INGLEWOOD, Calif. — Reinforcements have arrived.
The Broncos officially activated safety Justin Simmons, tight end Greg Dulcich and cornerback Michael Ojemudia from injured reserve on Monday, the team announced.
All three players are now eligible to play against the Chargers on “Monday Night Football.”
The Broncos also elevated long snapper Mitchell Fraboni and safety Anthony Harris from the practice squad to the active roster.
Simmons last played in a Week 1 matchup with the Seahawks. The 2020 Pro Bowler recorded nine tackles and a fumble recovery as he battled through an injury.
Dulcich and Ojemudia have yet to appear in a game this season, as they were placed on IR following final roster cutdown ahead of Week 1.
The Broncos selected Dulcich in the third round of the 2022 NFL Draft, while Ojemudia has started 12 games since being selected in the third round of the 2020 NFL Draft.
Denver signed Fraboni to the practice squad earlier this week, and he won an in-week competition against Joe Fortunato. Long snapper Jacob Bobenmoyer was placed on injured reserve after suffering an injury against Indianapolis in Week 5.
Harris, a veteran safety, was elevated in Week 5, as well. He played 17 special teams snaps for the Broncos.
The Broncos are eligible to activate five more players from IR over the course of the 2022 season.

Denver also released linebacker Kana’i Mauga from the practice squad.
Denver agreed to send a 2024 fourth-round pick to New York in exchange for Martin and a 2024 fifth-round pick.

The Broncos also placed running back Mike Boone on injured reserve.
Johnson will serve as the Broncos’ backup quarterback after Russell Wilson was downgraded to out with a hamstring injury.
The Broncos have seemingly made a decision at long snapper.
All three players are eligible to play against the Chargers in Week 6, but they must be activated to the 53-man roster to participate in the game.
