ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - The Denver Broncos' deep wide receiver corps has taken another hit with word that last year's top pick, Demaryius Thomas, tore an Achilles during an offseason workout in Atlanta.
Thomas, the first receiver selected in last year's draft, was working out at his offseason home when he was injured, according to CBS4 in Denver. The extent wasn't known, but if it's a full tear, his entire 2011 season would be in jeopardy.
Last week, slot receiver Eddie Royal had hip surgery that could sideline him for up to six months, although the Broncos are hopeful he'll be back by late May.
Neither Thomas nor his agent, Todd France, responded to messages from The Associated Press and the Broncos didn't respond, either.
