Denver Broncos star Emmanuel Sanders will miss the remainder of the NFL season with a torn Achilles.

The Broncos were dealt the major blow on Wednesday after wide receiver Sanders went down during practice midweek.

Sanders was helped off the field and did not put any weight on his left leg as he was taken into the locker room for further evaluation, according to reports.
