The Denver Broncos starting left guard Russ Hochstein and returner Kenny McKinley were done for the season. After both suffered injuries in last week’s game at Philadelphia against the Eagles, they were placed on the injured reserve and will not be available in their team’s NFL jerseys for the season finale.
Broncos Coach Josh McDaniels announced Monday that Hochstein and McKinley will be placed on injured reserve. McKinley hurt his knee on a kickoff return in the first quarter, while Hochstein apparently injured his knee on a play in the second half.
Hochstein got his starting job on Nov. 15 as the team was trying to bolster a struggling offense before a game against the Washington Redskins. The previous starter Ben Hamliton who was supplanted by Hochstein, now have the chance to get his starting job back.
