Demaryius Thomas wants to reduce his fumbles, and the easiest way to do that is to not play.
That’s probably not an ideal option.
But Thomas has a hip injury. According to Lindsay Jones of the Denver Post, he was limited in practice on Thursday, the first full day of work as the Broncos prepare for a key Monday night game against the Chargers.
Also limited was left tackle Ryan Clady, who has a hamstring injury.
Both players will be needed if quarterback Peyton Manning is to reverse a 1-5 trend against the Chargers.
