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.
Dec 15 - 2:38 PM

Cody Latimer caught 3-of-4 targets for 60 yards and a touchdown in the Broncos' Week 15 win over the Colts.

With Emmanuel Sanders battling an ankle injury, Latimer got a little more run than usual. His touchdown — a 22-yarder he caught against sticky coverage in the end zone — was his second in four weeks, and third of the season.
Dec 14 - 11:53 PM

Devontae Booker rushed 11 times for 39 yards in the Broncos' Week 15 win over the Colts, adding a 10-yard reception.

Booker was lucky to get the touches and yards he did, as C.J. Anderson was running hot. Once again the Broncos' clear No. 2 back, Booker won't be a fantasy consideration for championship week in Week 16.
Dec 14 - 11:51 PM

Demaryius Thomas caught 5-of-8 targets for 69 yards in the Broncos' Week 15 win over the Colts.

With Brock Osweiler — long story — spreading the ball around and C.J. Anderson churning out yards on the ground, Thomas was one of three Broncos pass catchers to post more than 60 but fewer than 70 yards. Thomas has cleared 75 yards just once in his past nine games. With Osweiler likely to be under center for Week 16 against the Redskins, Thomas will be an uninspiring WR2.
Dec 14 - 11:49 PM

C.J. Anderson rushed 30 times for 158 yards in the Broncos' Week 15 win over the Colts.

Anderson was held without a catch on one target in the passing game. The 158 yards rushing were the third most of his career. Anderson was shedding an indifferent Colts defense's tackles all night long. Clearly re-established as the Broncos' lead back, Anderson has a whopping 73 touches over his past three games. Operating on 10 days' rest, he will be a workload-based RB2 against the Redskins in Week 16.
Dec 14 - 11:29 PM

Brock Osweiler completed 12-of-17 passes for 194 yards and two touchdowns in the Broncos' 25-13, Week 15 win over the Colts, adding three rushes for 17 yards and an additional score.

Trevor Siemian was knocked out with a season-ending shoulder injury on the Broncos' second drive. Osweiler checked in and promptly balled, dropping dimes and galloping like a gazelle on his 18-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. 54 of his yards and one of his scores came on an absolute seed to TE Jeff Heuerman in the third quarter (it was a weird night). Osweiler's other touchdown was a gutsy 22-yarder to a tightly-covered Cody Latimer (again, weird night). With Paxton Lynch's (high-ankle sprain) health status unknown, there's a good chance Osweiler is under center for Week 16 against the Redskins.

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.

Broncos QB Trevor Siemian has been diagnosed with a dislocated left shoulder and is done for the season.

A Friday MRI is expected to confirm the diagnosis. It's far from surprising after Siemian got crunched in ugly fashion of the first quarter of Thursday's game against the Colts. With only two games remaining, he will soon be placed on injured reserve. Decent when he was managed and manipulated by coach Gary Kubiak in 2016, Siemian looked like one of the worst quarterbacks in the league this season. Perhaps he will keep his roster spot for 2018, but it's been pretty clearly determined he's not the Broncos' quarterback of the future.

Trevor Siemian was forced from Thursday's game against the Colts with a left shoulder injury.

Siemian was announced as "questionable" to return, but that won't be happening. Siemian got his non-throwing shoulder blown up on the Broncos' second drive. He came off the field with his arm dangling, and was quickly carted to the locker room. It's going to be the Brock Osweiler show for the final three quarters on Thursday.
Dec 14 - 8:57 PM

Broncos NT Domata Peko (knee) is acitve for Week 15 against the Colts.

Peko was sidelined the past two weeks. Inactive for the Broncos are QB Paxton Lynch, OLB DeMarcus Walker, WR Isaiah McKenzie, CB Brendan Langley, RB De'Angelo Henderson, TE Matt LaCosse and OL Cyrus Kouandjio.
Dec 14 - 7:04 PM

Broncos placed S Justin Simmons on injured reserve with an ankle injury, ending his season.

The Broncos let T.J. Ward go at the end of the preseason in order to get Simmons in the lineup as a full-time player. He has received strong marks for his run defense from Pro Football Focus and is the site's No. 34 overall safety out of 86 qualifiers. Simmons has been a problem in pass coverage.
Dec 13 - 12:25 PM

Broncos NT Domata Peko (knee) is expected to return for Week 15 against the Colts.

Peko missed the Broncos' past two games. Having a solid year as a run-stuffer, Peko's return will provide a boost for the Broncos against Frank Gore.
Dec 12 - 3:28 PM

Broncos signed TE Matt LaCosse off the Giants' practice squad.

LaCosse was an offseason favorite among Giants beat writers in New York, but he never actually did anything in real games. The Broncos are in constant search of tight end help. They curiously gave up on AJ Derby earlier this year.
Dec 11 - 5:29 PM

Broncos placed RG Ronald Leary (back) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Leary was a successful signing by GM John Elway, earning positive grades from Pro Football Focus for both his pass and run blocking. Unfortunately, he couldn't overcome a back injury that kept him out of Weeks 13-14. The Broncos are expected to give Connor McGovern a stretch-run look at right guard.
Dec 11 - 5:13 PM

Jamaal Charles collected three catches for 12 yards on three targets Sunday in the Broncos’ Week 14 win over the Jets.

For the first time all season, Charles did not receive a carry. Operating a distant third behind C.J. Anderson and Devontae Booker, the veteran remains a non-factor for fantasy purposes. Even in deeper leagues, he’s not much of a stash.
