Julius Thomas injury: Broncos tight end not looking good to play vs. Patriots

New, comments

Denver Broncos tight end Julius Thomas is currently 50-50 to play Sunday Night.

Mile High Report has learned that it is not looking good for Denver Broncos tight end Julius Thomas to play tonight in New England.

Granted at this point we have quite awhile before Sunday night, but MHR is not alone in these reports:

And:

Thomas has been banged up this entire week, being listed as limited in both Thursday and Friday's practices.

If he cannot go, Joel Dreessen will fill in for Thomas immediately, which will create a boost to the Denver run game. Tight end Jacob Tamme can split out when the play call requires it.
