Also on Monday, the Broncos learned that Omar Bolden's return from a hamstring injury was promising but short-lived, according to The Denver Post.

The Broncos' safety and leading punt-returner ran back a punt 42 yards in the first quarter of Denver's divisional playoff victory over the Steelers on Sunday. But about seven minutes later, on a Broncos punt, Bolden went down with a right knee injury and had to be helped off the field. Bolden never returned and said after that doctors told him it was a ligament issue and that his knee was "loose."

Bolden had a magnetic resonance imaging scan Monday morning that revealed a a Grade 2 posterior cruciate ligament sprain that will not require surgery but will keep him out of the rest of the postseason.
