DENVER (AP) -The Denver Broncos released returner/receiver Domenik Hixon on Tuesday and re-signed wide receiver Brian Clark, who was waived Saturday.
Hixon, a fourth-round pick out of Akron last year who missed his entire rookie season with a broken foot, didn't catch a pass in the first month of the season. He returned seven punts for a 4.6-yard average and 12 kickoffs for a 22.8-yard average.
Hixon became well known following his collision as a ball carrier with Buffalo's Kevin Everett in the season opener that left the Bills tight end with a life-threatening, spinal-cord injury. Everett has since shown signs of recovery.
Clark is a second-year player who signed as a college free agent from North Carolina State. He made the roster this season but was inactive for the first three games before being waived Saturday.
As a rookie, Clark spent the first six weeks on the Broncos practice squad before being promoted last October. He led the team with 23 kickoff returns for 512 yards and a 22.3-yard average.
