The Denver Broncos have designated TE Jake Butt to return from injured reserve on Thursday and activated WR Diontae Spencer from the COVID-19 list.
Butt, 25, is a former fifth-round of the Broncos back in 2017. Before he suffered an ACL injury at Michigan, Butt was considered a first-round talent and one of the best tight ends in a very deep class.
Butt signed a four-year, $2.7 million contract with the Broncos that included a $300,948 signing bonus.
In 2020, Butt has appeared in five games for the Broncos and caught two passes for five yards and no touchdowns.
