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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Veteran NBC broadcaster Al Michaels apologized during Sunday night's Giants-Broncos telecast after joking that the Giants had come off a "worse week than Harvey Weinstein." Michaels was referencing the former film studio executive who was revealed to have paid off sexual harassment allegations over a period of decades. Michaels later said: "Sorry I made a reference earlier. ... I tried to be a little flip about somebody obviously very much in the news all over the county. It was not meant in that manner. So, my apologies. And we'll just leave it at that."
