For those of you who wondered why the Broncos stockpiled so many RBs:

Ryan Torain is essentially finished with the Broncos after he was placed on the waived injured list Wednesday.
Injuries continued to haunt Torain after he was diagnosed Wednesday with a strained left knee ligament.
Torain had missed most of his rookie year in 2008 with a dislocated elbow and a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.
To replace Torain, the Broncos signed former University of Texas-El Paso running back Marcus Thomas, who was at practice Wednesday. The tailback Thomas was a fifth-round draft pick of the San Diego Chargers last year.
Torain, who was impressive in one half of one game last season, was expected to get another chance provided he returned healthy from knee surgery. But Wednesday's strain ended that expectation.
The once-promising Torain returned in Week 9 last year from a dislocated elbow, but in his next game, against Cleveland, he left with a knee injury that turned out to be a torn ACL.
In another running back development, LaMont Jordan returned to practice from his leg injury Wednesday.
