After spending nearly his entire rookie year dealing with foot and ankle injuries, CBS 4 in Denver is reporting that Broncos’ receiver Demaryius Thomas suffered a torn Achilles’ tendon while working out on Wednesday.
CBS4 Sports has learned, Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas has suffered a torn achilles tendon. While the extent of the injury, either a partial or full tear, has not been revealed, the Broncos tweeted late Thursday that Thomas’ recovery would take 6 to 8 months.
As CBS 4 points out, this injury is yet another blow to Denver’s receiving corps. After having surgery on his hip, Eddie Royal could be sidelined for up to six months and now Thomas’ health is in question. Chances are this injury could set up yet another lost season for Thomas, who has loads of talent but simply can’t catch a break when it comes to injuries.
The Broncos have too many holes to fill on both sides of the ball to take another receiver in the first round. But who is Kyle Orton or Tim Tebow going to throw to? If Tebow winds up being the full-time starter, he’ll need more than Knowshon Moreno (who is also injury-prone) around him to succeed. It’s only February and things already look bleak in Denver.
