  • Broncos' Kendall Hinton: Plays two offensive snaps

    Hinton failed to record a single target in Sunday's 30-13 loss to the Eagles.

    Hinton took a backseat to the healthy pass catchers in the Broncos' offense, as the wideout played on just two offensive snaps in the contest. Barring an injury, Hinton will likely be an afterthought going forward, keeping the 24-year-old far off the fantasy radar as the Broncos head into their Week 11 bye.

  • Broncos' Kendall Hinton: Good to go

    Hinton (shoulder) is not listed on the Broncos' injury report ahead of Sunday's contest against the Eagles, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

    Hinton practiced in limited fashion Wednesday, but it looks like the team was just exercising caution. Barring any setbacks, look for him to assume his usual role as the team's No. 4 wideout.

  • Broncos' Kendall Hinton: Practices limited Wednesday

    Hinton (shoulder) practiced in a limited capacity for the Broncos on Wednesday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

    While it's uncertain when the receiver injured his shoulder, Hinton's injury isn't considered to be serious. If Hinton is unable to play against the Eagles in Week 10, expect Tyrie Cleveland to fill in as Teddy Bridgewater's fourth receiving option.

  • Broncos' Kendall Hinton: Catches one pass

    Hinton secured his lone target for 40 yards in Sunday's 30-16 win over the Cowboys.

    Hinton played on just 28 percent of the Broncos' offensive snaps, serving in a depth role behind Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy and Tim Patrick. Teddy Bridgewater's 40-yard connection with Hinton was the second-longest play of the game for Denver and set up an eventual rushing touchdown for Bridgewater. Hinton is developing into a solid receiver, but his limited snap share in Denver's offense caps his fantasy value ahead of a Week 10 tilt against Philadelphia.

  • Broncos' Kendall Hinton: Plays two offensive snaps

    Hinton was not targeted in Sunday's 17-10 win over Washington.

    Hinton played just two of Denver's 53 offensive snaps in Week 8, as the return of Jerry Jeudy from injured reserve predictably forced Hinton down the depth chart. Barring another injury to a fellow wideout, the 24-year-old will fill a depth role role for the Broncos.

  • Broncos' Kendall Hinton: Quiet in loss

    Hinton caught both of his targets for 15 yards in Thursday's 17-14 loss to the Browns.

    Hinton played on just 48 percent of the Broncos' offensive snaps Thursday, down from 63 percent in Week 6. Denver trailed Cleveland for the majority of the contest, yet Hinton could not get in on much of the action in the passing game. The 24-year-old is likely to see his involvement on offense take a significant dip with fellow wideout Jerry Jeudy set to make his return from an ankle injury in Week 8. Hinton will remain off the fantasy radar when the Broncos host Washington on Oct. 31.

  • Broncos' Kendall Hinton: Catches five passes

    Hinton caught all five of his targets for 37 yards in Sunday's 34-24 loss to the Raiders.

    Hinton had a relatively quiet outing on a day when the Broncos trailed the Raiders for the majority of the contest. The 24-year-old remained the third wideout in the pecking order behind Courtland Sutton and Tim Patrick, playing on 63 percent of Denver's offensive snaps. With fellow receiver Jerry Jeudy (ankle) set to make his return to the field in the near future, Hinton's window for fantasy production may be coming to an end soon. Next up for the Broncos is a matchup with the Browns on Thursday night.

  • Broncos' Kendall Hinton: Hits pay dirt in loss

    Hinton secured two of his three targets for 25 yards and one touchdown in Sunday's 27-19 loss to the Steelers.

    Hinton played on 65 percent of Denver's offensive snaps Sunday, his highest mark of the season. The wideout's two-yard touchdown grab was his first of the 2021 campaign. The uptick in Hinton's snaps is a direct result of the injury issues plaguing the Broncos' receiving corps, headlined by Jerry Jeudy (ankle) and KJ Hamler (knee). With Jeudy scheduled to make his return from an ankle injury in the coming weeks, Hinton likely will see a reduction in his playing time. The 24-year-old will be tough to trust going forward based on his sporadic usage. If Jeudy does not return Week 7, it's possible that Hinton could have similar involvement in the Broncos' aerial attack when the team hosts the Raiders.

  • Broncos' Kendall Hinton: Catches one pass

    Hinton caught one of three targets for 13 yards in Sunday's 23-7 loss to the Ravens.

    Hinton, like the rest of the Broncos offense, had a tough time getting things going in Week 4, particularly after Teddy Bridgewater (concussion) left the game. Since being signed to Denver's active roster after Jerry Jeudy was placed on IR with an ankle injury, Hinton has not earned much of a role. He did, however, see his snap share on offense jump to 43 percent in Week 4 after playing on only seven percent and six percent of offensive snaps in Weeks 2 and 3, respectively. With injuries to Jeudy, KJ Hamler (knee) and now Diontae Spencer (chest), Hinton may be called upon to take on more of a role going forward. He will look to make the most of any added opportunities when the Broncos travel to Pittsburgh on Oct. 10.

  • Broncos' Kendall Hinton: Elevated to active roster

    The Broncos signed Hinton from their practice squad Tuesday, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.

    Hinton had an impressive training camp, but he didn't make the initial 53-man roster and was later signed to the practice squad. The 24-year-old is best known for stepping in as the signal-caller for the Broncos last season after their entire quarterbacks' room landed in COVID-19 protocols. Hinton will replace Jerry Jeudy (ankle), who was placed on IR, on Denver's active roster.

  • Kendall Hinton: Signed to practice squad

    Hinton was signed to Denver's practice squad Wednesday, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

    After waiving Hinton on Monday, the Broncos signed the wideout to their practice squad following an impressive training camp. The 24-year-old was praised for his improvements in the offseason, but it wasn't enough for him to make the active roster. Hinton notably stepped in as Denver's signal-caller for a game during the 2020 season when all of the team's quarterbacks landed in the COVID-19 protocol. The wide receiver's best chance of being called up to the active roster would be if injuries begin to mount among Denver's pass catchers.

  • Kendall Hinton: Cut loose Monday

    The Broncos waived Hinton on Monday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

    Hinton was memorably called up from the practice squad last season to play quarterback -- a position he hadn't played since college -- after all of Denver's signal-callers landed in COVID-19 protocol. The Wake Forest product completed just one of nine passes for 13 yards and two interceptions. The 24-year-old reportedly impressed as a receiver during OTAs and training camp, but it wasn't enough to crack a deep wideout depth chart.
