NFL teams have no obligation to disclose injury information during the preseason. The Broncos opted to do so on Saturday night, in connection with the fact that veteran receiver Demaryius Thomas did not play.
“He’s got a sore wrist,” coach Vance Joseph told reporters after the game. “It happened in practice I think on Thursday and he couldn’t go tonight.”
The story went on to speculate Thomas could end up being the subject of trade talks, mostly because the team has a group of very young receivers in Sutton, Hamilton and Henderson they seem to feel pretty good about. The injury doesn't appear to be serious.
DEN WR Carlos Henderson - 2017 Fantasy Football Outlook
Taken in the third round out of Louisiana Tech in the 2017 NFL Draft, Carlos Henderson is a speedster coming off a huge college season. Playing in an open offense, he caught 82 passes for 1,535 yards and 19 TDs during his junior year.
As with most rookie WRs, it will be a waiting game to get on the field, outside of special teams. Henderson is behind two of league's top receivers in Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, so don’t expect too much from him, especially early on in the season.
There is no reason to draft Henderson, unless you are in a rookie-only or deep keeper league. Most of his catches this year will likely come on third downs.
