Date: Team: Pos:

Cody Latimer (concussion) is listed as probable for Week 16.

Latimer has been cleared to return, but remains behind Andre Caldwell on the depth chart. He would only have a role if Emmanuel Sanders (questionable, illness) is held out this week.
Dec 20 - 3:43 PM

Emmanuel Sanders (illness) is listed as questionable for Week 16.

Sanders missed practice on Saturday with flu-like symptoms. The Broncos don’t play until Monday night, so he'll have two days to get healthy. Sanders will be a WR2 for the fantasy finals.
Dec 20 - 3:31 PM

Peyton Manning (thigh) is listed a questionable for Monday night's matchup with the Bengals.

Manning was limited on Friday and Saturday, but is fully expected to start on Monday night. Manning is Rotoworld's No. 6 quarterback for Week 16.
Dec 20 - 1:59 PM

Emmanuel Sanders missed Broncos' practice on Saturday with flu-like symptoms.

Sanders was reportedly feeling under the weather on Friday and will be given Saturday off to rest. The Denver Post's Troy Renck said there is "no reason to think he won't play." With Peyton Manning struggling, Sanders has seen his production tail off in the last two games. Under the weather and against a solid Bengals secondary, Sanders will be a risky WR2 for the fantasy championships.
Dec 20 - 1:11 PM

Juwan Thompson (hip, knee) returned to Broncos practice on Friday.

The Broncos play Monday night, so they won't announce injury statuses until Saturday. But Thompson looks on track to back up C.J. Anderson against the Bengals. His workload is unclear with Ronnie Hillman possibly returning.
Dec 19 - 1:22 PM

Peyton Manning (thigh) returned to Broncos practice on Friday, getting in a limited session.

Dec 19 - 1:12 PM

Ronnie Hillman (foot) was limited in Thursday's practice.

Hillman remains day to day. Juwan Thompson (hip, knee) sat out Thursday's practice, leaving C.J. Anderson's Week 16 backup up in the air.
Dec 18 - 5:47 PM

Juwan Thompson (hip, knee) was sidelined Thursday.

Thompson's status for Monday Night Football appears uncertain. If he can't go, Ronnie Hillman (foot) may finally be ready to return as C.J. Anderson's backup.
Dec 18 - 5:46 PM

Demaryius Thomas (ankle) is practicing in full for Week 16.

Thomas avoided setbacks with his ankle in Week 15, and is locked and loaded as a WR1 for the fantasy finals.
Dec 18 - 4:16 PM

Julius Thomas (ankle) is practicing in full for Week 16.

It's an upgrade on Week 15, where Orange Julius began the week as "limited." The Broncos have hoodwinked fantasy owners in back-to-back games with Thomas' health, but he finally, truly appears ready to be full go. Thomas is a mid-range TE1 for the fantasy finals.
Dec 18 - 4:14 PM

Peyton Manning (thigh) was given a day of rest on Thursday.

Manning was officially "limited" even though he spent the day getting treatment. Twitter panic is already ensuing, but Manning's Week 16 status is in zero doubt. Today is the Broncos' first practice of the week since they're playing on Monday Night Football. Manning will be back for Friday's session, and can confidently be fired up as a QB1 for the fantasy finals.
Dec 18 - 1:34 PM

Broncos re-signed TE Dominique Jones.

We don't think this has anything to do with the status of Julius Thomas' ankle. It's likely a special teams move as the Broncos have been hit by injuries at linebacker this week.
Dec 18 - 10:46 AM

The Denver Post's Mike Klis believes Peyton Manning will play out his contract with the Broncos.

This would be welcome news for Dynasty owners of Peyton, Demaryius Thomas, and Emmanuel Sanders. Manning is under contract through 2016 with base salaries of $19 million the next two seasons. Although his play has begun to tail off toward the end of the past two years, Peyton has remained an "elite" quarterback in favorable weather. Manning is currently on pace for 42 touchdowns and 4,735 yards, both big drop-offs from last year's stats (55, 5,477) but still top-shelf fantasy QB1 numbers.

The Broncos hope to have Ronnie Hillman (foot) back "if not this week at Cincinnati then in the season finale."

The Broncos could put Hillman to use as a complement to C.J. Anderson, who's averaged an unruly 27.25 carries per game over the past month. Shifty and quick, Hillman would make more sense as a true change-of-pace than Juwan Thompson, who is a big back like Anderson. Even if Hillman plays Monday night at Cincinnati, it would be a surprise if he handled more than 7-9 touches.

Broncos signed S Josh Bush off their practice squad.

After losing backup safety and special teamer Quinton Carter to I.R. last week, Bush gets the call. He'll fill the exact same role as Carter. Bush appeared in 35 games for the Jets across the 2012-2014 seasons.
