Denver Broncos punter Marquette King was initially doubtful for Sunday’s game. He was then placed on injured reserve by the team on Saturday morning.
King is battling a thigh injury. Since he is not able to play for the foreseeable future, the team promoted Colby Wadman from the practice squad.
He is annually one of the best punters in the league since 2013. There is a chance that he could return to the team at a later date should his thigh be healthy enough for him to play.
King, who began his career with the Oakland Raiders, is in his first-season with the Denver Broncos. He signed a three-year, $7 million deal with the team in the offseason.
He has made 20 punts this season for 881 yards. None of his punts have been blocked.
According to 9News’ Mike Klis, the team will be releasing King in the near future when he returns from his injured reserve stint. In likely what was his final game with the team on Monday Night Football against the Kansas City Chiefs, he had just three punts.
Yet, he averaged 41.0 yards per punt.
Wadman will be making his NFL debut against the New York Jets on Sunday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
