ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP)

The Denver Broncos have claimed DeMario Pressley off waivers to bolster their depleted defensive line.

Earlier in the week, the Broncos lost Marcus Thomas (strained pectoral) and Ty Warren (torn triceps) for an indefinite amount of time.

The 6-foot-3, 301-pound Pressley became available when he was released by Indianapolis. Pressley is a fourth-year player out of North Carolina State. He appeared in one game for Houston last season.

With the injuries to Thomas and Warren, Brodrick Bunkley and Kevin Vickerson will receive a majority of the reps. It also opens up an opportunity for other defensive tackles such as Ryan McBean, Mitch Unrein, Ronnell Brown and now Pressley. Jeremy Jarmon, who's typically a defensive end, is moving inside to create more depth at the position.
