KJ Hamler looks to pick up where he left off in preseason debut for Broncos


With KJ Hamler poised to return to game action for the first time since tearing his left ACL and injuring his hip in Week 3 last year, the wideout is determined to prove he’s still a deep threat.

The third-year pro is likely to play in the Broncos’ preseason finale Saturday against Minnesota at Empower Field, where Hamler was injured while jumping for an errant pass against the Jets.

“I just want to go out there and do what I was doing last year before I got hurt,” Hamler said.

The road back from those injuries required multiple surgeries and months of rehabilitation. Coach Nathaniel Hackett vowed to ease No. 1 into action. He was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list on Aug. 1, more than 10 months after his injury.

Hamler then made his debut in the team period of practice on Aug. 8, but was sidelined again the next day due to a sore left knee. Both Hackett and Hamler said that the wideout did not suffer a setback, calling the move precautionary.
