Broncos place Ja'Wuan James on non-football injury list

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) The Denver Broncos placed right tackle Ja'Wuan James on the non-football injury list Friday, two days after he tore an Achilles tendon working out away from the team's facilities, imperiling his paychecks for the upcoming season.

The move opens a spot on the Broncos' 90-man roster, but doesn't foretell whether the club will cover any of James' $10.58 million salary or his medical costs.

According to the collective bargaining agreement, the Broncos aren't contractually obligated to pay James' salary in 2021 because his injury occurred off-site, a point the NFL's management council reiterated in a memo this week to all team executives and head coaches.
