The Denver Broncos have signed a wide receiver as a replacement, having lost two of their pass catchers on Monday.
Nick Williams is rejoining the roster after two spells with the team.
Williams, who registered 28 catches for 436 yards and two touchdowns last season, is back for a third time after going undrafted out of UNLV.
Denver was in a bit of a bind this week after they were forced to waive KJ Hamler with a non-football injury designation on Monday while Tim Patrick suffered a torn Achilles in practice. The possibility of bringing Hamler back later in the season remains, but Patrick is done for the year.
The Broncos had a difficult Monday as Hamler announced he was diagnosed with pericarditis shortly after Patrick was carted off. The former will step away from football to deal with the mild heart irritation.
While he has been waived, Hamler could be cleared for football activities in a few weeks’ time, with the procedural move allowing for his return this season.
The Broncos are keeping the door open but have brought Williams back in the meantime. They now have 12 receivers on their roster given this latest addition, with Jerry Jeudy, Cortland Sutton, and rookie Marvin Mims topping the depth chart.
