Hamler reinjures hamstring in Broncos game vs. Jets

Former Penn State receiver KJ Hamler has been battling a nagging hamstring injury, and he aggravated it again in Thursday night’s game against the Jets.

He won’t return to the game, according to reports.

Hamler missed the Broncos’ season opener because of the hamstring. He’s been effective since returning, catching six passes for 75 yards over the past two games.

Hamler was an electrifying player at Penn State and was selected in the second round of this year’s draft, the No. 46 overall pick.

At Penn State, Hamler finished his career with 98 catches for 1,658 yards and 13 TDs, including a long score of 93 yards.

He caught 56 passes for 904 yards and eight TDs last season for the Lions.
