ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- **Wide receivers Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) and Cody Latimer (thigh) did not practice for a second consecutive day as the Broncos continued getting ready for their Week 17 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
"They are both really sore," Head Coach Vance Joseph said.
If Sanders and Latimer cannot play, Joseph said he will plan to use the same four wide receivers that he did last Sunday in Washington: Demaryius Thomas, Bennie Fowler III, Jordan Taylor and Isaiah McKenzie.
"Four is enough," Joseph said. "Most teams only dress four [wide receivers] on game day. We dressed five all year, but four is plenty."
Defensive end Zach Kerr (ankle) also missed a second day of practice, while right tackle Elijah Wilkinson was held out of Thursday's work because of an illness.
Quarterback Paxton Lynch saw a full workload for a second consecutive day as he continues to make progress toward starting Sunday.
Inside linebacker Joseph Jones (Achilles tendon) and right tackle Donald Stephenson (hand) saw limited work Thursday.
