The Denver Broncos have lost wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders for the rest of the season. He has suffered a torn Achilles injury.

Sanders went down with the injury in Wednesday’s practice. The team feared it was a torn Achilles almost immediately.

He will undergo tests to confirm the injury.

Sanders was running a route “against air,” according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter said, as the quarterbacks attempted to get some pass in. He was uncovered when the injury happened.

It was a short route that he was running before going down. Schefter said he knew right away that it was an Achilles injury.

After getting hurt, Sanders took off his helmet m. He then rolled his helmet away from his body. The trainers then checked on his left ankle/lower leg, according to Schefter.

This is the second Broncos player, who has been lost for the since Sunday. The lost lost cornerback Chris Harris Jr., who suffered a fractured fibula in the Week 13 win over the Cincinnati Bengals.

These losses are going to be though for the Broncos to overcome. The team has won three consecutive games and stand at 6-6.

They are also back in the AFC playoff picture.

Sanders had 71 receptions for 868 yards and four touchdowns.

This will be the first-time in awhile that he did not surpass 1,000 receiving yards, which he had done the last four seasons.

He has one-year left on his contract. However, the 31-year-old’s 2019 contact is not guaranteed.
