Broncos P Marquette King said he has been released from injured reserve on Monday, per Jim Trotter. King will not undergo surgery for abductor injury, but will rehab the injury over the next three months.
King thanked Broncos VP John Elway and the organization on Twitter:
I’d like to thank John Elway, and the Broncos organization for the chance, injuries suck…

Reports mentioned last week that King was going to be released from injured reserve at some point in the near future, so this shouldn’t come as a big surprise.
King, 29, originally signed by the Raiders as an undrafted free agent of Fort Valley State back in 2012. He was in the third year of his five-year, $16.5 million contract that included $7.75 million guaranteed when the Raiders cut him loose during the offseason.
King later signed a three-year, $7 million contract with the Broncos.
In 2018, King appeared in four games for the Broncos and totaled 814 punt yards on 20 attempts and one touchback.
