It’s still a bit too early to tell, but it appears that Broncos tight end Julius Thomas could come down to a game decision for Sunday night’s game against the New England Patriots. This is discouraging news for fantasy owners as Thomas has solidified the number two tight end spot behind Jimmy Graham.
The good news for fantasy owners is that Thomas made an appearance at practice on Thursday, so things may not be as cloudy as expected. Owners can breathe a slight sigh of relief now that they know Thomas was at practice Thursday.
Sunday’s game against New England is going to be quite meaningful as both teams are amongst the best in the AFC. The Broncos will need Thomas present and playing against a tough Patriots team that is coming off of a controversial loss to the Carolina Panthers.
Keep an eye out for upcoming injury reports on Julius Thomas and a have a backup tight end ready to go in his place.
