Latimer (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports.
Latimer is set to miss his third consecutive game, but his main contributions were on kick return anyway. He only has three targets on the season, hauling in two receptions for 22 yards. With Latimer, Emmanuel Sanders and Isaiah McKenzie all out this week, Jordan Taylor and Hunter Sharp could see added snaps Sunday while working behind Demaryius Thomas and Bennie Fowler.
Latimer (knee) isn't practicing Wednesday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports.
While Latimer's absence for the past two games wasn't a major issue, the Broncos would love to have him back for Week 7 against the Chargers now that Emmanuel Sanders and Isaiah McKenzie are both sidelined by ankle injuries. Latimer should have a role in the offense if he's able to play for the first time since Week 3. Head coach Vance Joseph said Monday that he was hopeful Latimer would return to practice this week.
With Emmanuel Sanders and Isaiah McKenzie both set to miss at least one game with an ankle injury, Latimer could have a regular spot in three-wide formations if he makes it back for Sunday's game against the Chargers. The 2014 second-round pick hasn't played since Week 3 and has caught only two passes for 22 yards on three targets this season.
Latimer (knee) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants.
Latimer did not practice this week as he continues to battle knee soreness. There's no clear recovery timetable at this point, as the 25-year-old is set to miss his second consecutive game.
Latimer has been dealing with knee soreness since late September and did not play against the Raiders in Week 4. The 25-year-old hasn't shown evidence indicating that he is nearing a return at this point, even with the additional rest from the Broncos bye last week.
