Demaryius Thomas limited in Friday’s practice, expected to play

The Broncos have been short on injury concerns among players on their 53-man roster this week and things changed only slightly during Friday’s final practice before the AFC Championship Game against the Patriots.

Wide receiver Demaryius Thomas was listed as limited in Friday’s practice, his first appearance on the injury report this week. Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com reports that Thomas felt tightness in his calf earlier in the day, leading the team to scale things back a little bit.

But not too much. Legwold reports Thomas did a significant amount of work during the session and he’s probable to play against the Patriots on Sunday, so the Broncos offense should be moving at full speed.

Everyone but Thomas was a full participant in practice on Friday and all the other players on the injury report — quarterback Peyton Manning, cornerback Kayvon Webster, safety Mike Adams, tight end Joel Dreessen, safety Duke Ihenacho, tackle Winston Justice and guard Chris Kuper — are also probable to play on Sunday.
