The Denver Broncos are re-signing punt returner/wide receiver River Cracraft in order to fill the gap of WR Tim Patrick going on Injured Reserve due to a broken hand suffered in Monday’s defeat according to NFL’s Ian Rapoport.


Patrick will be out for at least 6-8 weeks as he will be eligible to practice in six weeks and can play in Week 9.

Cracraft was recently waived on Sept. 1 to bring in ex-CFL PR/WR Diontae Spencer.
