Dumervil, who had season-ending surgery in August to repair a torn pectoral tendon as well as some muscle damage, is progressing well in his rehab program.

The rehab schedule for injuries such as Dumervil's typically begins two to four weeks after the surgery. For about a month after surgery, mobility in the arm is severely limited by a sling. Trainers call this "protecting" the injury.

In Week 4 after the surgery, the player begins light rehab work. Three months after the surgery, he is doing much more rehab work. After three months, the player can return to a more normal workout schedule. Getting to a "return to play" level of fitness and strength comes four to six months after the surgery.

Dumervil is just past the two-month mark in his rehab. At this point, he's working to regain a full range of motion as well as working to gradually regain strength and flexibility in the large muscle that was injured.

Dumervil, last year's NFL leader in sacks with 17, is at the Broncos' Dove Valley headquarters every day working with the team's training and strength staff. He has attended most of the Broncos' home games.

Injured players usually do most of their rehab in the morning, when the rest of the team is in position meetings for the upcoming game. Injured players often say rehab work makes them feel like an outsider because they come and go in the locker room before most of their teammates are out of meetings. But the Broncos say Dumervil has been as involved as he can be and has a lot of friends on the team.

No injured players made the trip to London. They remained behind to continue their rehab work. That group included Dumervil, safety Darcel McBath, linebacker Wesley Woodyard and cornerback Perrish Cox.

Dumervil was one of the things Shanahan did very well, can't believe he was a 4th round pick.

Wish him luck, he will have to push it hard once it healed to regain all his strength

At least he'll have an extra year to do it...

Its kind of sad when the Broncos' regular season is so pathetic that its more interesting to follow Doom's rehabilitation.

With the signing of merriman, we can afford to take it slow with Doom

Weird pic of him, he looks narrow shouldered and a little doughy. Did he look "better" in person?

Hopefully he's been watching tape of guys like Ware and trying to improve his all-round game as an OLB. As a pure pass rusher he's one of the very, very best in the league, if he can develop the weaker parts of his game he could be one of the best overall defensive players in the league.

Looking forward to seeing him on the field next year, hopefully at 100%. He's really missed out there.

That's weird seeing as Thomas is as big or bigger than Marshall.

Bay Bay is listed at 6'3, Marshall at 6'4. Marshall is definently wider too.
