Broncos kick returner Omar Bolden headed to injured reserve, promote Taurean Dixon from practice squad

Denver Broncos kick returner Omar Bolden is out for the remainder of the season with a torn posterior cruciate ligament suffered against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He'll be placed on injured reserve. The Broncos promoted cornerback Taurean Dixon from the practice squad. "He has a partial tear, so he's probably heading to IR here in the next couple days,'' Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said. "We'll have to replace him." Bolden doesn't require surgery. He had a 42-yard punt return against the Steelers. "We'll miss him, obviously he had an impact play early in the game,'' Kubiak said. "Just bad luck there.'' Follow me on Twitter: @AaronWilson_NFL Aaron Wilson covers the Texans for The Houston Chronicle.
