And River Cracraft showed the Broncos he has recovered nicely from last season's ACL surgery as he posted on Twitter he has signed with the team. He will wear No. 19 and could contribute as a slot receiver fairly quickly when he gets a comfort level in the offense.

Among the wide receivers the Broncos worked out Tuesday, two are rookies who suffered knee injuries in their final college seasons and those injuries affected their draft status -- River Cracraft and Domonique Young. Cracraft missed the last three games of Washington State's '16 season with a torn ACL while Young tore his ACL, LCL and PCL when he dislocated a knee in Purdue's game against Illinois in '16. Young went to the Jets' rookie camp earlier in offseason.

With the injuries to Emmanuel Sanders and Isaiah McKenzie the Broncos worked out four wide receivers Tuesday -- River Cracraft, Devin Lucien, Tim Patrick and Domonique Young. They also have Hunter Sharp on the team's practice squad. As of Tuesday afternoon they had not notified the league of any signings to fill the two roster spots created with the release of Ahtyba Rubin and Billy Turner being moved to injured reserve.

FPI: SNF upset did number on Denver

The Broncos' surprise home loss to the then-winless Giants dipped Denver's playoff chances to under 50 percent in ESPN's FPI for the first time since Week 1.

After listening to it again need to make clear that Vance Joseph actually said wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie's right ankle sprain was a "little bit LESS of a sprain" than Emmanuel Sanders' injury. Sanders' is a bit more severe. Again he called both players week to week.

Jeff Legwold ESPN Senior Writer 

Broncos coach Vance Joseph said just now that both Emmanuel Sanders and Isaiah McKenzie both have sprains -- he said McKenzie's was more significant -- and would be week to week. Also said quarterback Trevor Siemian had an MRI on left shoulder and it came back with good news for the team. Said Siemian will play against Chargers. Tackle Billy Turner also suffered fractured right hand in game and having surgery today in Vail.

Broncos coach Vance Joseph said on team's radio partner today wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders will miss at least Sunday's game in against Chargers. Joseph also called Sanders "week to week," which can mean a lot of things so how long Sanders will be out remains to be seen. Joseph, for example, called Paxton Lynch week to week in August.

And also bad news when Broncos try to re-live three wide receiver glory of seasons past -- they have surrendered 11 sacks in the last three games, including two losses -- 10 of those sacks when they have struggled to protect in their three wide receiver sets.

Jeff Legwold ESPN Senior Writer 

Food for thought on Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian: When he attempts fewer than 40 passes in his starts the Broncos are 10-2. When he attempts 40 or more passes in his starts the Broncos are 1-6, including Sunday night's loss. Eight of his 16 career interceptions have come in this seven starts he has attempted more than 40 passes.

Broncos eye toll of injuries to 3 receivers, QB

Broncos receivers Emmanuel Sanders and Isaiah McKenzie will each have MRI exams on ankle injuries, and Trevor Siemian will likely have an MRI on his left, non-throwing shoulder. Receiver Demaryius Thomas will also be further evaluated for a leg injury.

Jeff Legwold ESPN Senior Writer 

Vance Joseph also said the Broncos will "probably" get an MRI Monday on quarterback Trevor Siemian's left shoulder. It's the same shoulder Siemian had surgically repaired this offseason.

Jeff Legwold ESPN Senior Writer 

Broncos coach Vance Joseph said after Sunday's game that wide receiver Demaryius Thomas had an X-ray on Thomas' lower leg during third quarter and returned to game. Joseph also said wide receivers Emmanuel Sanders and Isaiah McKenzie will have MRIs on ankle injuries Monday. He added that X-rays on both Sanders' and McKenzie's injuries were negative.

Jeff Legwold ESPN Senior Writer 

Broncos running back C.J. Anderson may have summed up the team's evening with "we got out a-- kicked tonight, we got hit in the mouth ... and if we play that way in L.A. we'll get our a-- kicked again."

Jeff Legwold ESPN Senior Writer 

With a loss tonight the Broncos would fall to 1-6 in games when quarterback Trevor Siemain attempts 40 or more passes. They're 0-2 this season when he attempts at least 40 passes.
