E. Sanders - WR
Sanders (ankle) noted after Thursday's win over the Cardinals that he planted his ankle wrong during the end of the contest but believes he could have finished the game if needed, Zac Stevens of BSN Denver reports.
Sanders believes he'll be fine going forward, and it certainly helps that the Broncos now have 10 days before their divisional matchup with Kansas City. Before exiting the contest, Sanders had a monster performance, leading the Broncos with six receptions for 102 yards and a touchdown while adding a passing touchdown as well. He now has back-to-back games of over 100 yards receiving and is averaging 16.7 yards per reception in those contests.

Q. Spain - OG
Spain (shoulder) missed practice Thursday, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.
Spain has still yet to participate in practice this week, putting his status in jeopardy for Sunday's game against the Chargers. His absence would be bad news for one of the league's most inefficient offenses, downgrading an already troubled rushing attack. If Spain is unable to suit up, Corey Levin will likely see the majority of snaps at left guard.

K. Vaccaro - DB
Vaccaro (elbow) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.
Vaccaro was a limited participant in practice for the second consecutive day, maintaining some hope he'll be able to play Sunday against the Chargers. He's still towards the early end of his original 2-to-4 week timetable, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him sit out if he is unable to participate in a full practice Friday.

L. Fitzgerald - WR
Fitzgerald brought in four of eight targets for 40 yards and a touchdown in the Cardinals' 45-10 loss to the Broncos on Thursday.
Fitzgerald logged the only touchdown of the game for the Cardinals when he hauled in a four-yard scoring dart from Josh Rosen just before the halfway point of the third period. It was notably the veteran receiver's first trip to the end zone this season, while his 40 receiving yards actually represented his best total since a 76-yard effort against the Redskins in Week 1 with Sam Bradford under center. Fitzgerald does continue to see plenty of targets, with Thursday serving as his second straight game with eight looks. While Rosen's inconsistency is likely to continue wreaking havoc with Fitzgerald's overall production, he remains a fantasy consideration heading into a Week 8 divisional battle against the 49ers.
Added 12:15 am (EST)
C. Kirk - WR
Kirk brought in three of six targets for 57 yards in the Cardinals' 45-10 loss to the Broncos on Thursday.
Kirk's modest yardage total actually served a team high on the night, a testament to the struggles of Josh Rosen and the Cardinals' passing attack overall. Kirk also logged a team-best 27-yard catch, and he's now posted one reception of over 20 yards in four of the last five games. The 2018 second-round pick's speed affords him plenty of upside, but his production will likely continuing experiencing its fair share of fluctuation considering it's largely tied in to the fortunes of the inconsistent Rosen. Kirk will look to up his numbers when he faces the 49ers in Week 8.
Added 12:10 am (EST)
D. Johnson - RB
Johnson rushed 14 times for 39 yards and brought in all three of his targets for another 31 yards in the Cardinals' 45-10 loss to the Broncos on Thursday.
On paper, Johnson appeared to have a tantalizing matchup and opportunity for his first true breakout performance versus a Denver defense that had surprisingly been gashed on the ground this season. However, the game script played out much differently, with the Broncos' three-touchdown first quarter quickly putting an emphasis on the passing game for the Cardinals. Johnson still logged a serviceable 14 carries, but the 25 touches he managed in a Week 4 loss to the Seahawks still serves as his season high. That's a far cry from Johnson's 2016 salad days, when he rivaled Le'Veon Bell for the title of best running back in the league while seeing 377 touches overall. Johnson will look to bounce back from yet another pedestrian outing against the 49ers in Week 8.
Added 12:06 am (EST)
J. Rosen - QB
Rosen completed 21 of 39 passes for 194 yards with a touchdown and three interceptions in the Cardinals' 45-10 loss to the Broncos on Thursday. He also rushed once for 14 yards and fumbled on three occasions, losing two and recovering one.
Four days after throwing for a career-high 240 yards against the Vikings, the rookie saw the harshest of downturns Thursday. Rosen's nightmare outing began early, when he was victimized for a pick-six by Todd Davis on the second play of the game. The Broncos struck again later in the period, with Chris Harris, Jr. doing the honors to the tune of a 53-yard scamper into the end zone off Rosen's second pick. In all, the 2018 first-round pick was responsible for a whopping five turnovers, took six sacks and was hit on 11 occasions overall. He'll look dust himself off and bounce back in a Week 8 battle against the division-rival 49ers.

R. Seals-Jones - TE
Seals-Jones (forearm) noted that he did not suffer a break in his arm, just a bruise, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.
It is a small amount of positive news for the Cardinals on a night where everything seemed to go wrong. Seals-Jones should be okay and seems unlikely to miss an extended period of time due to the bruised arm. However, look for more updates on his official status to come next week when the team resumes practice.
