Denver’s 2017 third-round NFL Draft pick Carlos Henderson has missed the entirety of training camp while on the “Did Not Report” list with a personal family issue. Henderson, who tallied 1,535 receiving yards and 19 touchdowns as a senior at Louisiana Tech, was already on thin ice after missing part of the offseason program with a hamstring injury.
“He’s got to get back on the field if he wants to make this football team,” Broncos coach Vance Joseph said at the time.
Then, after training camp practice Thursday, Joseph was asked if he had an update on Henderson.
Of course Thomas, Sanders, Sutton and Hamilton are locks to make the roster, the story said. It's one of the more talented, crowded positions on the team, the story added. Henderson could still make the practice squad even if he doesn't report back in time to make the 53-man roster, especially considering a third-round pick is a valuable asset to spend.
CAR WR Corey Brown - Week 21, 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook
Super Bowl vs. Denver
Corey “Philly” Brown had a big game against the Cardinals in the NFC Championship Game, primarily due to an 86 yard touchdown reception. He ended up with four catches on the day for 113 yards, and he was second on the team with seven targets. Brown has run hot and cold in his short two year career in Carolina, but his issues with drops from earlier in the season seem to be less pronounced in the playoffs.
This week, Brown will face the league’s top pass defense from the regular season. Nobody allowed less passing yards than Denver this year, and it will be difficult for the Panthers to put up elite offensive numbers in the Super Bowl, like they did in the NFC Championship Game. Brown is a risky option, but is probably one of the better bets outside of the top two receiving options this week to catch a long touchdown, giving him some boom/bust value in most leagues.
