Julius Thomas ruled inactive for Broncos vs. Patriots


As the Denver Broncos gear up for their big Sunday Night Football meeting against the New England Patriots, they have learned that they will need to search for a win without the services of starting tight end Julius Thomas, who has become a favorite target of Peyton Manning.

Thomas suffered an injured knee during last week’s win over the division rival Kansas City Chiefs and was listed as questionable and now we know that he will not be suiting up.

Without Thomas in the line up, expect to see more of Joel Dreessen.
