After Friday's practice Broncos coach Gary Kubiwk said fullback Andy Janovich (ankle) will be placed on injured reserve today and that wide receiver Kalif Raymond will be promoted from the practice squad. Wide receiver Bennie Fowler (knee) was ruled out for Sunday by Kubiak as well. Raymond's move to the active roster means the Broncos will have eight receivers on the 53-man roster.

"It's a tragic deal. This world is a bit crazy right now, just a bit crazy. Hopefully we can stop the nonsense that goes on. What a great kid. We appreciated having him here. Our hearts go out to his family." -- coach Andy Reid on the shooting death of former Chiefs RB Joe McKnight.

Saints RB Mark Ingram (toe) was participating in the early portion of practice open to the media Friday for the first time this week. We'll find out later if he participated in team drills and what his official status is for Sunday's game against the Lions. But his participation was a good sign he could be able to play. LT Terron Armstead (knee/quad) and RB Daniel Lasco (hamstring) remained absent from practice.
