Shamarko Thomas returns to practice after eye injury

New, comments

After suffering a detached retina during the Denver Broncos game last week, Shamarko Thomas is back at practice.

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.

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.
