A couple reported he came into their suburban home uninvited after 1 a.m. Tuesday and sat down on their couch "mumbling incoherently.'' The records say the man chased the intruder out, striking him in the back with a vacuum tube.

Kelly, the nephew of Buffalo Bills Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly, appeared in Arapahoe County Court Wednesday, where a court date of Nov. 8 was set for filing charges.

The Broncos' move leaves third-year pro Kevin Hogan as backup QB.
