Cody Latimer has cleared the concussion protocol and will resume practicing this week.

The second-round pick has barely played on offense this season and would need a Demaryius Thomas or Emmanuel Sanders injury to get into the rotation.

Cody Latimer (ribs) has been ruled out for Week 15.

He'll miss his second straight game. Latimer has played just 19 snaps this year.

The Denver Post's Mike Klis believes it's time for the Broncos to "take the training wheels" off WR Cody Latimer.

Latimer, the 56th pick in May's draft, has been a healthy scratch for much of the season. He's played just 16 offensive snaps and has just one garbage-time nine-yard catch to his name. With this being the most productive rookie receiver class in NFL history, Latimer has seen the least playing time out of all the receivers picked in the first three rounds. Emmanuel Sanders suffered a concussion in Week 11, and Wes Welker looks done. Big, physical Latimer may get some snaps with Peyton Manning against Miami.

Broncos declared WR Cody Latimer, RB Ronnie Hillman, CB Tony Carter, RB Kapri Bibbs, LB Todd Davis, OT Michael Schofield, and TE Virgil Green inactive for Week 11 against the Rams.

Nor surprises. Latimer is back on the sideline in sweats as a healthy scratch. Hillman is expected to miss 2-6 weeks with a foot injury, while the Broncos will roll with C.J. Anderson, Montee Ball, and Juwan Thompson in the backfield.

Broncos rookie WR Cody Latimer recorded his first NFL catch in Week 10 against the Raiders, gaining nine yards.

He got a garbage-time catch with Brock Osweiler in the game. The 56th overall pick in May's draft, Latimer has been a healthy scratch for several games so far this season. The promising 22-year-old still carries plenty of Dynasty value.

Broncos WR Cody Latimer is active for Week 8 against the Chargers.

It's the first time Latimer has been active since Week 1. He's expected to contribute mainly on special teams with LB Steven Johnson (ankle) inactive. Also inactive for the Broncos are RB Montee Ball, RB Kapri Bibbs, CB Omar Bolden, OG Ben Garland, OT Michael Schofield and DT Mitch Unrein. Ball remains week to week.

Broncos declared WR Cody Latimer, RB C.J. Anderson, S David Bruton, LB Lerentee McCray, OG Ben Garland, OT Michael Schofield, and DT Mitch Unrein inactive for Week 5 against the Cardinals.

Second-round pick Latimer has been inactive for each of Denver's first four games. Ronnie Hillman gets the nod over Anderson behind Montee Ball.

Cody Latimer is a healthy scratch for Sunday's Week 3 game at Seattle.

Latimer played zero snaps in Week 1 and was a healthy scratch in Week 2. Now that Wes Welker is off suspension, he's even further off the radar and can be dropped in all re-draft formats. The rest of the Broncos inactives: Tony Carter, Lerentee McCray, Danny Trevathan, Michael Schofield and Mitch Unrein.

Broncos declared WR Cody Latimer, S David Bruton, CB Tony Carter, LB Danny Trevathan, OL Ben Garland, and OL Michael Schofield inactive for Week 2 against the Chiefs.

Latimer is a healthy scratch even with Wes Welker still suspended, suggesting the rookie is far behind Andre Caldwell. Trevathan has a knee injury. Special teamer Bruton has a bum shoulder.

Cody Latimer played zero snaps against the Colts in Week 1.

The Broncos compensated for Wes Welker's absence by kicking Emmanuel Sanders into the slot and using Andre Caldwell (42-of-77 snaps) as an outside receiver when they went three-wide. The Denver Post has reported that Latimer is coming along nicely, but he's not quite up to speed in the no-huddle offense. The second-round rookie is only a deep stash now, especially with Welker having a chance to get his suspension reduced.

Cody Latimer was held without a catch in Week 1 against the Colts.

Latimer didn't see the field, with Andre Caldwell getting all of Wes Welker's snaps. The Broncos used Montee Ball and Julius Thomas in five-wide sets over him. Latimer remains an intriguing WR5/6 stash, but is going to need time to develop.

ESPN's Jeff Legwold says Emmanuel Sanders and rookie Cody Latimer will be the two players charged with filling Wes Welker's shoes.

In the video linked below, Legwold makes no mention of Andre Caldwell. It's somewhat surprising as Caldwell ran as the No. 4 receiver all preseason, clearly ahead of No. 5 Latimer. What's not surprising is the Broncos' plan to move versatile Sanders into the slot, an annually massive role in a Peyton Manning offense. Also not surprising is the emphasis on Latimer, as he's bigger, better, and more talented than Caldwell. "Those are your two primary players as the Broncos replace Welker's production in the offense," says Legwold.

Cody Latimer was reportedly "poised for premium snaps even before Tuesday's (Wes) Welker announcement."

Welker has been suspended for the first four games of the season. Latimer already had a role in red-zone packages, and also has the massive physical edge on Andre Caldwell. We're expecting Emmanuel Sanders to kick into the slot and Caldwell to start outside in the Broncos' three-wide base, but there will be a rotation there and Jacob Tamme will also get some slot looks so Sanders can stay outside. It would take a leap of faith to use Latimer in Week 1 due to usage concerns, but he's a must-hold while we see how the situation shakes out.

Cody Latimer is expected to be used in some of the Broncos' red-zone packages.

Even if Wes Welker (concussion) suits up Week 1, it sounds like the Broncos have a role for Latimer. At 6'2/215 with exceptionally strong hands and a penchant for winning 50/50 balls, he's a logical candidate to do some Eric Decker things near the goal-line. It's still unclear if Latimer is ahead of Andre Caldwell on the depth chart in base packages -- the veteran ran ahead of the second-round rookie in the third preseason game.
