That Demaryius Thomas was back at practice earlier this week was a surprise since he was ahead of schedule coming back from a torn Achilles. But then sitting out practice on Friday was also a surprise. Was it to rest his Achilles? No. As it turned out, Thomas broke his finger on a catch during Thursday's practice. He didn't practice Saturday and certainly won't play on Monday, which was never really a question in the first place.
The rest of the injury report, as the Denver Post reports, is as expected. Defensive Marcus Thomas is still not recovered from his strained pectoral muscle and is unlikely to play on Monday. Linebacker D.J. Williams and defensive tackle Ty Warren won't play due to a dislocated elbow and a torn triceps muscle, respectively.
The Oakland Raiders have already ruled out tight end Kevin Boss, safety Mike Mitchell and receiver Louis Murphy. Receivers Derek Hagan and Chaz Schilens are both probably for the game after fully participating in Saturday's practice.
