NFL player denies Wikipedia's claims he's dead

Emmanuel Sanders is alive and getting kicked.

ON SUNDAY NIGHT, Denver Bronco’s wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders was minding his own business, running down the sideline to catch a Peyton Manning pass when this happened:

Sanders remained on the ground for some time, but was eventually helped to his feet and brought back to the dressing rooms.

The defender received an unnecessary roughness penalty for the hit – even though replays would show it was legal – but Sanders was ruled out for the rest of the game.

Shortly afterwards, Wikipedia reported that Sanders had died.

However, Sanders took to Twitter yesterday to prove he was very much still alive.
