Hemingway was officially claimed by the Panthers on Tuesday. Hemingway was cut by the Broncos on Monday but quickly found a new team. The South Carolina State product appeared in five games with the Broncos last season, playing 74 snaps on special teams. He will hope to secure a roster spot with a loaded depth chart in Carolina.
Hemingway was cut by the Broncos on Monday, Zac Stevens of BSNDenver.com reports. Hemingway appeared in five games with the Broncos last season, playing 74 snaps on special teams. The 2016 sixth-round pick will now look to earn a depth role elsewhere in the league.
Hemingway was signed to the Broncos' 53-man roster from the practice squad Tuesday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports. Hemingway hasn't seen a regular-season snap in his career and spent the season with the Broncos' practice squad before he was promoted. Denver announced Monday that fellow tight end Jeff Heuerman (ribs) will miss the rest of the season, so Hemingway received a promotion to the active roster.
Hemingway (leg) has been a full participant in OTAs, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports. Hemingway broke his leg in the preseason last year, ending his rookie season prematurely. Now that he's a full go once again he'll look to earn a roster spot as a backup tight end to Tyler Higbee and as a special teams contributor.
Hemingway (leg) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Jamie Han of the Rams' official site reports. Hemingway fractured his fibula in the third preseason game and is set to miss about 8-10 weeks. He's unlikely to come off IR until season's end.
