Watson will be placed on injured reserve Wednesday due to a foot injury, Mike Klis of 9 News Denver reports.
Watson had been slowed by a calf issue in recent weeks, but was able to suit up for Sunday's loss to the Eagles, only to sustain a foot injury during the contest. After signing Watson to a three-year deal in March, the Broncos had hoped that he would provide an upgrade at right tackle over Donald Stephenson (calf), but Watson's poor health seemed to affect his play, as the veteran had surrendered 7.5 sacks. The Broncos will sign offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio to bolster their depth at the position.
Watson (calf) was a full participant at Friday's practice.
Watson was forced to miss his first game of the season due to a calf injury in the Broncos' Week 7 loss to the Chargers. However, after practicing in limited fashion Thursday, the offensive lineman returned to practice in full Friday, and he appears on track to take the field Monday against the Chiefs barring any setbacks.
Watson (calf) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports.
Watson will miss his first game of the season and Billy Turner will likely slot into his place.
Watson played only 35 of 81 snaps in Sunday night's game after suffering the injury late in the first half. The injury doesn't appear to be overly serious, but Donald Stephenson or Billy Turner are likely to fill in if the 2013 second-round pick is forced to miss any time.
