Josina Anderson of FOX 31 in Denver reports that Broncos receiver Kenny McKinley has been found dead, apparently due to a suicide.
The 23-year-old McKinley, a fifth-round pick in 2009 from South Carolina, appeared in eight games last season before landing on injured reserve. He was again placed on injured reserve to start the 2010 season.
At South Carolina, McKinley caught 207 passes, and he generated more than 2,700 receiving yards.
Our thoughts and condolences go out to McKinley’s family, teammates, and friends, and to the entire Broncos organization.
