ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Quarterback Paxton Lynch and wide receivers Emmanuel Sanders and Cody Latimer are listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Washington, Head Coach Vance Joseph announced after practice Friday.

Lynch is at "about 90 percent," Joseph said. He did not say whether Lynch or Brock Osweiler would start Sunday, adding that a decision would be made after meetings later Friday.

"We had a good day today," Joseph said. "He's practiced all week. We'll see. But obviously we're close now."

Joseph noted that the effect of the high-ankle injury on Lynch's mobility would be considered in making a decision.

"He's a quarterback that can use his legs when he's in danger, so I want to make sure that he's right," Joseph said Thursday.

Sanders returned to practice Friday on a limited basis. He did not practice Wednesday and Thursday because of an ankle injury that he has been playing through since returning to the lineup in Week 9.

He initially suffered the injury in the second half of the Broncos' Week 6 loss to the New York Giants. He missed two games before returning to the lineup.

"He's still sore with the high ankle, but [there have] been weeks when he's been sore on Friday and played on Sunday," Joseph said.

Latimer saw limited work Wednesday and Thursday because of a thigh injury. He did not practice Friday.
