland on Friday, but the defensive tackle might not need to pack his bags just yet.

Garland, who recorded a sack in Denver’s preseason-ending 16-13 win over Arizona on Thursday, could end up on the Broncos’ practice squad, according to multiple reports. (UPDATE: The Broncos released their practice squad via Twitter, and Garland’s on it.)

Denver and the 31 other NFL clubs had to cut their rosters to 53 players by 9 p.m. Eastern on Friday, but at noon Saturday, the teams can begin building practice squads of up to eight players.

The report linked above called him a “team favorite.” After Action readers already know that.

Garland joins Chad Hall and Caleb Campbell as former academy players on the wrong end of the NFL’s roster drawdown.
