The Broncos have signed Steven Hauschka to handle their placekicking duties Sunday at Arizona. The team's regular kicker, Matt Prater, didn't travel with the team after having been listed as questionable on the injury report with a groin injury.

Hauschka, who's in his third season, has made 10-of-15 field-goal attempts in 17 games with the Ravens in 2008 and '09, but several missed attempts in the late stages of games led to his release last year. Hauschka has also spent time with the Vikings, Falcons and Lions, but his only regular-season kicks came as a Raven.

To clear roster space for Hauschka, the Broncos waived undrafted rookie OL Stanley Daniels, who started four of the seven games in which he played this season.
