Broncos' Demaryius Thomas Sits Out Friday Practice

Just one day after being a full participant in practice, Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas sat out Friday's practice, reports Lindsay Jones of the Denver Post. Head coach John Fox has not spoken with the media on Friday yet, but he will likely update Thomas' condition.

Jones tweeted that she believes this might have been a rest day for Thomas since he is coming off a torn Achilles tendon. Whatever his condition, it is still unlikely that Thomas will be game-ready for Monday's season opener against the Oakland Raiders.

When he does return, Thomas will have plenty of competition to catch balls from Kyle Orton. Brandon Lloyd and Eddie Royal are the top two wide receivers and fellow second-year receiver Eric Decker is coming on strong. Matthew Willis is the other wide receiver on the roster.
