Denver Broncos Injury Update: Demaryius Thomas Returning Against Indianapolis Colts

By Snookie Grawls, Posted: 09/14/16 07:26AM EDT

The Denver Broncos may be getting a big shot in the arm if reports are true that wide receiver Demaryius Thomas could be ready to go against the Indianapolis Colts.

Thomas reportedly suffered a bruised hip against the Carolina Panthers and the wide receiver was set to get an MRI last Monday, ESPN reported. Based on the initial findings, it looks like Thomas was diagnosed to require surgery.

This is one reason as to why a second opinion is being sought for Thomas though head coach Gary Kubiak believes that the wide receiver is looking pretty good. While that should be comforting news, seeing Thomas actually playing is another.

Make or break for Thomas

It is understandable why Thomas is bent on making this season his redemption year. He had a sub-par performance in 2015 and the unfortunate injury is something he doesn’t really need at the moment.

A better indication on that is whether he practices this Wednesday or not. If he does, that could be a good sign that may also see him play this coming Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts.

The next question to ask if he does show up is the condition he is in. Following the hit, Thomas did play through it.

"He came out early, went back in and played well. I think he was sore," Kubiak said via "But he had a couple of days, he's had some good treatment and could have practiced today if we wanted him to, but we'll hold off on Wednesday."

If not against the Colts, perhaps Thomas will be ready for next games. The bottom line here is avoiding hip surgery, which will take the wide receiver out for the entire season, another setback the Denver Broncos will have to deal with.

The Broncos are six-point home favorites against the Colts though they may need to work on their defense. The Panthers were able to convert 60% of their touchdowns the last time out, something which Andrew Luck may want to test this Sunday.
