Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle, questionable) missed practice all week and is questionable for Week 10. The lack of practice reps this week are concerning, and it looks like Sanders is in real danger of missing Week 10. The Broncos play late on Sunday, which doesn’t help. Jordan Norwood, Andre Caldwell and Bennie Fowler are the next men up, with Cody Latimer a distant fourth in that group in snaps played this season.

Broncos WR Andre Caldwell (illness) was added to the injury report Thursday after missing practice.
Biggest disappointment: Montee Ball failed to gain traction in the new offense. He is a smart player, a hard worker, but he does not look like the player he was at Wisconsin or even during his rookie season. There haven't been many holes to run through, but in the NFL you have to make tacklers miss and break tackles, which Ball has not done with any consistency.
It sounds as if Latimer may not have a solid hold of the WR3 spot. He's not going to play much if HC Gary Kubiak sticks with his usual two-TE sets. Ball has fallen down the depth chart and is in danger of getting cut.
No player benefitted more from Demaryius Thomas' absence during the Broncos' offseason than Cody Latimer. With the three-time Pro Bowler not under contract, Latimer got the repetitions with the first team that eluded him last year, and the progress was obvious.
"I’m really excited about what he can bring and I know he’s a lot better now than when he started," HC Gary Kubiak said. "I’m excited moving forward.”
Latimer is a player to monitor this offseason, especially with the news that Emmanuel Sanders is going to play the slot in three-receiver sets. Latimer had a disappointing rookie season and wasn't even able to beat out Andre Caldwell. New HC Gary Kubiak favors two-TE sets, so Latimer’s snaps may be limited. The third receiver in Baltimore didn’t even play half the snaps under Kubiak. Latimer’s talent may earn him a larger role, but that remains to be seen.

Second-year receiver Cody Latimer benefited from extra reps at workouts with Peyton Manning at Duke University. He received pointers that could accelerate his learning curve with the new offense. Manning had Latimer run routes that might be incorporated into the scheme of new Broncos coach Gary Kubiak.
"He texted me, and I asked if I could go down there," Latimer said of Manning. "It meant a lot."
Latimer spent his offseason training in Florida. "It really helped give me a headstart," he said.
Latimer is a player to monitor this offseason, especially with the news that Emmanuel Sanders is going to play the slot in three-receiver sets. Latimer had a disappointing rookie season and wasn't even able to beat out Andre Caldwell. However, it takes time to earn Manning's trust, and the franchise didn't draft him in the second round to ride the proverbial pine.
