Demaryius Thomas is still dealing with the shoulder injury he sustained during the Super Bowl.

Thomas played through a separated left shoulder during the ugly loss to the Seahawks. It hasn't healed enough for him to participate in this week's annual Peyton Manning passing camp at Duke. However, the Broncos have expressed no concern and there's been no talk of surgery, so we'd expect Thomas to be a participant once OTAs get going. He'll carry truly massive upside into the season with Eric Decker now a Jet.

CBS Denver reports Demaryius Thomas played through a separated left shoulder in the Super Bowl.

According to reporter Vic Lombardi, Thomas suffered the injury in the first quarter. Thomas took a thundering hit from should-have-been SB MVP Kam Chancellor on his first catch of the game. If true, it adds some gravitas to Thomas' otherwise-empty Super Bowl record of 13 catches. The fact that Thomas played through the apparent injury speaks to the fact that it should have little effect on his preparation for 2014.

Demaryius Thomas set a new Super Bowl record for receptions (13) in Sunday's blowout loss to Seattle, totaling 118 yards and a touchdown.

Running screens and quick slants, Thomas' first six receptions went for gains of two, six, three, seven, one, and nine. He finally got loose downfield for 19 late in the second quarter, beating Seahawks RCB Byron Maxwell on a comeback jump ball. Demaryius committed the Broncos' third turnover of the game late in the third quarter when Maxwell popped the ball loose at the end of a reception. He did convert Denver's lone score on a 14-yard TD on the last play of the third, high-pointing Peyton Manning's pass over Maxwell. Thomas has posted back-to-back seasons of 90-plus catches, over 1,400 yards, and double-digit touchdowns. He'll be a top-three fantasy wideout pick in 2014.

When the Broncos and Jaguars played in Week 6, Jacksonville's defense limited Denver's offense to 14 points at halftime and the score was 21-19 deep into the third quarter.

It's notable because the Jaguars' defense is run by ex-Seattle DC Gus Bradley. Denver eventually ran away on three late Knowshon Moreno TDs, but there wasn't a defense in football that gave Peyton Manning & Co. more fits this regular season. Seattle plays the same scheme albeit with far superior players. Jacksonville limited Demaryius Thomas to three catches for 78 scoreless yards, and Julius Thomas to a 4-22-1 line.

Richard Sherman lined up at right outside cornerback three times during the entire regular season.

As Mike Clay notes in his Super Bowl Rankings article, Sherman simply isn't a shadow corner. He lines up at left corner 80 percent of the time, and moves to safety on another 15 percent. Thomas, meanwhile, lines up wide to Peyton Manning's left on 48 percent of his snaps. The two stars will face off plenty, but Sherman will see more of Eric Decker. Byron Maxwell will work against Thomas and Walter Thurmond III will look to slow Wes Welker in the slot.

Demaryius Thomas shredded the Patriots for seven catches, 134 yards, and a touchdown in Sunday's AFC Championship game win.

The Patriots made no attempt to hide their early shadowing of Demaryius with Aqib Talib. Thomas proceeded to whip Talib down the left seam for a 29-yard first-quarter gain. Demaryius dropped his next target on a crosser, however, and Talib got injured on the play when Wes Welker drilled him from behind. With Talib sidelined, Thomas ripped off back-to-back gains of 26 and 27 late in the first half. Demaryius added a 15-yard pickup on Denver's opening drive of the second half, and gave his team a 20-3 lead by defeating Alfonzo Dennard's press coverage for a three-yard touchdown. Demaryius yet again toasted Dennard for a 30-yard pluck late in the third quarter. Thomas has been a top-five NFL receiver in back-to-back years, and we still feel like he isn't getting enough credit. He is a dominant force on the perimeter and in terms of run after catch.

Demaryius Thomas (calf) is active and will start Sunday's AFC Championship game against the Patriots.

Thomas was hampered in practice a bit this week but was listed as probable. He's ready to roll in a date with Aqib Talib. Inactive for the Broncos are QB Zac Dysert, RB Ronnie Hillman, DB Marquice Cole, OL Vinston Painter, OL Chris Kuper, TE Joel Dreessen, and DL Sione Fua.
Jan 19 - 1:51 PM

Demaryius Thomas (calf) was limited in Friday's practice.

Thomas is dealing with some tightness in his calf, but it's not a major concern. He's officially listed as probable on the injury report and is fully expected to play in Sunday's AFC Championship Game.

Demaryius Thomas caught eight balls for 54 yards and a touchdown in Denver's Divisional Round win over San Diego.

Demaryius' first grab came on a first-drive quick screen, allowing Thomas to flash his run-after-catch ability and gain nine. No. 88 became the game's first player to score when he boxed out SS Eric Weddle for a two-yard first-quarter touchdown. Each of Demaryius' eight catches went for nine yards or fewer on a day where Denver's offense was balanced and Peyton Manning picked apart San Diego's defense with chain-moving completions. Look for the Broncos to dial up more vertical shot plays in next week's AFC title game versus New England.
Jan 12 - 8:18 PM

Demaryius Thomas caught six passes for 113 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's Week 17 win over the Raiders.

Thomas was targeted six times in the passing game and did all of his damage in the first half before being rested in the third quarter. He got open downfield on a 63-yard strike from Peyton Manning on his first touchdown, and later added a five-yard score that put Manning ahead of Drew Brees for the single-season yardage record. Thomas finishes the 2013 regular season with 92 catches, 1,430 yards, and 14 touchdowns.

Demaryius Thomas (neck) is active for Week 17 against the Raiders.

Thomas practiced in full this week despite being listed as probable on the injury report with a neck issue. Eric Decker (thigh) and Jacob Tamme (knee) are also active. The Broncos inactives are QB Zac Dysert, RB C.J. Anderson, WR Wes Welker, DL Derek Wolfe, CB Kayvon Webster, DT Sione Fua, and C Steve Vallos.

Demaryius Thomas is listed on the Week 16 injury report with a neck issue, but is practicing in full.

Thomas needs 83 yards against the Raiders to reach 1,400 for the second-consecutive season.

Demaryius Thomas lit up the Texans for eight catches, 123 yards, and a touchdown in the Broncos' Week 16 victory.

Thomas whipped Kareem Jackson mercilessly in the first half, recording a 7-112-1 line in the first two quarters alone. He took a backseat as Eric Decker and Julius Thomas both got themselves some in the final half. Thomas has been a top-five fantasy wide receiver throughout the season. The Broncos finish off the regular season against the lowly Raiders in Week 17.
Sun, Dec 22, 2013 04:17:00 PM

Demaryius Thomas (shoulder) is practicing in full for Week 16.

Looking to rebound from a quiet Week 15, Thomas will be a high-end WR1 against a Texans pass defense that isn't nearly as imposing as the numbers would indicate.
