Broncos declared WR Emmanuel Sanders, WR Cody Latimer, RB Jamaal Charles, CB Michael Hunter, OG J.J. Dielman, OT Donald Stephenson and DE Zach Kerr inactive for Week 17 against the Chiefs.
Sanders heads into the offseason having missed the final two games with an ankle issue. He finishes his age-30 campaign with just 47 catches for 555 yards and two touchdowns. The down year snaps a string of three-straight 1K campaigns. Although the Broncos have some rebuilding to do, Sanders should be back at his scheduled $8.15 million salary next season. He won't return to WR2 status without major improvement under center. Sun, Dec 31, 2017 03:03:00 PM

Date:

Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 17.

This isn't a surprise after Sanders missed practice all week. The Broncos will also be without Cody Latimer (thigh) Sunday. Demaryius Thomas, Bennie Fowler and Jordan Taylor will be Denver's top-three wideouts against the Chiefs.

Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

Sanders hasn't seen the field since aggravating an ankle injury in Week 15. He's not expected to play in Sunday's finale. This will end Sanders' streak of three consecutive 1,000-yard seasons. Unless the Broncos make a concerted effort to upgrade at quarterback this offseason, Sanders will be hard to trust in fantasy next year.

Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) is not practicing Wednesday.

Coach Vance Joseph called Sanders day to day on Tuesday after the receiver sat out Week 16. Sanders hasn't been 100 percent healthy for weeks.

Broncos coach Vance Joseph said Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) is day-to-day.

Sanders is "still really sore" according to the coach, and backup Cody Latimer is in the same boat with his thigh injury. With Paxton Lynch set to start, the Broncos need a real receiver corps to properly evaluate his progress, but it does not sound like Sanders is a lock to play. Brock Osweiler leaned heavily on the running backs in the passing game with Sanders sidelined last week.

Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) has been downgraded to "out" for Week 16.

As has Cody Latimer (thigh), meaning the Broncos will be extremely thin at receiver in Washington. The fact that Sanders couldn't get healthy 10 days after going down bodes poorly for his Week 17 status. Whether it's Brock Osweiler or Paxton Lynch under center — most signs suggest it will be Osweiler — the Broncos' quarterback will have precious few weapons. Bennie Fowler should start opposite Demaryius Thomas.

9 Denver's Mike Klis considers Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) on the "doubtful side of questionable" to play in Week 16.

Sanders was "sore" on Thursday and remained "sore" on Friday, and beat writers who watched Friday's practice noted that Sanders looked very limited. If Sanders can't play against the Redskins, Demaryius Thomas will offer target monster potential against a slumping Washington secondary.
Fri, Dec 22, 2017 01:55:00 PM

Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) returned to practice Friday, but he "appeared to be somewhat limited."

Sanders sat out Wednesday and Thursday and has been battling injuries for the better part of a month. He continues to play through the issue but is not an exciting fantasy play whatsoever with whichever QB starts for Denver.
Fri, Dec 22, 2017 12:41:00 PM

Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) remained sidelined Thursday.

Sanders is dealing with a bone bruise. He's now on the wrong side of questionable for Week 16, but a Friday return to practice would put him on track to play.
Thu, Dec 21, 2017 02:17:00 PM

Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

Sanders picked up a bone bruise last Thursday against the Colts. It seems unlikely the injury prevents him from playing on Sunday, but it would be promising if he got in some practice reps this week. Cody Latimer will be an interesting DFS option if Sanders is forced to sit.

Emmanuel Sanders is day to day with a bruised right ankle.

He suffered the bone bruise late in Thursday's win over Indianapolis. Sanders finished the night with 68 yards, which is more than he had in his previous four games combined. He'll have nine days to get ready for Week 16 against Washington.

Emmanuel Sanders was forced from Thursday's game against the Colts with a right ankle injury, and will not return.

Sanders injured his ankle early on, tried to gut through it, and was eventually ruled out. It's the same ankle Sanders hurt in Week 6, costing him two games. With fill-in QB Brock Osweiler playing surprisingly well, Sanders was having a nice night, catching 7-of-9 targets for 68 yards. With 10 days to heal up for Week 16, it's possible Sanders doesn't miss any additional time.

Emmanuel Sanders delivered one catch for 16 yards on four targets Sunday in the Broncos’ Week 14 win over the Jets.

Sanders was shut out in the first half and obviously didn’t move the needle much after halftime, securing his lone catch during a 13-play, 68-yard touchdown drive in the third quarter. He’s now been held under 20 yards in each of his last four games. Sanders has a glorious matchup waiting for him against the Colts on Thursday night, though given his recent struggles, it’s hard to imagine him taking advantage of it.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms Emmanuel Sanders (questionable, ankle) will play Week 14 against the Jets.

A lingering ankle injury has cost Sanders some practice reps recently, but he was always expected to play this week. With Denver's offense in complete disarray, he won't be more than a last-gasp WR3/4 for the first week of the fantasy playoffs.

Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) is questionable for Week 14 against the Jets.

Sanders sat out Wednesday's practice but returned to a full session on Thursday. He'll be fine to play Sunday, though it will be difficult to trust him coming off an 11-yard game against the Dolphins in Week 13. Sanders has been held under 20 yards in three straight games and hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 2.
