  • Bills' KJ Hamler: Joins Bills on reserve/future deal

    The Bills signed Hamler (undisclosed) to a reserve/future contract Saturday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    Hamler was placed on the Colts' practice squad injured list Dec. 1 with an undisclosed injury. His practice squad contract with Indianapolis ended Monday and he now joins the Bills later in the week. Hamler won't be eligible to play in the postseason, but he will have an opportunity to compete for a roster spot in Buffalo next season.

  • KJ Hamler: Placed on injured list

    The Colts placed Hamler (undisclosed) on the practice squad injured list Friday.

    The nature of Hamler's injury hasn't been disclosed, but he has yet to suit up for a game with the Colts since inking with the team's practice squad in late September, so the move changes little for the team's offense. With Hamler sidelined for some time, Ethan Fernea has been signed to the practice squad.

  • KJ Hamler: Joins practice squad

    Hamler (pectoral/pericarditis) signed with the Colts' practice squad Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Hamler underwent surgery in March to repair a partially torn pectoral before being diagnosed with pericarditis in late July. The latter issue led to him being waived by the Broncos with a non-football illness designation. His addition to the Colts' practice squad indicates his health is back up to par, so he will now look to make an impression at practice.

  • KJ Hamler: Visits with Colts

    Hamler (pectoral/pericarditis) had a visit with the Colts on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Hamler dealt with a pair of health-related issues in the offseason, undergoing surgery in March to repair a partially torn pectoral before being diagnosed with pericarditis in late July. The latter spurred the Broncos to waive him with a non-football illness designation July 31, and one day later coach Sean Payton noted Hamler's recovery should last about six weeks, factoring in time to ramp up his conditioning. It's officially been six weeks since those comments, so it appears teams are starting to inquire about the current state of Hamler's health.

  • KJ Hamler: Could return in six weeks

    Broncos coach Sean Payton said Tuesday that Hamler (pectoral/pericarditis) could return in around six weeks, Nick Kosmider of The Athletic reports.

    It's been a rough offseason for Hamler, who had surgery in March on a partially torn pectoral and more recently was diagnosed with a heart condition called pericarditis. The Broncos waived him Monday with a non-football illness designation, but they apparently intend to bring the 2020 second-round pick back into the fold at some point. With Hamler likely to miss the start of the season and Tim Patrick out for the year with an Achilles tear, rookie second-round pick Marvin Mims has a chance to join Jerry Jeudy and Courtland Sutton in three-wide sets right out of the gate.

  • Broncos' KJ Hamler: Reveals pericarditis diagnosis

    The Broncos intend to waived Hamler (pectoral) on Monday with a non-football illness designation, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

    Hamler missed the entire offseason program following March surgery to repair a partially torn pectoral, which was expected to take 4-to-6 months of recovery. Denver eventually placed him on the active/non-football injury list on the eve of training camp, but he'll instead focus on treatment away from the team to address a diagnosis of pericarditis, which Hamler revealed on his personal Instagram account Monday, per Mike Klis of 9News Denver. With Tim Patrick likely sustaining a torn Achilles at Monday's practice, the Broncos' depth at wide receiver has thinned out behind Jerry Jeudy and Courtland Sutton.

  • KJ Hamler: Officially let go, expected back

    The Broncos officially waived Hamler (pectoral) with a non-football illness designation Monday, Chris Tomasson of The Denver Gazette reports.

    Hamler, who's still recovering from offseason pectoral surgery, revealed on his personal Instagram account Monday that he has also been diagnosed with pericarditis. The Broncos have officially waived him to clear a roster spot, but he's expected to be re-signed by Denver when healthy. If he would've been placed on the reserve/NFI list before the regular season, Hamler would've been forced to miss the entire 2023 campaign, so by letting him go now, Hamler still has a chance to play this season. Per Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, Hamler's condition is expected to keep him out for weeks, not months, so there's optimism he could return relatively early in the campaign.

  • Broncos' KJ Hamler: Lands on non-football injury list

    The Broncos placed Hamler (pectoral) on the active/non-football injury list Sunday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    Hamler tore his pectoral ahead of the team's offseason workouts and was a limited participant during OTAs in May and June minicamp. It's unclear when he'll be available, but he's eligible to practice and/or play at any point during the preseason. When healthy, Hamler will compete for a spot in Denver's wideout corps that also features Jerry Jeudy, Courtland Sutton, Tim Patrick and Marvin Mims.
