Several reports have confirmed that Demaryius Thomas tore his achilles tendon while working out Thursday. The Broncos, for their part, have officially called it an "injury" to his achilles via Twitter:
Demaryius Thomas suffered an injury to his Achilles tendon on Wed. while working out in Ga. His recovery is expected to take 6-8 months.
Six to eight months? I'm no Ponderosa or Doc Bear (our local resident docs), but doesn't this sort of injury take just a wee bit longer than this to heal? Luckily, the Broncos are filled to the brim at wide receiver. It's just too bad such a promising player is going through so many injuries early in his career. Thanks to Ponderosa for being on this story so quickly!
