Julius Thomas is ‘iffy at best’ for Broncos vs. Chiefs


The Denver Broncos are preparing for their second match up with the Kansas City Chiefs in three weeks, but they could be without one of their top offensive weapons. Tight end Julius Thomas has been limited all week in practice with a knee injury and his chances of suiting up for today’s game don’t appear to be great.

From Adam Schefter of ESPN:

Being without Thomas would be a big setback for the Broncos offense, who is already banged up.

Thomas has become a favorite target of quarterback Peyton Manning, so Manning will need to rely more heavily on his wide receivers in hostile territory at Arrowhead Stadium.

There is still a chance that Thomas could suit up if he looks good in pre-game warm ups, but it is not looking good for the Broncos and fantasy owners.

    I hope he rests for the next couple weeks. Denver will be fine without him against the Chiefs, but it would be nice to see him back for the Chargers game. They’re the last remaining challenge on the schedule. It would be dumb to play him in KC in a game that Denver is going to win easily.
