Julius Thomas set for MRI on Monday

The Broncos came storming back for a win in the fourth quarter against Washington on Sunday without the services of tight end Julius Thomas, who left the game with an ankle injury early in the second half.

Thomas tweeted late Sunday night that he would have more of an idea about the severity of the injury on Monday and Vic Lombardi of CBS4 in Denver reports that he’ll undergo an MRI to make that determination.

Thomas’ breakout this season has come in large part because the last two season have been almost completely ruined by ankle injuries, so anything in that area is sure to be of serious concern to the Broncos. The timing of the bye week works in their favor if it turns out to be a minor problem, but it won’t mean all that much if Thomas is going to be sidelined for a long stretch.

Through eight games, Thomas has caught 39 passes for 451 yards and eight touchdowns. The fireworks late on Sunday prove that the Broncos can score without him, but one imagines they’d prefer not to even try.

    Go ahead and rest a few weeks orange Julius. I wasn’t looking forward to watching you scorch my bolts in a couple weeks anyways.

    My worst nightmare would be Tony Gonzalez in a Broncos uniform, so I hope Orange Julius is ok!

    Gonzalez will retire before he goes to another team. Rest easy.

    Seems like the Broncos are brittle. It was just a tackle, his legs got tangled a bit but man. I saw Dangelo Hall throw down D Thomas, Thomas is like 100 pounds heavier, lol.

    This bye week, broncos need to get tougher

    In the future, try using Julius and Demaryius so people will know the difference…
