Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said Monday that he expected wide receiver Demaryius Thomas to be on the practice field Wednesday despite a hip injury that he suffered in last Thursday’s victory over the Panthers.
Thomas didn’t take part in the team’s practice on Monday after reportedly having an MRI over the weekend, but fulfilled Kubiak’s hope that he’d get back on the field. Thomas wasn’t a full participant in practice and reports from media members at the session were that he showed signs of discomfort with the hip, something Kubiak attributed to being “sore” while saying the team will see how he feels on Wednesday.
“He looked OK with what we asked him to do,” Kubiak said, via the Denver Post. “We’re going to take it a step at a time this week. We knew we had him set for certain plays at practice and tomorrow we’ll pick it up.”
Kubiak added that Thomas has “been through some of this before” and that the team is planning as if Thomas will be on the field for their matchup with the Colts.
