According to his Twitter page, Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas is having surgery on his torn Achilles tendon this Monday morning. He is expected to take six to eight months to fully recover from this injury that was sustained while doing an offseason workout in Atlanta, Ga.
If the 2011 NFL season does take place, Thomas could start training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) List. Should he remain on that list to start the regular season, Thomas would be unable to return to the team until after the sixth game of the season. The team then has three-weeks to determine if he can be active or if he should be placed on season-ending injured reserve.
