Broncos' Demaryius Thomas likely to miss Week One

The good news for Broncos rookie receiver Demaryius Thomas is that he doesn’t have a stress fracture. The bad news is that the foot is bothering him enough that he probably will miss the regular-season opener.

Thomas wasn’t at practice today after injuring the foot yesterday, and Jeff Legwold of the Denver Post reports that the team initially feared Thomas could miss three or four months with a stress fracture in his left foot — the same foot he injured during a pre-draft workout in February.

But an MRI revealed that Thomas does not have a stress fracture and apparently just has some problems with scar tissue from the previous injury.

Still, Thomas, who was taken with the 22nd pick in the first round of the draft, isn’t expected to be ready to get back on the field in time for the September 12 opener against the Jaguars. For the Broncos, that’s one more piece of bad injury news in a painful August.

  1. Not a problem. Royal, Gafney, Decker, Stokely, and the new tight end Branson can fill in adequately.
    Plus Clady, Bailey, DJ Williams, Jamal Williams, Moreno, Buckhalter, are all getting healthy.
    Am I the only person on this site who knows anything about the Broncos?
    We have lost (1) player for the season, and have a ton of guys getting healthy.
    This team is gonna score some major points in year 2 of McDaniels’ system.
    Bank on it.

  2. from your posts earlier, sounds like its good news to me. I mean, one week, vs 4 months? doesn’t take a genius to figure that out. This site sucks.

  3. DT when healthy could be just as good or better than Brandon Marshall. Give him a year or two to develop (just like Marshall had) and he will be tearing things up!!!

  4. “DHB part 2.
    This guy will bust.”
    If you see him play, he’s nothing like DHB.
    He has good hands, a huge frame and a great work ethic. So definitely not DHB.

  5. Wow. If only there were some precedent in Denver for not taking a guy high in the draft with an injury ….
    If only another coaching regime, who had *hit luck in the draft with this sort of thing, could have provided a blueprint for what not to do.
    jkiddrock, why don’t you educate us? Is there any precedent in Denver for this kind of thing? I mean, since you know all about the Broncos.

  6. Thomas and DHB are two completley different people. You’d have to be a complete retard to even make that comparison. But thanks for identifying yourself.

  7. Marshall caught all of 20 passes his first season. Bay Bay could sit on the bench until December and outperform that mark.
