The Denver Broncos have waived Melvin Gordon III.

Gordon fumbled for the fifth time this season during the Denver Broncos' loss against the Las Vegas Raiders.

Gordon was Denver's leader in carries with 90 and rushing yards with 318.

"I was sick about it, obviously,'' Gordon said after Sunday's loss. "I kind of know what comes after that at this point. I shot my own self in the foot. I am a little salty because I was feeling it [Sunday]. That happened and I kind of knew that I was going to have to find a way to get back in rhythm. I knew it was going to be tough. I tried to make splashes here and there after it but my share of opportunities kind of dwindled after that, so that's my fault.''
