Draft Scout *Demaryius Thomas News
08/19/14 - WR Demaryius Thomas leads the Broncos with 10 receptions for 89 yards in the preseason. Thomas had a 20-yard catch-and-run off a drag route Sunday to move the Broncos into the red zone and set up their first points via a field goal.
07/30/14 - WR Demaryius Thomas returned for a Monday night walk-through and took part in Wednesday's practice after missing the first four days of practice following the death of his grandmother from Alzheimer's disease. Thomas will have to be eased back into full-scale, full-pad work, per the NFL's collective bargaining agreement, but will be back at a full workload before the end of the week.
07/28/14 - WR Demaryius Thomas missed seven training camp workouts, but returned to the team Monday and was not able to participate in the scheduled walkthrough after not making it to the morning practice.
Thomas was excused for several days while he arranged and attended the funeral of his grandmother in Georgia. She was integral in raising him while his mother was imprisoned.
The NFL collective bargaining agreement mandates a player participate in three consecutive practices before going through a padded practice. Head coach John Fox said the team is wearing pads Monday as planned.
"He is on schedule, he is back in the building and we will just leave it at that," Fox said.
Thomas and the Broncos reportedly began discussions about a new contract in the offseason, but minimal progress was made. There is no indication Thomas will not return to the field, and wide receiver Wes Welker said there is no worry among his peers.
"I can't speak for when he is going to be back exactly or anything like that but we are anxious to have him back and understand his situation and everything like that and feel for him," Welker said Monday. "Whenever he is ready, he is ready and we know what type of player he is, what type of person he is, and we are ready to have him out here on this football field with us."
Thomas was not the only star on the sideline Monday.
