Denver Broncos safety Shamarko Thomas suffered a detached retina during the teams 29-17 victory over the Washington Redskins last Friday. However, by Saturday morning his vision had returned enabling Thomas to get back out onto the practice field.
Shamarko Thomas said he had blurred vision in left eye. Wasn’t poked or anything like that to cause it — he is not sure how it happened. He went through tests and by Saturday morning was fine, which allowed him to practice today.— Andrew Mason (@MaseDenver) August 27, 2018
Thomas, 27, will be in the mix to compete for one of the final 53-man roster spots and figures to get some playing time in the Broncos final preseason contest against the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday.
The former fourth-round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft spent his first four seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers before bouncing around in stints with the Buffalo Bills, New York Jets, and Indianapolis Colts. In his career, he has 62 tackles and a forced fumble with no interceptions.
