Russ Hochstein and Kenny McKinley to IR

Josh McDaniels announced Monday that Hochstein and McKinley will be placed on injured reserve. Both players hurt their knees against Philadelphia. Ben Hamilton will most likely get his old job back filling in for Hochstein. But it is not clear who will be doing kickoff returns for the Broncos after McKinley's injury. Last week Buckhalter filled in before being injured himself. Rookie Alphonso Smith, and Eddie Royal are very capable of returning, star receiver Brandon Marshall also has a little experience.

This is sad news, but last week Ben Hamilton looked much better than he did earlier in the year, and the Broncos have many options in the return game.
