    Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Gets guarantees for 2018

    Approximately 80 percent of Emmanuel Sanders' $8.25 million salary for the 2018 season is already guaranteed, Mike Klis of 9 News Denver reports.There was some thought after the past season that Sanders may have taken his last snaps in Denver with the Denver Broncos eager to clear up cap space, but the team found room to keep the wideout around after shedding Aqib Talib's contract in a trade with the Rams. Now that he's expected to be back in the fold for 2018, Sanders will look to prove to the Broncos that he's still an ideal complement to No. 1 receiver Demaryius Thomas after an ankle injury cost Sanders four games and limited him in many others during the 2017 campaign. In addition to better health, Sanders could see his production bounce back to some extent thanks to the offseason pickup of Case Keenum, who should amount to an upgrade over the three quarterbacks (Paxton Lynch, Trevor Siemian and Brock Osweiler) that started games for Denver a season ago.

    Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Expected back in 2018

    Denver Broncos general manager John Elway said Wednesday he expects Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) to remain with the team in 2018, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports.With the Broncos eager to open up cap space to aid their pursuit of one of the top quarterbacks on the market this offseason, Sanders and fellow wideout Demaryius Thomas have been mentioned as candidates for trade or release in order to free up money. Elway's comments suggest the Broncos aren't leaning in that direction, however, indicating that the team may prefer to cut a high-priced veteran or two on defense in order to improve their cap situation. Sanders, who is said to be nearly back to full health following months of rehab from a significant right ankle sprain that nagged him in 2017, should thus retain a starting role during the upcoming season, though like Thomas, his outlook will remain foggy until the Broncos' plans at quarterback become clearer. None of the three signal callers who started games in 2017 -- Paxton Lynch, Trevor Siemian (shoulder) and Brock Osweiler -- are expected to open the 2018 campaign atop the depth chart.

    Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Nearing full recovery

    Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) has resumed running and is nearing a full recovery, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. "It's going well, my ankle is recovering," Sanders said. "Right now, I feel like I'm 95 percent."Sanders sustained a "major" sprained ankle and tibia contusion in Week 5 against the Giants and his recovery has been complicated by swelling, a limited range of motion and diminished strength, according to the doctor in charge of his rehabilitation. However, barring any setbacks, it sounds like he could be recovered in time for OTAs in late April or early May.

    Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Finishes 2017 with just two scores

    Emmanuel Sanders caught 47 of 94 passes for 555 yards and two touchdowns in 2017.A bum ankle suffered in Week 5 limited Sanders to 12 games in 2017, and his general effectiveness when he was playing. Sanders, when healthy, has been arguably Denver's most dangerous target over the past two or three seasons and his hobbling 137-yard effort against the Patriots in Week 10 is a testament to his toughness. Sanders, like many of the Denver Broncos' veterans, will be the subject of speculation this offseason, but his quality play when healthy and the fact that the team would only save $5.6 million by cutting him and lose $5.4 million makes it unlikely that the team can find somebody better for the money. Sanders, like every skill position player in Denver, will see his value spike or continue downward depending on whether the Broncos find an answer at quarterback in free agency and/or with the No. 5 pick in the draft.

    Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Ruled out for season finale

    Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Andrew Mason of the Denver Broncos' official site reports.The same applies to Cody Latimer (thigh), and as a result Bennie Fowler, Jordan Taylor and Isaiah McKenzie are all candidates to see added Week 17 work behind Denver's top wideout, Demaryius Thomas.

    Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Misses another practice

    Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) did not practice Thursday, Mike Klis of 9 News Denver reports.Nor did Cody Latimer (thigh), with the duo looking pretty iffy for Sunday's season finale against the Chiefs. If the two wideouts sit out the contest, Bennie Fowler, Jordan Taylor and Isaiah McKenzie would all be candidates to see added Week 17 work behind Denver's top wideout, Demaryius Thomas.

    Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Still very sore

    Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph said Wednesday that Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) is still very sore, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports.Joseph also said the wideout will need to practice before the end of the week if he's going to play in Sunday's game against the Chiefs. Sanders got off on the wrong foot in that regard, sitting out Wednesday's session after doing the same all last week. While the early signs point to a second straight absence to close out the season, he does still have two more chances to get in some form of practice. Even if the Chiefs rest key starters, there isn't a ton of hope for the Denver passing game in Week 17, considering Paxton Lynch (ankle) already has been named as the starter. With Cody Latimer (thigh) also out in Week 16 and absent from Wednesday's practice, Bennie Fowler could get another start across from Demaryius Thomas.

    Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Doesn't practice Wednesday

    Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) wasn't present for practice Wednesday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports.Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph noted Tuesday that Sanders, who continues to deal with ankle soreness, is day-to-day, with the wideout's status for the Broncos' regular-season finale against the Chiefs not yet decided. However, the 5-10 Broncos have nothing concrete to play for Sunday, so the team has little incentive to push Sanders to suit up.

    Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Deemed day-to-day

    Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph said Tuesday that Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) remains day-to-day and the wideout's status for the regular-season finale against the Chiefs hasn't been decided, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports. "[Sanders is] still really sore," Joseph said.Sanders aggravated a right ankle injury in the Week 15 win over the Colts and was sidelined for Sunday's 27-11 loss to the Redskins after putting in only one limited practice leading up to the contest. Though Sanders will have a more realistic shot at playing this week, he may need to practice fully at least once in order for the Broncos to give him the green light for what amounts to a mostly meaningless Week 17 game. In addition to potentially being hobbled by the injury if he suits up, Sanders' fantasy prospects would likely be inhibited by the presence of newly minted starting quarterback Paxton Lynch, who passed for just 41 yards in about two and a half quarters in his lone other start of the season back in Week 12 against the Raiders.
