Broncos: No signs player was suicidal

ENGLEWOOD | Denver Broncos coach Josh McDaniels said in a tearful news conference Tuesday that nobody in the organization saw any hint that wide receiver Kenny McKinley was suicidal before he took his own life.

The Arapahoe County sheriff said the second-year pro died of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound at his home near the Broncos‘ headquarters on Monday afternoon.

The team gathered Tuesday morning and met with grief counselors. Linebacker Wesley Woodyard said McKinley was his usual joking and jovial self in the weeks leading up to his death.

The head coach said the team plans to observe a moment of silence Sunday before its game against Indianapolis and players will wear decals on their helmets to remember McKinley.
