Sanders, who suffered a concussion last Sunday against the Rams, had nine catches on 13 targets for a team-high 125 yards Sunday against the Dolphins.
Sanders has now broken the 100-yard mark seven times this season, including four times in the last five games. He also has six touchdowns over that span, as he remains an excellent option as one of quarterback Peyton Manning's preferred pass-catchers. Up next is a Week 13 matchup against the Chiefs, who Sanders had eight catches on nine targets for 108 yards against back in Week 2.

Sanders (concussion) is listed as active Sunday against the Dolphins, ESPN's Jeff Legwold reports.
Sanders is out there, as expected, after practicing fully Friday, though it remains to be seen if he sees his normal workload Sunday after missing practice both Wednesday and Thursday after suffering a concussion last weekend.

Per Troy E. Renck of the Denver Post, "all signs point toward" Sanders (concussion) playing Sunday against the Dolphins.
Supporting that notion, is that ESPN's Jeff Legwold relays that Sanders practiced fully Friday and is listed as probable for Sunday's game. While the wideout's status remains worth tracking in advance of Sunday's 4:25 ET kickoff, it appears as though he will suit up for the contest, in the absence of any setbacks.

Sanders (concussion) participated in practice Friday, Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports.
Klis adds that Sanders was cleared for physical activity Thursday afternoon, but it remains seen if the wideout gains full clearance under the NFL's concussion protocol in advance of Sunday's 4:25 ET contest against the Dolphins.

Sanders (concussion) did not practice Thursday, Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports.
What, if anything, Sanders is able to do at practice Friday will be telling, but for the time being the wideout's status for Sunday's game against the Dolphins is cloudy. If Sanders is out or limited at all this weekend, the likes of Wes Welker, Andre Caldwell and perhaps rookie Cody Latimer could see added looks in the Broncos' Week 12 offense.

Sanders is expected to miss practice time this week after suffering a concussion Sunday against the Rams, Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports.
Sanders will thus need to go through the NFL's concussion protocol in order to be cleared in advance of Sunday's game against the Dolphins. If Sanders is forced to miss time, Wes Welker could see added looks in the Denver offense this weekend, as could the likes of Andre Caldwell and rookie Cody Latimer.

Sanders has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Rams after being diagnosed with a concussion, according to Lindsay Jones of USA Today.
Sanders took a nasty hit to the head on a deep route near the sideline and struggled to get up afterward. The injury comes at a tough time for the Broncos, who had already lost Julius Thomas to an ankle injury and Montee Ball to groin issue. Sanders did have a solid game before going down, catching five passes on eight targets for 102 yards and a touchdown. He'll have to proceed through the league's concussion protocol before returning to practice, putting his availability for Week 12 against the Dolphins in question. Wes Welker could see more targets in Sanders' absence, with Andre Caldwell another possibility for increased work.

Sanders is being evaluated for a concussion after taking a vicious hit to the head during the third quarter of Sunday's game against the Rams, according to the Denver Post.

Sanders caught five passes on eight targets for 67 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the Raiders.
After waiting until Week 7 to catch his first touchdown pass for the Broncos, Sanders has now scored six times in the last four games, with his 10-catch, 151-yard performance last Sunday against the Patriots the only game without getting into the end zone over that span. Despite the plethora of weapons at quarterback Peyton Manning's disposal, Sanders continues to be a popular target, making him an excellent fantasy option.
