Broncos WR K.J. Hamler (hamstring) is out for Sunday's game against the Patriots. The early rule-out hints at a multi-week injury. Jerry Jeudy, Tim Patrick and DaeSean Hamilton will operate as Denver's top 3 WRs this weekend.

Broncos WR K.J. Hamler sustained a concussion in the 1st half of Sunday's game vs. the Chargers. We'll see if the rookie can get cleared for next weekend's finale vs. the Raiders.

Broncos WR K.J. Hamler was knocked out by a hamstring injury in the 1st half of Thursday night's game against the Jets. He was replaced by WR DaeSean Hamilton, who finished with 1 catch on 3 targets for 9 yards. WR Tim Patrick broke out for a 6-113-1 line in this one. We'll see when Hamler is able to return.

Broncos WR K.J. Hamler has a hamstring injury and will be out "a couple of weeks," HC Vic Fangio said Thursday. That'll hurt the rookie's chances of making an early-season impact. And hamstring injuries have a tendency to linger. We'll keep an eye on Hamler, but he's not worth a pick in redrafts right now.

The Broncos added Penn State WR K.J. Hamler in the 2nd round of the 2020 NFL Draft. He joins 1st-rounder Jerry Jeudy in Denver. A hamstring injury prevented Hamler from running at the Combine. But if he had, he might have challenged Henry Ruggs for the fastest man in Indy. He’s a blur on tape and is also lightning quick in and out of his breaks. A 2016 torn ACL cost him his final high school season and had him redshirted for his 1st year at Penn State. But Hamler led the Nittany Lions with 42 catches and 754 yards as a redshirt freshman in 2018. Then he posted a 56-904-8 line this past year, accounting for 26% of the team’s receptions, 31% of the receiving yards and 32% of the receiving TDs. Not turning 21 until July, Hamler is 1 of the youngest WR prospects in this year’s class. The big concern is his size: 5’11 and 178 pounds with 17th percentile arm length. Only 3 sub-180-pound WRs — DeSean Jackson, John Brown and Jamison Crowder — have posted multiple 800+ yard seasons over the past 10 years.
