It's official: Torain cut in Denver

Posted by ESPN.com's Bill Williamson

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The Broncos have waived/injured running back Ryan Torain. Denver coach Josh McDaniels announced the move after Denver's training camp practice Wednesday.

The team signed running back Marcus Thomas to take Torain's place. Torain suffered a strained PCL in his right knee Tuesday. Had he been kept on the roster, he would have to miss the rest of the preseason. Torain will likely get an injury settlement.

The oft-injured Torain will try to hook up with another team when he heals.
