Broncos elevate 2 practice squad players to game day roster for Week 3




 

The Denver Broncos have elevated two players from the practice squad to the game day roster for a Sunday Night Football showdown with the San Francisco 49ers in Week 3.

Denver elevated defensive lineman Jonathan Harris and wide receiver Kendall Hinton, the team announced. Players on the practice squad can be elevated to the game day roster up to three times per season without having to clear waivers to return to the practice squad after the game.

This is the second Hinton has been elevated this year and the first time Harris has been called up for a game.

Hinton was elevated this week after Jerry Jeudy (ribs/shoulder), KJ Hamler (knee/hip) and Tyrie Cleveland (hamstring) were all listed as "questionable" on Friday's injury report.

Broncos defensive linemen Mike Purcell (elbow) and Dre'Mont Jones (neck) are also questionable this week, which likely explains why Harris was elevated for SNF.

Sunday's game will be nationally televised on NBC.
