Sanders won't play vs. Broncos
Safety James Sanders was the lone Patriot downgraded to out on the team's Saturday injury report.
That means linebacker Jerod Mayo is, at the least, a game-time decision. That is good news for Mayo, who has been out since spraining his MCL in the season opener.
Sanders' absence could create more opportunities for rookie Pat Chung.
