The Denver Broncos have waived cornerback Curtis Marsh to make room for the return of safety T.J. Ward.

Ward was suspended for a single game for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy.

Ward was charged with a misdemeanor for an incident at PT’s All Nude club. He was accused of throwing glass at a female bartender, which hit her in the wrist, in May 2014. The charges were dropped in exchange for community service. In a statement earlier this month, Ward said he had no one to blame for this but himself:

"I take full responsibility for the incident that occurred in May 2014 and am willing to accept the consequences of my actions by serving my one game suspension. Although I was never arrested and all charges against me were ultimately dismissed, I have no one to blame but myself for being in the predicament that evening. To the Denver Broncos organization, the Bowlen family and to the Denver Bronco fans, I want to apologize for my conduct. I have learned from my mistakes and will continue to be a pillar in the community to make myself a stronger person and player for the Denver Broncos."

In a statement from the team, the Broncos pointed out Ward is heavily involved in the Denver community. His work includes running the T.J. Ward Foundation that gives back to underprivileged communities.

Marsh is a fourth-year player who was signed by the Broncos on Dec. 29. He was inactive for the game Sunday against the Ravens.
