PITTSBURGH (AP) The Denver Broncos deactivated Tatum Bell for the game against Pittsburg.

Bell -- a former Oklahoma State tailback -- was listed as probable late in the week despite having two sprained big toes.

He was replaced in the starting lineup by Mike Bell, who ran for 136 yards and two touchdowns on 15 carries in a 34-31 loss to Indianapolis last week.

Broncos fullback Kyle Johnson was also inactive for the game because of a sprained ankle. He was replaced by Cecil Sapp.

Also deactivated by the Broncos was wide receiver Quincy Morgan, cut by the Steelers earlier this year.

The Broncos beat the Steelers 31-20 yesterday.
