Emmanuel Sanders injury update 10/14 10:50 a.m.

The Broncos apparently have gotten more good news on wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders. He left Sunday’s Week 6 game at halftime with a knee injury, but Ian Rapoport is hearing the team is optimistic Sanders will be able to play on Thursday Night Football against the Broncos. The knee injury got him on the practice participation report all last week, and he sufficiently aggravated it that he needed to shut it down for the second half of the game. The team will produce practice participation reports Monday through Wednesday, so we’ll find out more as those arrive.

The Broncos have gotten some good news on wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders. He was ruled out at halftime with a knee injury, but the team does not believe it is a serious injury, according to NFL Network reporter James Palmer. They face the Chiefs on Thursday, and Palmer is reporting the short week is not a concern.

The Denver Broncos are holding off the Tennessee Titans, but they’ll have to close out the game with one of their top offensive weapons. Wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders has been ruled out with a knee injury. The news came when the team returned for the second half after Sanders had three targets resulting in one reception for zero yards.

Early in the fourth quarter, Courtland Sutton leads the Brocnos with two receptions for 53 yards, followed by Royce Freeman who has five receptions for 42 yards. DeSean Hamilton has two receptions for 25 yards, and is the receiver who will see the biggest uptick in opportunities if Sanders misses any time.

Sanders entered the game with 24 receptions for 307 yards and two touchdowns.
