Report: Former Penn State star WR sustains serious knee injury
Former Penn State star DaeSean Hamilton has reportedly sustained a serious knee injury, right on the heels of a potential trade coming together for the wide receiver.
Earlier in the week, it was reported that the Denver Broncos were planning to waive Hamilton, a former fourth-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. Then, it appeared that Denver was close to putting a trade together to deal Hamilton.
Unfortunately, all of that appears to be on hold with Taylor Bisciotti of the NFL Network and Ian Rapoport reporting that Hamilton has sustained a torn ACL Friday afternoon.

According to Rapoport, Hamilton tore his ACL while training away from Denver’s facility.
#Broncos WR DaeSean Hamilton was likely to be traded, rather than waived. But he tore his ACL training away from the facility. Now, everything is on hold as the team gets more info.

Hamilton played the last three seasons for Denver but was never able to carve out a large role within the Broncos offense. He compiled 81 catches for 833 yards and five touchdowns.
Hamilton played for the Nittany Lions from 2014-17 and finished near the top of Penn State’s all-time marks with 2,842 yards receiving and 18 touchdowns. Hopefully he is able to recover and rehab quickly from this setback.
