Hinton will finish the season with his third absence in four games. The 25-year-old wide receiver will have plenty of time to heal up in the offseason after totaling 24 catches for 311 yards on 33 targets across 12 games in his third pro campaign.

Missing for another practice
Hinton (hamstring) won't participate in practice Thursday, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.
In his return from a two-game absence from a hamstring injury this past Sunday, Hinton handled a 47 percent snap share and failed to haul in either of his two targets in Denver's 27-24 loss to Kansas City. Though the Broncos didn't suggest Hinton experienced any sort of setback in Week 17, his absence from the team's first two Week 18 practices perhaps suggests otherwise. Whatever the case, Hinton will likely need to practice in some fashion Friday in order to have a legitimate chance at suiting up this weekend against the Chargers.
Hinton (hamstring) isn't practicing Wednesday, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.
Hinton returned from a two-game absence in Sunday's 27-24 loss to Kansas City, finishing without a catch on two targets while playing 33 of 70 offensive snaps as the Broncos' No. 3 receiver. It's unclear if he had a setback with the hamstring or if he's simply being rested Wednesday as the Broncos prepare for their season finale Sunday against the Chargers.
Held catchless in loss
Hinton failed to catch either of his two targets in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Chiefs. He added one rush for zero yards.
Hinton operated as the Broncos' No. 3 receiver, playing on 33 of Denver's 70 offensive snaps behind Jerry Jeudy (62) and Courtland Sutton (57). In 12 games played, the second-year wideout has recorded 24 total catches for 311 yards. The Broncos' struggles on offense and his lack of consistent opportunities this season played a significant role in his underwhelming 2022 campaign. Hinton will look to bounce back and end the year on a positive note when the Broncos host the Chargers in Week 18.
Active for Week 17
Hinton (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against Kansas City, Nick Kosmider of The Athletic reports.
Hinton suits up for the first time since Week 14, which was Denver's first matchup with the Chiefs. He's been second or even first option at wide receiver at times this season, but Hinton likely will be the No. 3 receiver Sunday with both Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy (ankle) active. Freddie Swain is a healthy scratch after handling the No. 3 role last week.
Questionable for Week 17
Hinton (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.
Hinton's hoping to make his return following a two-game absence. Fellow wide receiver Jerry Jeudy (ankle) is also questionable while Courtland Sutton (hamstring) is trending toward playing. If all three suit up, Hinton will likely see limited volume in the No. 3 wide receiver role.
Practices in limited fashion
Hinton (hamstring) will be a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com reports.
After not practicing in any capacity the past two weeks while sitting out a win over the Cardinals and a loss to the Rams, Hinton has now turned in a pair of limited practices to begin Week 17 prep. Fellow receivers Courtland Sutton (hamstring) and Jerry Jeudy (ankle) have joined Hinton as limited participants in both of the Broncos' first two practices of the week, but since those two played in the Christmas Day loss to Los Angeles, they both appear to be good bets to suit up Sunday in Kansas City. Hinton, on the other hand, may need to graduate to full participation at Friday's practice to prove his injury is behind him and guarantee his availability for Sunday.
