Emmanuel Sanders, Isaiah McKenzie to miss game against Chargers

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Broncos recievers Emmanuel Sanders and Isaiah McKenzie will miss Sunday’s game against the Chargers, coach Vance Joseph said Monday.

Sanders and McKenzie suffered sprained ankles in Denver’s 23-10 loss to the Giants at Sports Authority Field at Mile High on Sunday night.

Both players had to be carted off to the locker room.

Sanders left the game with a little more than a minute remaining in the third quarter after he was hit in his lower right leg by Giants safety Landon Collins on an incomplete pass.

He was helped off the field by team officials before being carted off to the locker room.

Collins tweeted a get-well-soon message to Sanders after the game.

McKenzie was injured later after he fell awkwardly while attempting to catch a pass. The rookie is the Broncos’ top punt returner.

Joseph said both players will be week to week after the next game, which could mean the injuries are not as serious as first feared.
