DENVER, CO - NOVEMBER 13: Wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders /

As training camp continues for the Denver Broncos, Carlos Henderson has yet to appear. Teammate Emmanuel Sanders reached out to show support.

With two days of training camp completed, the Denver Broncos have yet to see Carlos Henderson on the field. As a caring teammate, Emmanuel Sanders reached out to the second year wide receiver.

It was announced early before camp that Carlos Henderson was placed on the reserve/did not report list. Vance Joseph stated that Henderson was dealing with family issues, which is why he is currently not at Dove Valley. Wanting to check in on his teammate, Sanders told the media that he reached out to him recently.

“I texted and told him, this is bigger than football. I just wanted to talk to him about life. I just want to make sure he is alright.”

Sanders said that he has not received a response yet. Hopefully he will reach out soon.

Denver drafted Carlos Henderson in the third round of last year’s NFL Draft. He missed all of the 2017 season with an injury. He had a run in with the law shortly after the season ended with possession of marijuana.

Emmanuel Sanders did a great thing in reaching out to Carlos Henderson. It shows what kind of teammate he is. Sanders said that he plans to give Henderson some time and then will attempt to reach out again and offer him guidance.

Missing out on training camp is certainly going to set Henderson back a bit. It is bad enough that he is missing out. Henderson could be one of the players on the roster bubble. This will be a story to follow as the team begins putting on the pads and playing in their preseason games.

We hope that Carlos Henderson can get on the field soon.
