#NYJvsDEN injury updates: Hamler, Risner, Glasgow sidelined after injuries during Jets game


Please see below for a timeline of the injury updates from throughout the Broncos' Week 3 game against the Jets.

3:10 p.m. MT: Wide receiver KJ Hamler suffered a knee injury late in the second quarter after going up for a pass near the sideline and colliding with Jets defenders in midair. He received medical evaluation from the training staff before being helped off the field and to the locker room. His return is questionable, the team announced.

3:40 p.m. MT: Hamler has been downgraded to out.

3:44 p.m. MT: Linebacker Jonas Griffith is out after suffering a hamstring injury.

3:58 p.m. MT: Right guard Graham Glasgow is questionable to return after suffering a knee injury in the third quarter.

4:05 p.m. MT: Left guard Dalton Risner is also questionable to return with a foot injury. The Broncos replaced Risner and Glasgow on offense with rookie Quinn Meinerz and second-year player Netane Muti, respectively.

4:15 p.m. MT: Risner has been downgraded to out.

POSTGAME: Head Coach Vic Fangio was unable to add clarity to the injury statuses after the game given their recency, but he said that the injured players would soon receive MRIs.

"I don't have a lot of details on any of them at this point," Fangio said. "Obviously, they're going to get imaged here as soon as they can, and we should know more as the week goes on."

Later, tackle Garett Bolles was asked about the impact that losing Glasgow and Bolles could have and how the younger linemen performed in their stead.

"Man, you know I love Graham, I love Dalton," tackle Garett Bolles said. "I hope they heal quickly. They're a big piece of this offensive line, and without them it's going to be tough, but I know Muti and Meinerz did a phenomenal job. They came in for that last quarter and a half and provided ways and created run lanes to get us down the stretch to close this thing out. And I couldn't be more proud. You know, I felt like when those guys went down I had to step up, put the young guys in the middle. I look to [T] Bobby [Massie] and say, 'Hey man, we're the oldest guys, we've got to hold this down.' So, I love them dearly. I know they're going to heal quickly, but I know that we have so much depth in the O-line that I'm very grateful. And I know that, that 'next man up' mentality is what we need to get depth and continue to let this train keep rolling."
