No, Denver Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders was not killed Sunday after he took a huge hit during the St. Louis Rams match, which knocked Sanders out of the game.

Sanders is alive and well, despite the fact that someone edited his Wikipedia page Monday to say otherwise.

Sanders laughed off the death hoax on Twitter.

"Someone changed my Wikipedia 2 I died last night in St. Louis. lol I guess I'm resurrected!#broncos #cantkeepmedown," Sanders tweeted.

The hit by Rams safety Rodney McLeod was brutal and prompted a debate about whether it was dirty. McLeod was penalized for the hit.

Denver lost to the Rams, 22-7.

Sanders reportedly suffered a concussion from the monster hit, but the situation didn't stop him from having some fun with fans on Twitter about the incident, even re-tweeting someone who made a "Sixth Sense" reference about being able to see ghosts.

Sanders is having a solid first season with Denver and seems to have become one of Peyton Manning’s new favorite targets along with Demaryius Thomas and tight end Julius Thomas.

So far this season, the former Pittsburgh Steeler has 67 receptions for 954 yards and seven touchdowns, three of which were in a single game against the San Diego Chargers.
