Broncos placed DE Jason Hunter on injured reserve with a torn triceps, ending his season.
Hunter was never expected to return after going down mid-way through camp. Hunter appeared in all 16 games last season, but notched only 21 tackles and one sack in a part-time role. The emergence of second-round DL Derek Wolfe should blunt whatever effect the loss of Hunter was going to have on Denver's defensive line.

Updating a previous item, Broncos coach John Fox said DE Jason Hunter will be out four months after undergoing surgery to repair a torn triceps Wednesday.
He won't be playing football this year. Hunter is ineligible for reserve/PUP because he didn't begin camp on active/PUP, and the four-month timetable would have him back in mid-December. Hunter will be placed on injured reserve, ending his season. The Broncos' starting left end job should now come down to incumbent Robert Ayers versus impressive second-round pick Derek Wolfe.

Broncos DE/OLB Jason Hunter, who was struck by a kitchen knife in April, is doing "well," according to his agent.
Hunter needed several stitches in his left upper chest after the knife was thrown at him by his girlfriend, but it appears he'll be fine for camp. Police have ruled that that the knife was hurled "on accident" and Hunter's girlfriend will not be charged. Hunter had 60 tackles and three sacks last season for the Broncos.
