Englewood, CO (SportsNetwork.com) - Defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson was among Saturday's final cuts by the Denver Broncos.
Vickerson started 41 of the 47 games he played over the last four years for the Broncos, though a dislocated hip limited him to 11 games last season.
The other vested veterans who were cut include tight ends Jameson Konz and Cameron Morrah, cornerback Jerome Murphy and defensive lineman Brian Sanford.
Wide receivers Bennie Fowler and Nathan Palmer, quarterback Zac Dysert, safeties John Boyett and Duke Ihenacho, running back Kapri Bibbs, linebackers Shaquil Barrett and L.J. Fort, defensive tackles Sione Fua, tight end Gerell Robinson, guards Ryan Miller and Vinston Painter, cornerbacks Jordan Sullen and Louis Young, and center Matt Paradis were all waived.
Ihenacho started 14 games and had 73 tackles for Denver last season.
The club also placed defensive end Kenny Anunike onto the injured reserve list, while kicker Matt Prater was marked as reserve/suspended. Prater will miss the season's first four games for a violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy.
