The Denver Broncos have placed defensive lineman J'Vonne Parker on injured reserve with a knee injury.
Team spokesman Dave Gaylinn said Saturday that Parker was hurt Thursday while the Broncos were practicing at Invesco Field.
Parker was undrafted out of Rutgers in 2005, but the fifth-year pro has made stops in Carolina, Atlanta, Baltimore, Dallas and Cleveland. He has six tackles and a fumble recovery in appearances in 11 games.
