Broncos Place Four Players On Injured Lists

The Denver Broncos announced on Sunday that they are placing WR KJ Hamler and DT Mike Purcell on the non-football injury list. The team is also placing OLB Baron Browning and WR Kendall Hinton on the physically-unable-to-perform list.

Hamler recently agreed to re-work his rookie contract with the Broncos at the end of June and will retain his $1.583M base salary, with the chance to earn $417K in receiving incentives.

In addition, an injury-specific injured-reserve split was added, which will lessen the cap hit for the team if he lands on injured reserve with a specific injury.

Hamler, 23, was a two-year starter at Penn State and earned second-team All-Big Ten honors before being selected by the Broncos in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft.

He signed a four-year, $7,137,128 rookie contract that includes a $2,750,638 signing bonus. 

In 2022, Hamler appeared in six games for the Broncos, recording seven catches for 165 yards.
