The Denver Broncos won’t likely need tight end Julius Thomas in Week 14 against the Tennesee Titans, but it looks like they’ll have him on the field anyway as Thomas was upgraded today and ‘practiced in full’ according to Mike Klis.
Thomas, who missed Week 13 as he recovers from a knee injury was questionable heading into the Week 14 matchup though did not appear to have any issues during practice and looks to be a go for Sunday:
Julius Thomas (knee), Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (shoulder) full participation in practice today.
Of course, there is always potential for a setback, especially coming off injury so the team will see how Thomas responds after his full practice today which will likely be followed by a full practice on Friday, but things are looking positive as of this moment.
Thomas likely could have played in Week 13 if needed, but with the Broncos all but locked into a playoff spot the team would rather make sure their start tight end is healthy come the postseason.
