Randy Gregory becomes 21st Broncos player on IR

The edge rusher was also fined $13,261 for unsportsmanlike conduct on top of his previous $50,000 fine for fighting.

ENGLEWOOD, Colorado — Not exactly a career day for Broncos’ outside linebacker Randy Gregory.

Although the free-agent pass rusher had his one-game suspension overturned, he was fined $50,000 for instigating, in the view of NFL disciplinarian Derrick Brooks, a postgame fight with Rams guard Oday Aboushi. That was Tuesday.

On Saturday, the Broncos announced Gregory is going on season-ending injured reserve with a troublesome knee injury that has yet to fully recover from October surgery, while the league slapped another $13,261 fine for removing the unsportsmanlike penalty he drew following a second quarter touchdown by the Rams.

Gregory was the Broncos’ top free-agent signing this offseason, drawing a five-year, $70 million contract that is guaranteed for two years and $28 million. He was a force through the first three games, but then came the knee injury in game 4 at Las Vegas and he only played in 6 games this season and had 2.0 sacks.
