Denver Broncos wide receiver Kenny McKinley was found dead in his apartment yesterday in an apparent suicide.
Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson said authorities were called to McKinley’s apartment in Centennial at 3:35 p.m. local time and found his body in the second-floor master bedroom. He said detectives believe McKinley, 23, was killed by a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Robinson said authorities were called by a female friend of McKinley’s who discovered the body after returning from an errand with his child. The sheriff declined to say if authorities found a suicide note.
Revis strains hamstring
That sexy matchup pitting Darrelle Revis against Brandon Marshall may have to wait.
Revis had an MRI yesterday that revealed a strained left hamstring, something that could sideline him 1-2 weeks. Even though the Jets’ All-Pro cornerback hasn’t been ruled out for Sunday night’s AFC East contest against the Dolphins, there’s a good possibility he may miss his first game — ever.
"Right now, it’s about getting back to 100 percent," Revis said. "That’s the main goal. I’m not going to touch the field unless I’m 100 percent. … If I can play Sunday, I will be out there on Sunday. If I’m doubtful, I’m doubtful. If I can’t, I won’t be out there."
Coach says Mathews sore
Chargers running back Ryan Mathews sprained his right ankle in the second quarter and sat out the rest of the game. Mathews wanted to return, but coach Norv Turner kept him out as a precaution.
Yesterday, Turner said only that Mathews was sore. The Chargers refuse to give out more injury information than they have to.
Harvin has hip strain
An MRI yesterday showed no serious damage in Percy Harvin’s right hip. Coach Brad Childress classified Harvin’s injury as a hip strain. He said it’s too early to determine whether the second-year wide receiver will play Sunday against the Detroit Lions.
