Broncos’ KJ Hamler, Josey Jewell likely to play in Week 3 against 49ers


KJ Hamler knows it’s been a quiet start to the season for him, but he’s ready to make some noise Sunday against San Francisco.

The Broncos’ wideout, who was targeted once in Week 1 and was inactive in Week 2, is trending towards playing Week 3 at Empower Field. Hamler has been limited in practice this week, both due to the team’s ongoing caution in his return from last year’s serious knee/hip injuries, and also a groin injury.

But Hamler said Thursday he feels “excellent” and vowed to bring “big plays and explosiveness” upon his return.

“I’ve been doing good, progressing (from the groin injury), coming here every day ready to work and going into treatment every day ready to work,” Hamler said. “It’s positive thoughts, positive mindset for me… I know I can still stretch the defense even with the knee brace. I can be the speed demon that they need to open stuff up.”

Hamler has 35 catches for 455 yards and three touchdowns in his career, including a game-winning TD catch as time expired to beat the Chargers in a comeback win at home in 2020.
