ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Jordan Norwood's season-ending knee injury jumbled the Denver Broncos' search for Trindon Holliday's replacement on punt returns and dented the team's depth at wide receiver.

The replacement could be undrafted rookie Isaiah Burse, who was listed behind Wes Welker and Norwood on the first depth chart of the preseason.

Given his concussion history, Welker was expected to field punts whenever the Broncos were backed up deep or the game was close with Norwood taking the field whenever there was a chance to have a big return.

With Welker missing two days of joint practices with the Houston Texans this week for personal reasons, there's a strong possibility Burse will get a long look Saturday night when the teams face each other in a preseason game.
