Broncos rookie wide receiver Hunter Sharp is expected to return punts today against the Chargers. The Broncos like what they saw from Sharp, who was on the team's practice squad until Wednesday, in training camp. He returned 10 punts as a senior at Utah State in '15 -- 6.4 per return average -- and had a 96-yard kickoff return for a TD that year. Broncos special teams coordinator Brock Olivo on Sharp this week: "Hunter had a great preseason for us. He is a tough kid, he ran down there and stuck his face in there on kickoff. He made plays all over the field, not only as a returner but as a core special teams player. We're excited about Hunter, no question.''
