A new regime is in place, but the same old problems keep appearing for the Denver Broncos.
Vic Lombardi of CBS4 in Denver just reported that Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas injured his achilles tendon during a workout in Georgia today. His injury is reported to be a tear, but the severity is not yet known. If it is fully torn, Thomas’ 2011 season could be in deep trouble regardless of developments with the CBA.
So what does this mean for the Broncos? With Eddie Royal out for up to six months coming off hip surgery and now this, the Broncos’ deepest and strongest position suddenly finds itself a little shorthanded.
Aside from Brandon Lloyd, this latest injury most certainly will open up a door for Eric Decker to finally get his shot on offense instead of returning kicks.
How big an impact does this have on the Broncos’ offense? Is it too early to label Thomas ‘injury plagued?’
