He's been very emotional on the verge of tears, as well as crying some throughout the conference.

Broncos will wear his number on a decal on their helmets

Moment of silence at the Colts game

Will be leaving his locker the way it was throughout the season

Players all gathered today to talk about it

Out of respect to Kenny and his family, no questions answered about the circumstances involving his death

Kenny had been around the facility recently and showed zero signs of depression, was his usual self, eating with the team, etc

Made the decision to get him surgery together and understood reasons to be on IR and was going through rehab just as planned

No indications of trouble to anyone. Smiling, no issues as far as anyone knew.

Team has been very quiet and somber throughout the day. Respectful of one another, eager to support each other and help Kenny's family and son.

No word on any sort of memorial just yet

Difficult to move on, but that's what they have to do. Understands everyone will handle differently, but they are going to continue to get ready for the Colts

Has had professionals talk to the team about the situation and counselors will be on hand throughout process.

Talked briefly about dealing with the death of a teammate in NE, and about how the Broncos have gone through this with DWill and Nash

Woodyard is on, he has been crying before.

Talked about Mckinley having the team over for a cookout, being very respectful of the other players and everybody around him.

Bronco Nation... we lost one of ours this week.
No matter how you look at it, he was a Denver Bronco and with as much love and dedication as most of us have to this team, it sure feels like we all lost a brother as well.

RIP Kenny. You will always be missed, but never forgotten.

So sad. I've seen this before, my brother-in-law's brother killed himself about 3 years ago, and it was the same sort of thing, no signs, seemed happy, no one had a clue. Worst of it is, everyone in that locker room is soul searching, trying to remember if there was anything they should have noticed. People who really want to kill themselves do it. They don't leave notes, they don't half ass it. They just want to leave, end their inner battles. Unfortunately, this leaves tons of un-resolved issues and the beginning of so many inner battles with the loved ones left behind and is why suicide is the most selfish act a person can do. RIP on one hand, but shame on you in the other. I hope no one took this the wrong way, but I have seen suicide affect my family twice, do not have a soft side for it and am dissapointed in McKinley for doing this to his team and family.

You are right.

His child will feel the loss the deepest, and that isnt cool.

Suicide is what it is. It's the persons choice. It is selfish, no doubt, but not up to any of us to place judgement on him.

He made his choice.

I do however feel for that kid. He is the one that all our compassion and sympathy should be extended to. He has been dealt a terrible hand, and will never get over this loss. Here's to hoping he gets proper support and doesn't buy into depression being chemical and popping brain damaging pills.

I hope he is honest in his pain and gets help from an actual therapist that will listen to him and take the time necessary to help him deal with his very real pain.

I'm sorry for that little guy...

Yes. I feel sad for Kenny, and no one can understand the pain he must have been going through to want to kill himself. But for the simple fact he left a child behind.....I'll never understand it.

When you commit suicide, you set off a bomb in your circle of friends and loved ones. You have no idea how it will effect them, and it could end up ruining a significant portion of any or all of their lives.

You certainly invite judgment when you do such a thing to so many people with such a selfish act.

Suicide can be perceived as selfish, but until youve felt suicidal, you have no right to judge another. People who say **** like this do not understand.

It deserves judgment. It deserves scorn. Why? Because it is so unbelievably selfish, and that sort of behavior should be discouraged in the extreme. There's not a worse thing you could do to a person.

Ummmm, not to get too far off track...but this is just asinine logic. I've never felt the need to murder or rape someone....but you bet your *** I will judge those that have murdered and/or raped. And I believe I have every right to. Suicide is no different.....ESPECIALLY with children involved (but even when they're not....there's always family/friends/etc that are affected)

As someone who has been there and still struggles with things, this is completely ignorant. First off, we're all built differently, we are chemically different, we all have different backgrounds that shape us. Certain people, like myself, are susceptible to feeling lost and filled with pain. You get stuck in a moment and lose sight of the world. Its not fun and completely unrelatable to people who have never been there. So keep your ****ty opinions to yourself. Of course it should be discouraged, but when you shoot your ****ing self in the head, thats not a cry for help. That's someone in such deep pain you cannot imagine. And its not a choice he's making with sane mind, he's mentally ill.

Yes, its sad, but do not compare suicide with rape and murder.
