The Denver Broncos came into the season with the highest of hopes, and things have gone just about as bad as you could have imagined. Expected to be a Super Bowl contender, the Broncos sit at 3-8 and in last place in the AFC West.

K.J. Hamler Injury Update

While poor play on offense has contributed to the Broncos' failures this season, injuries sure have been a major contributor as well. On Saturday, the Broncos placed wideout K.J. Hamler on IR after he suffered a setback to his hamstring injury.

This gives Denver a NFL-high 15 players on IR, along with the most total money on the salary cap on IR.

Hamler isn't the only Broncos wideout to deal with injuries this year. They lost Tim Patrick for the season earlier, and Jerry Jeudy has had his fair share of issues throughout the season.

It seems this season is a lost one for Denver, despite the high expectations.

Denver is preparing for a Week 13 matchup against the Baltimore Ravens, where the Broncos are a 9.5-point road underdog, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
