Thought this merited it's own thread - either he's being rushed back (wish I find doubtful considering how well the reserve WRs played in preseason) or this is a great sign of his recovery that the team expects him back in the first 6 weeks.

Sort of, basically when your 53-man roster is finalized at the deadline (which is today) if you have a player on the PuP list than he cannot play the first 6 weeks of the season.

Considering they had Demaryius on the list the entire preseason and had WRs like Riley, Britt and Goodwin that had strong showings in the preseason - the fact they didn't place him on the PuP list means they have to KNOW he'll be ready to go SOON. Otherwise they could've kept him on the PuP list and kept around one of the other WRs and made the switch in Week 6. The fact they didn't do this tells me they've got to expect him back in the 1st month of the season - no reason to take up a roster spot (of a position that plays special teams usually too) otherwise.

WR Demaryius Thomas has been cleared to practice. Thomas had been expected to be placed on the PUP list and not practice until Week 6. But GM Brian Xanders said that Thomas' preparation during the lockout and over the last five weeks doing explosive moves on his surgically-repaired Achilles removed doubt. "He's ready to go," the GM said. Broncos RapidReports

I thought I had heard it was only a partial tear but Doc can answer this better than me. I can say he's been seen running sprints at Dove Valley and while he wasn't cutting and nobody had a stopwatch to him - you wouldn't know he's hurt.

Xanders says he's been cutting fine and is ready to start practicing.

There'd be no reason to though, they could PuP list him and wait just 6 weeks which isn't that long at all. They're not going to throw the ball much and they had kids like Riley and Goodwin whose preseason play and special teams ability easily merited being kept around for a few weeks. They'll start working him in this week, if he's ready to go like Xanders says - it would be great news - not just for this year but I was more concerned in his long-term recovery. Sounds like he should make a 100% recovery (at least I hope).

All the info that EFX and Greek has from watching and working with him every day.

If I remember right, when his injury was reported, it was believed that he could be ready by the 1st or 2nd week if he recovered and conditioned properly. Apparently, this best case scenario has come to pass.

It was the naysayers who were talking that it would be mid-season at best and more likely 1 year to fully recover.

also I don't think it was as bad as first reported.

We have enough talent at WR that we can easily afford to ease him back in. He's a weapon that any team would welcome, but the last thing I want is a setback.

Obviously, dont have him return kicks. ****ing retarded.

Im hoping him, Decker amd Royal can be our WRs of the future. Whenever they ship Orton out of town(if they do) they should ship Lloyd with him. As much as I like Lloyds play on the field I still think he cares only about himself. He would rather go 3-13 with 80 catches than 10-6 and 60 catches. Thats just my opinion though, I bet if Tebow started Lloyd would want out.

I don't get that vibe at all. Lloyd seems like a very smart guy in his interviews. As such, he realizes that the essences of sports is winning.

Just because a guy has a few injuries early in hi career doesn't mean his career is going to be filled with injuries. There have been many players in all of sports that have had early injuries only to have long lasting careers.

I don't know what's going to happen next year with Lloyd but I do know that around mid season this year when Thomas should be in prime football shape, and if none of the other WR's get hurt, having Thomas, Lloyd, Royal and Decker make an awesome group and maybe our strongest position on the team.

Above is the first of two post cut down interviews with Xman which are worth watching.

As Kaylore noted, he gave the awesome news that DT has been cleared for full practice!!! :-)

He said Thomas worked extremely hard rehabbing himself during the lockout and combined with the last 5 weeks of very focused and intense rehab with the docs and staff is ahead of expectations and is running very well. Said he has a real burst and is twisting and jumping well too so the docs all gave him the green light for full practice.

He will start this week running scout team routs and get back in true football shape. He's in great over all shape now, but just needs to get the quads and legs up to football speed and get used to that and the confidence in real contact and running routs again. It may take two or three weeks before he is in games, but hopefully sooner said Xanders!

Best freakin news in a while ... This means a chance for real production this year from DT as he gets up to speed and worked back in the system. Even if it isn't until the last half of the season before he can really settle in and feel 100% ...This is awesome!

In game three run him maybe 15 plays or so and gradually get him back in sync.. Can you imagine the jumbo 4 wide red zone receiver package now with Lloyd, DT, Decker and JT ...

That will be load for just about any DB group to cover that's for sure.. Could even go five wide with either Virgil Green or Royal added in there and have all kinds of options....

Great news! :peace:

Come to think of it that 4 or 5 wide jumbo package with Tebow at QB inside the 10 yd like is about as close to a gimme 6 as were likely to get! All the DB's would have to stay back to cover and Tebow can roll out and either waltz it in or toss it to the wide open receiver if the defense comes after him...

i still think we should have PUP listed the guy. i like that he is ready to go, but i would just feel safer considering his somewhat sketchy past with the injuries if the team take more time with the injury.

also, if he is unable to go, i still say this team should look at moving Virgil Green outside to WR instead of TE. has more size and strength than DT combined with about the same speed.

imagine a 6'5" 250 pounder manhandling 6ft 200lbs Corners. it would be a mismatch of epic proportions.

Thats just my opinion though, I bet if Tebow started Lloyd would want out.

if this were the 2005 version of Lloyd where he was younger, immature and still not living up to his potential i would have the same feeling that he is just here for the money and notoriety that comes with being a top flight receiver. but over the last 2 seasons even in which he didn't even really play in 1 of those seasons, he has shown maturity, class, integrity and looks to be a guy who wants to win, and if he believed Tebow was his best shot at winning he would back him easily, but he believes in Orton as do most of the players.

Imagine DT on one side and VG and Decker or Lloyd in WR slots on the other side with JT at true TE!! Now thats a nice vision to have. :-)

Am sure they will take it easy with DT this year, its a position of strength and they wont push too fast I'm sure.

You nailed it.

This team is not concerned about winning.

I'd like for someone to tell me the last time that the Denver Broncos were associated with winning...just so we can get a little perspective here. This franchise has the wrong players in leadership positions. Think about it...Brandon Lloyd? Kyle Orton? DJ Williams? What the heck have any of those guys ever won? Are any of them associated with winning? The only two proven winners on the team are past their primes (Champ and Dawkins), and the kid who plays like a winner is on the bench.

I don't trust a dang word these guys say until they actually start winning. They've been doing an awful lot of empty talking for an awfully long time.

Its still hard to believe that Orton has such enmity for the fans in Denver when he has delivered absolutely nothing except for a handful of the most miserable, humiliating losses in franchise history. But hey, he's earning Lloyd a paycheck, so there's that.

My issue is with Pat Bowlen.

The point I was crediting you with was the comment about Denver not having a winning attitude. It went south when Shanahan drafted Cutler than started him over Plummer. The last time the team played with any heart was the last game Plummer started. Granted Plummer played poorly but that was because he couldn't handle Shannny drafting a QB the draft after the Broncos were in the AFCC.

Tebow is that same kind of player. That swashbuckling, win at all cost fighter who will go down swinging. Orton is just a guy floating along looking for the next check. He's not trying to leave a mark on history. He's not trying to carry a team to the playoffs. I'm not sure that winning really matters all that much to him.

Orton is a symbol for the Broncos' recent commitment to mediocrity (or worse).

There's no such thing as a "winning attitude". People like to get caught up in an over-romanticization of football. Teams win games through coaching, preparation/statistical analysis, work ethic, football talent, football IQ and some luck.

I'm not sure why Plummer couldn't handle having a QB drafted. His limitations were readily apparent, his work ethic was irritatingly poor (to Shanny) he had played terribly in the AFCCG and followed that up by playing even more terribly for the first half of the 2006 season. Denver owed him nothing. Shanahan had personally rescued him from the abyss that was Arizona and gave him what were the best years of his career. For him to still make critical comments of Shanny and Denver represents the height of arrogance and ungratefulness. Perhaps he should have been left to rot in Arizona.

I would think that way too were I not able to see Shanny had lost it and had many flaws even when he had it.

#1 receiver in the making, has all the attributes. I hope he comes back only when he is ready

First Boomhauer claims Thomas has never been fast or quick, & now his speed is “about the same“ as the TE Virgil Green? Don't think so.

On db.com, they had a video of DT running routes and catching balls. He looked like he was running at full speed and making some nice cuts.

I am so pleased he's even at that point in his recovery process. Can't wait to see him scoring touchdowns this year.
