Broncos shuffle backfield on eve of showdown

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) The Denver Broncos have shuffled their thin backfield on the eve of their showdown with the Miami Dolphins. They promoted Jeremy Stewart from their practice squad and waived rookie Kapri Bibbs.

Stewart gives the Broncos' backfield more experience with Ronnie Hillman (foot) and Montee Ball (groin) sidelined.

The other two running backs are second-year pro C.J. Anderson and rookie Juwan Thompson.

Stewart is a third-year pro from Cal who appeared in 17 games during his first two NFL seasons in Oakland. The Broncos signed him to their practice squad Oct. 8.

Stewart has one career TD run on 27 carries for 103 yards and 10 catches for 68 yards. He also plays special teams and owns a 17.3-yard average on eight kickoff returns.
