New, comments

Your Denver Broncos vs. Miami Dolphins injury report for Thursday.

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

The best news Thursday didn't have a direct effect on the injury/practice report. But it has the potential to impact it Friday.

Wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders has progressed in the concussion protocol where he can participate in conditioning.

"He's going through that phase of the protocol now," head coach John Fox said. "We'll evaluate it again [Friday]. We're optimistic, but we'll see what [Friday] brings."

We infer this means Sanders may practice Friday.

Tight end Julius Thomas was also seen at practice, though he did not participate.
