Broncos' KJ Hamler (hamstring) ruled out Week 5 against New England

Denver Broncos wide receiver KJ Hamler will not play Sunday in the team's Week 5 game against the New England Patriots.

What It Means:

It's been a rough start to Hamler's NFL career, as the rookie wide receiver from Penn State hasn't been able to stave off the injury bug thus far. He has just 6 catches on the year through 3 limited appearances, and now he'll miss his second game of the year in just over a month. Jerry Jeudy and Tim Patrick will lead the wide receiving corps.

Unsurprisingly, New England's secondary has been elite thus far. Through 4 weeks, the Patriots rank second in the NFL in adjusted net expected points allowed per pass play.
