Broncos place WR KJ Hamler, LB Jonas Griffith on IR

The Denver Broncos placed wide receiver KJ Hamler and inside linebacker Jonas Griffith on injured reserve Tuesday.

The move to injured reserve was expected for Hamler, who was not expected to play again this season after he sustained a torn ACL in the second quarter of the Broncos’ 26-0 home victory against the New York Jets on Sunday.

Hamler, 22, made one catch for 28 yards against the Jets. He had five catches for 74 yards and no touchdowns in three games this season.

A 2020 second-round pick, Hamler started four of his 13 games as a rookie and finished with 30 receptions for 381 yards and three scores. He also rushed nine times for 40 yards.

Griffith, 24, sustained an injured hamstring on Sunday. He has played on 35 special teams snaps this season.

Also on Tuesday, the Broncos elevated quarterback Brett Rypien from their practice squad and signed wide receiver David Moore off the Las Vegas Raiders’ practice squad.

Rypien, 25, will serve as the third-string quarterback behind Teddy Bridgewater and Drew Lock. He completed 27 of 40 passes for 295 yards with two touchdowns and four interceptions in three games last season with the Broncos.

Moore, 26, has recorded 78 receptions for 1,163 yards with 13 touchdowns in 47 career games with the Seattle Seahawks.
