The Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs released their final regular season injury reports of the 2017 season today. For the Broncos, they will be without two of their receivers for the second straight week.

Wide receivers Emmanuel Sanders and Cody Latimer will miss their second consecutive game due to injury thus ending their season with the Broncos. Look for Demaryius Thomas, Jordan Taylor, Bennie Fowler, and Isaiah McKenzie to get playing time in replace of those two.

With Latimer being an unrestricted free agent at seasons end, the Broncos former second-round pick may have played his final game in a Broncos uniform. He disappointed as a receiver but turned into one of the Broncos better Special Teams players during his time with the team.

I’d like to see the Broncos bring Latimer back next season. He showed against the Colts that he can be a solid receiving threat if called on. Plus he’s still fairly young and adds value and depth to the Special Teams unit.

With defensive end/tackle, Zach Kerr ruled out, look to see a lot of veteran Domata Peko in the middle of the Broncos defense. Adam Gotsis and Shelby Harris figure to see a lot of time as well. Both of those players had solid seasons and will look to see their role grow on the team next season.
