Demaryius Thomas suffers broken finger
By Mike Klis<
The Denver Post<
Demaryius Thomas is mending nicely from his Achilles injury.
Itís just now the Broncosí first-round receiver must also recover from a broken finger in his left hand.
Thomas had just returned to practice Monday after missing all of training camp and the preseason to recover from surgery in February to repair a torn Achilles. He got through practice without setback on Monday, Wednesday and most of Thursday until he ran a curl route against cornerback Champ Bailey. The pass got on Thomas quickly and he suffered what he thought was a jammed finger.
Thomas finished the practice Thursday but tests Friday revealed a break in the finger. He did not practice Friday or today.
His latest injury is not a huge concern because Thomas was not going to play in the first two or three regular-season games, anyway, as he worked his way back into football shape. He will be able to continue rehabbing his Achilles while he simultaneously heals from his finger injury.
The bigger concern about Thomasí broken finger is itís been one thing after another since the Broncos made the former Georgia Tech star the No. 22 overall pick in the 2010 draft. Thomas suffered a broken bone in his foot while working out for last yearís combine and the injury caused him to much of his rookie preseason and the season opener at Jacksonville.
He also missed five late-season games with an ankle injury.

You're a freaking moron. It's McDaniel's fault he broke his finger? It's not like he was injured all the time in college.

Broken finger shouldn't be too big of a setback. Still, the guy seems to be made of glass. Hopefully, he's just experiencing a bad streak with injuries and can stay heathly long enough to live up to his tremendous potential.

No, but it was his fault for taking a WR in the first round.

Exactly, he was healthy through college and all of a sudden in the NFL, he's had some back luck and tough breaks when it comes to getting hurt.

It's not like he had ANY sort of injury history going into the draft.

In the flying world we would call him a hanger queen. You see some of the most beautiful planes in the world but they never make it out of the hangar due to being busted or the owner can't afford to fly them. So that's my new moniker for him, hangar queen.

I'm more impressed he is almost back from the achilles tear. So he broke a finger...he's a receiver. Its probably happened before to wr's and will more than likely happen again.

DT was already damaged goods when we drafted him;
McD drafted him while he was recovering from a broken foot.
That was an epic fail. Again, he should've drafted defense with such high pick.

There's a difference between having an injury HISTORY and having a single injury (outside of football no less) before the draft.

Even if there was no injury history it was still a ****ty first round draft pick considering all of the other problems on the team.

... It's McDaniel's fault he broke his finger? It's not like he was injured all the time in college.

True. Now that he's asked to play the receiver position in full, something he never did in college, it's becoming clear he's a scrub and made of glass. It's only the important things required of a receiver - like making breaks off defenders or toward a pass, adjusting his body or fighting for position during the pass, reading defenses to find holes in the zone or adjust his routes, throwing blocks to open running lanes or screening routes, etc. - that he never did in college and has been terrible at since drafted.

Perhaps we should instead ask him to do the same things he did in college, which made McD so high on him; Ask him to partially obscure a CB against the run 80% of the time. The other 20%, ask him to run a 'stop' or 'go' route and look for a jump ball to make use of his size - without requiring any skill. Maybe then he won't keep getting injured and might again put up the gawdy yrds/rec numbers that blind statisticians trumpeted before and since his drafting.

It's easy to overlook a few missteps if you just keep reminding yourself that Cutler would probably still be here if it weren't for Bowlen hiring McD.

No, but busts are defined by their inability to proform at the place they where drafted in. So far DT is busting. As for the McDip$h!t, something were his fault and some were not, but all failure stop at the top.

well that's because they are blinded by his potential and physical ability.

Unfortunately, if you look at him for what he actually is, he is a stubborn bone headed crybaby who blows it in big games.

If he matures than I will agree with you that it was a huge mistake, but here on earth, in the real world, it's no real loss at this point.

He was only traded once. For John Engelberger... while nothing spectacular, he was a serviceable lineman on that 2005 team. Middlebrooks was released by the 49ers and the Broncos re-signed him.
