Draft Scout *Demaryius Thomas News
12/11/14 - WR Demaryius Thomas did not practice Wednesday. Thomas was slowed by a bruised ankle that he suffered last week when his ankle was stepped on during practice.
12/04/14 - WR Demaryius Thomas was held out of Thursday's practice after suffering an ankle bruise during Wednesday's work. Broncos coach John Fox said that Thomas was stepped on during Wednesday's practice, but would "be fine."
12/03/14 - WR Demaryius Thomas was limited in practice after having his ankle stepped on during the session. Thomas walked slowly through the locker room after practice during the open-to-media period.
11/23/14 - WR Demaryius Thomas came up 13 yards short his eighth consecutive 100-yard receiving yards, which would have matched Lions All-Pro Calvin Johnson. Thomas's three touchdown catches Sunday gives him 39 for his career, seventh on the franchise list. Rod Smith is first with 68.
11/17/14 - The sprained ankle suffered by Julius Thomas in the first quarter hamstrung the Broncos' offense, removing their top inside and quick out threat from the equation, and forcing Manning into passes that took longer to develop.
But Thomas is not expected to miss substantial time and could be back this week. He described his status as "day to day" after further examination Monday.
That is a sigh of relief for Thomas and the Broncos, considering that he battled ankle injuries for the first two seasons of his career that delayed his breakout until 2013.
"I was pretty confident it wasn't like that last one," Thomas said. "But I just wanted to make sure they got a chance to look at it and I wasn't anticipating this being something that ended my season or anything."
With Thomas and wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders sidelined because of a concussion, the Broncos played most of the second half without two players who combined for 19 of their 37 offensive touchdowns so far this season.
