Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders will play in a game tonight for the first time since tearing his Achilles at the Dec. 5 practice, and he will start, per source. Sanders will be introduced with Denver’s starters tonight pregame, run out of the tunnel, and be on field for first O snap. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)
Nerdy Football Analysis: It’s actually quite remarkable that Sanders is going to suit up in tonight’s pre-season game given he tore his Achilles back in December. This injury typically comes with a lengthy recovery time and it’s difficult for players to ever regain their top form. If Sanders does begin the season in the starting lineup, he’ll likely be a value at his current ADP as the WR45 being drafted in Round 10.
