Sanders, who is dealing with ankle and finger injuries, is listed as probable for Sunday night's game against the Patriots, the Denver Post reports. Given the probable designation and the fact that Sanders practiced fully Friday, the wideout looks like a go for Sunday's 8:30 ET contest, in the absence of any unexpected pre-game setbacks.
Sanders (ankle/finger) practiced for the second straight day Thursday, the Denver Post reports. Sanders missed this past Sunday's win over the Bears with a left high ankle sprain, but the report relays that wideout "ran well both days in practice this week," which bodes well for his chances of suiting up Sunday night against the Patriots.
Sanders (ankle/finger) was listed as a limited practice participant Wednesday. Though officially listed as limited, per the Denver Post, Sanders -- who has been dealing with a left high ankle sprain -- "was pretty much a full participant" at practice Wednesday, with the wideout indicating that he is hopeful with regard to his chances of playing Sunday night against the Patriots.
Sanders (toe/finger) stated Monday that he's been dealing with a high ankle sprain, The Denver Post reports. Sanders initially injured his left ankle in a Week 9 loss at Indianapolis, but after sitting out the subsequent week of prep, he convinced the training staff that he was good to go in Week 10 against Kansas City. After going without a catch on four targets, he followed a similar practice routine in advance of Sunday's game in Chicago. However, he was unable to achieve active status, and the true nature of the ailment was revealed by the wide receiver Monday. Suiting up for one of the last two contests may have hindered his recovery effort, but how he proceeds through practice this week will determine if the speedy wideout is available to quarterback Brock Osweiler.
Sanders (toe/finger) is positioned to return for Sunday's game against the Patriots, according to The Denver Post. After struggling to play through his injuries in Week 10, Sanders was inactive for Sunday's win over the Bears. He was actually expected to give it a go, but the cold weather in Chicago made it difficult for him to get loose. The final decision may have also been impacted by the team's desire to have Sanders healthy for Sunday against the Patriots, as the Broncos need a win if they're going to have any shot at the AFC's top seed.
