Also Monday Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas said he had heard rumors and reports of a potential trade "all year.'' He also added: “I love to be here. I'm going to do what I've got to do to be ready ... I play for these guys in this locker room, and the organization of course, but these guys in the locker room. (I) don't think about it and just go on about my business, I can control what I can control, that's all I do, every day in and out … the rest will pan out for itself.'' Thomas has 33 receptions for 372 yards and is tied for the team lead in receiving touchdowns with Emmanuel Sanders with three.

On Monday Broncos coach Vance Joseph still characterized running back Royce Freeman (ankle) and safety Darian Stewart (neck/stinger) as "day to day.'' Wide receiver DaeSean Hamilton has an MCL sprain of right knee -- he was wearing a brace on the injured knee Monday -- and could need some recovery time. Joseph did add that cornerback Adam Jones (hamstring) "is ready to play'' against the Chiefs Sunday and will practice Wednesday. Joseph said he was hopeful tackle Jared Veldheer (knee) and linebacker Shane Ray (wrist/ankle) could practice some this week.

Broncos coach Vance Joseph said Friday safety Darian Stewart suffered his third "stinger'' in the last three games Thursday night against the Cardinals, so Stewart may miss some time -- "we'll see about that,'' Joseph said. Joseph also classified running back Royce Freeman (ankle) and wide receiver DaeSean Hamilton (knee) as "day-to-day.'' Joseph said "hopefully'' Freeman will be able to play against the Chiefs a week from Sunday. And on wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (ankle), Joseph said: "Emmanuel Sanders is OK, his ankle is fine.'' The Broncos won't practice again until Monday, but those players, and several others, will be at the team's facility for treatment this weekend.

The Broncos' training staff will continue to evaluate four players Friday -- safety Darian Stewart (neck), wide receiver DaeSean Hamilton (knee), running back Royce Freeman (ankle) and wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (ankle). All four left Thursday's win over the Cardinals and did not return. Broncos coach Vance Joseph said Stewart suffered a stinger and "had the same stinger last week,'' so that could be a concern moving forward. Sanders said he "should be fine'' while Freeman was limping slightly as he went to the team's bus after the game. Hamilton is expected to undergo a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exam Friday.
