Defensive linemen Kenard Lang and wide receiver-returner David Kircus are among those expected to be released by the Denver Broncos on Tuesday.
Others who were absent Monday when the Broncos began preparations for their last preseason game were: defensive lineman Demetrin Veal; kicker Brandon Pace; wide receiver David Terrell; running backs Cedric Cobbs and Troy Fleming; and tight end Teyo Johnson.
Coach Mike Shanahan declined to discuss any of the players because the cuts won't be official until Tuesday's deadline for teams to trim their rosters to 75.
Final cuts will come on Saturday.
Kircus is facing an October 2nd arraignment on a second-degree assault charge stemming from a May 20th fight that sent a man to the hospital with facial fractures.
