Broncos cut Gordon after latest fumble
The Denver Broncos are waiving running back Melvin Gordon, the team announced Monday.
Gordon has struggled with ball security during his third season with the Broncos, recording five fumbles through 10 games.
His latest misstep came late in the second quarter Sunday against the Las Vegas Raiders. He fumbled the ball close to the goal line while trying to fight for yardage. Although Denver retained possession, the team later had its field-goal attempt blocked.
"I don't think that's the reason we lost the game because we recovered it, but it definitely didn't help," Gordon said, according to Denver 9News' Mike Klis.
Gordon added that he was "sick" after his latest fumble.
"I kind of know what comes after that at this point," he said postgame. "I shot my own self in the foot."
The Broncos lost their second straight game 22-16 in overtime Sunday to their AFC West rivals.
