Editor’s update: Adam Schefter had this to say about Thomas’ injury
Broncos operating as if Demaryius Thomas will be able to play through hip injury. But they do want to see him test it pregame to make sure.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 18, 2016
The Denver Broncos are listing Demaryius Thomas as questionable vs. the Indianapolis Colts. Thomas is expected to play through his nagging hip injury, according to NFL.com reporter James Palmer.
Thomas originally suffered the injury in Week 1’s Thursday night game vs. the Carolina Panthers. He left the game briefly before returning, then later admitted it affected his play. That limited Thomas in practice this week, but he did enough on Friday to think he will play Sunday.
The good news for Thomas and the Broncos offense is that the Colts will be without several key defensive players this week, including star cornerback Vontae Davis.
Fantasy Impact: Thomas' injury would normally make him a shaky fantasy play vs. the Colts. However, Davis and other key Colts being out makes starting Thomas an easy call in Week 2.
