ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos made a roster move on Friday by signing long snapper Thomas Gafford.

Gafford will take the place of regular long snapper Casey Kreiter. Kreiter missed Thursday’s practice and is dealing with a calf-injury that will keep him out for at least one game.

The signing of Gafford comes at an interesting time as the Broncos prepare to take on the Kansas City Chiefs.

Gafford was the long snapper for the Chiefs for seven seasons and will play his old team at Mile High on Sunday night.

Gafford is a 10-year veteran of the NFL. He played with the Chiefs from 2008-2014. In 2015, he played 11 games for the Chicago Bears and 3 for the Oakland Raiders.

The Broncos waived defensive tackle Darius Kilgo to make room on the roster for Gafford.
