LaCosse caught both of his targets for 19 yards during Sunday's 34-16 loss at the Jets.
LaCosse didn't make the stat sheet until the fourth quarter, the game already well under control. The Illinois product is supposed to provide the Denver tight-end room with a receiving threat with Jake Butt (knee) out for the year, but that hasn't happened yet with just three catches in two games. He needs to pick things up Sunday against a Rams team that is capable of getting ahead of teams early.
The Broncos signed LaCosse off the Giants' practice squad Monday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports.
LaCosse is the fourth tight end on the Broncos' depth chart, so he is expected to mainly provide special teams help for the club. He last appeared in a game for the Giants in Week 9.
LaCosse was waived by the Giants on Saturday.
LaCosse had been active for the Giants' previous three games but did not record a reception. The 25-year-old could end up on the team's practice squad if he clears waivers.
