After the hit Sanders took against the Rams, Broncos Country and the Broncos were holding their breath as to whether he would play this Sunday.
When it comes to concussions, you don’t mess around. Ask Wes Welker.
To the delight of fans and the team, “E” will play against Miami.
With the season he’s having, this is huge. Sanders has 67 catches for 954 yards and seven touchdowns. All are career highs for the best free agent acquisition of any team.
After Sanders went out against St. Louis, the Broncos offense wasn’t the same. There was no ability to test the field vertically and no option outside of Demaryius Thomas.
Denver’s offense was beyond anemic. It was non-existent. It was the worst the Broncos’ offense has looked since Peyton Manning came to Denver.
Watch for the impact Sanders could have against Miami. Hopefully, Adam Gase and Manning come out to prove a point.
The perfect way for this offense to start is as it did against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 2. Throw a deep pass to Sanders.
That will show the Dolphins’ defense it is in for a fight.
Given the scare Sanders had, I would bet on him having a big game.
