Demaryius Thomas injury: Broncos WR's shoulder shouldn't be an issue

Streeter Lecka

The Denver receiver is expected to practice next week.

The Denver Broncos leading receiver should be ready for next week's showdown with the Baltimore Ravens, as Demaryius Thomas' shoulder injury should not keep him out of practices next week:

Thomas injured his shoulder on his second catch of the game against the Oakland Raiders on Thursday, and had to leave the game to be examined in the locker room.

The Broncos receiver has enjoyed a breakout season in his third year in the NFL, becoming Peyton Manning's go-to receiver in 2012. Thomas has already doubled his production from 2011, putting up 1,197 yards receiving and eight touchdowns in 13 games, catching 74 balls so far on the year.

Denver locked up the AFC West on Sunday and will play for seeding next Sunday against a tough Ravens team in a battle that will go a long way to determine whether the Broncos have a first-round bye or not.
