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.
“None,” Joseph said. That was it.

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.
