ENGLEWOOD – Demaryius Thomas’ shoulder injury wasn’t enough to keep him from returning in the second half Thursday, and it likely won’t be a significant problem heading into the Dec. 16 showdown with the Baltimore Ravens.
“It doesn’t appear to be anything real serious,” Broncos coach John Fox said Friday. “Hopefully he’ll be ready Monday when we reconvene.”
Thomas had an ice pack on his shoulder in the locker room after the Broncos’ 26-13 win at O.co Coliseum in Oakland.
“It’s sore,” he said then. “I tried to come in ahead of time, and get some work on it. I’ll be fine. As long as I can play, I’m good.”
Thomas had three catches for 52 yards after the injury and finished the night with 83 yards on five receptions overall.
He was plagued by injuries in the first two seasons of his career, missing time in the offseason, preseason and regular season with ankle, foot, Achilles tendon and finger injuries. But since he made his 2011 debut after missing the first five games with a fractured pinkie, Thomas has played in 26 consecutive games, including playoffs.
