Sanders (illness) made the trip to Cincinnati for Monday's game, ESPN.com reports.

Though Sanders is technically questionable, the fact that he's traveled and had his symptoms described as merely 'flu-like' means that it'd be a big surprise if he didn't play Monday. Coach John Fox himself said that Sanders is expected to play.

Sanders (illness) is questionable for Monday's game against Cincinnati.

Sanders is generally expected to play in Monday's game despite getting sent home from practice Saturday due to flu-like symptoms. So long as his symptoms prove manageable by Monday, Sanders ought to be able to play through it. He'll need to join the Broncos' flight for Cincinnati on Sunday to do that, so we'll keep a lookout for confirmation on Sanders' travel plans.

Sanders (illness) was sent home from Saturday's practice with flu-like symptoms but is expected to play against Cincinnati on Monday, ESPN's Jeff Legwold reports.

Sanders is expected to play, but we'll make sure to note whether he's on the Broncos' plane to Cincinnati on Sunday. If he surprisingly sits out, some combination of Wes Welker and Andre Caldwell should see more snaps.

Sanders had three catches on three targets for 53 yards Sunday against the Chargers.

The Broncos focused heavily on the run Sunday, rushing the ball 39 times versus just 22 pass attempts, which limited Sanders' upside. Demaryius Thomas dominated the targets, getting 11 of the 22 balls thrown his way, and he caught six for 123 yards and a touchdown. Sanders has now seen his receiving yards drop in three consecutive games, though with the way the Broncos have been this season, he could easily dial it up in Week 16 against the Bengals if they focus too heavily on slowing Thomas and tight end Julius Thomas.

Sanders had four catches on six targets for 56 yards during Sunday's win over the Bills.

The Broncos' passing attack was very limited Sunday, as quarterback Peyton Manning threw only 20 passes. Sanders' six targets co-led the team with Wes Welker, and no Broncos receiver scored a touchdown. Sanders has seen his receiving yards drop in two straight games, but he'll look to reverse the trend in Week 15 against the Chargers, who had nine catches for 120 yards and three touchdowns against back in Week 8.

Sanders caught 6-of-11 targets for 73 yards in Sunday's 29-16 win over the Chiefs.

Sanders and Demaryius Thomas combined for 24 of the 34 targets, yet neither came close to 100 yards, as Peyton Manning was uncharacteristically inaccurate. For his part, Sanders looked much the same as ever, working his way open on numerous occasions. The Denver passing game gets another tough matchup in Week 14, with the Bills having allowed just 14 passing touchdowns this season.

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.
