The Broncos on Wednesday placed starting right tackle Menelik Watson in season-ending injured reserve and signed former Bills tackle Cyrus Kouandjio.

Watson has been dealing with a calf injury the last two weeks that sidelined him for the Broncos’ Week 7 loss at Los Angeles.

The Broncos signed Watson as a free agent in March to take over the starting job from Donald Stephenson, an 2016 free-agent acquisition who struggled in his first season with the Broncos with both injury and performance. Watson signed a three-year, $18.375 million contract that included $5.5. million guaranteed at signing.

Watson spent the first four years of his NFL career in Oakland where he dealt with a string of injuries that limited his time on the field. When he arrived in Denver, Watson expressed hope that the Broncos’ training staff could help him get physically healthy and stay on the field.
