BREAKING: Broncos Fear WR Emmanuel Sanders Tore Achilles During Practice
This is just awful.
Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders was helped to locker room by trainers just before the end of the open period in Wednesday’s practice and it appeared to be a lower leg injury.
Broncos believe that WR Emmanuel Sanders tore his Achilles during practice today, per source. Team usually can tell right away, but it will conduct tests on Sanders to confirm. But early belief is torn Achilles.
