Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Runs with cleats on
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanders (Achilles) ran with cleats Friday for the first time since he was injured, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

The 32-year-old wideout reportedly is making good progress in his rehab from the torn Achilles he suffered Dec. 5. The timing of the injury leaves him uncertain to be ready for Week 1, though the Broncos seem to be counting on his availability given their lack of high-profile offseason additions at wide receiver. Any plans to move on from Sanders likely would've taken place back in March before $1.5 million of his $10.15 million base salary became guaranteed. The quarterback situation in Denver doesn't look much better than last season, with Joe Flacco and rookie second-round pick Drew Lock replacing Case Keenum.

Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: In good spot with recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Vic Fangio said Sanders is "progressing well" in his rehab from a torn left Achilles, Zac Stevens of BSNDenver.com reports.

Sanders suffered the injury during practice Dec. 5 and underwent surgery shortly thereafter. Differing reports have noted a 6-to-8-month recovery and his own confidence that he'll be ready by Week 1, which both seem optimistic due to the timeline for a typical player from such a procedure. On a positive note, though, Sanders attended one of the first offseason workouts and took part in warmups, so the 32-year-old appears to be in a good spot, health-wise. No matter when he gains clearance to play, he's on pace to act as one of Joe Flacco's primary options in the passing attack.

Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Has option picked up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Broncos have exercised their contract option on Sanders (Achilles), guaranteeing $1.5 million of his $10.15 million base salary for 2019, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

General manager John Elway announced the decision a couple weeks ago, apparently encouraged by Sanders' initial progress in his recovery from a torn Achilles. The veteran wideout relayed optimism Sunday on his Twitter account, noting that trainers have told him he's far ahead of schedule. He suffered the injury during practice Dec. 5 and will celebrate his 32nd birthday this upcoming weekend. The Broncos clearly expect Sanders to operate as a primary target for new starting quarterback Joe Flacco, though the wideout's age and the timing of his injury do create some level of concern.

Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Continues to progress in recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanders relayed via his personal Twitter account Sunday that trainers have told him he's "wayyy (sic) ahead of schedule" in his recovery from a torn Achilles.

Sanders suffered the devastating injury during practice on Dec. 5. Despite missing the final four games of the campaign, he paced the Broncos in every receiving category, with 71 catches (on 98 targets) for 868 yards and four touchdowns to his credit. Sanders is due a roster bonus of $1.5 million Tuesday, so his immediate future will receive some clarity in the coming days. Once the Broncos' front office makes that decision, he'll continue to focus on his rehab with the stated aim of being ready for the 2019 regular-season opener, when he'd be working with new quarterback Joe Flacco.

Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Returning to Denver in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager John Elway confirmed the Broncos will exercise Sanders' (Achilles) contract option for 2019, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The team seems confident in Sanders' ability to bounce back from the Achilles tear he suffered in early December, with his fast progress early in the recovery process creating hope he can be ready for Week 1 of his age-32 season. Between this decision and the recent agreement to trade for Joe Flacco, it's clear the Broncos are shooting for a 2019 playoff appearance rather than focusing on the future. Elway likely envisions Sanders, Courtland Sutton and DaeSean Hamilton operating as the receivers in three-wideout sets under new offensive coordinator Rich Scangarello. Despite the Broncos' optimism about his health, Sanders is no lock at this point to be ready for the start of training camp, or Week 1 for that matter.
