The Broncos had to add some depth at running back given that Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman are both out with injuries. C.J. Anderson and Juwan Thompson will operate as the team’s top two running backs for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins.
Stewart, 25, signed on with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent out of Stanford back in 2012. Since then, he’s played for the Jets and Raiders before joining the Broncos a little over a month ago.
Stewart hasn’t appeared in a game this season, but he saw some limited playing time last year while playing for the Raiders.
