Default Julius Thomas has ankle surgery

Julius Thomas undergoes ankle surgery
Posted by Evan Silva on April 8, 2012, 6:43 PM EDT
Richard Smith, Julius Thomas AP

Broncos fourth-round pick Julius Thomas, a basketball player turned tight end, struggled to get on the field during his rookie season. With Denver adding Jacob Tamme and Joel Dreessen at his position this offseason, Thomas is facing long odds for playing time in 2012.

Thomas hit another roadblock last week when he underwent surgery to repair ligaments in his ankle, according to Jeff Legwold of the Denver Post. The surgery figures to sideline, or at least limit Thomas during post-draft Organized Team Activities.

Thomas finished his first NFL season with one reception for five yards, appearing in just five games. He should make the Broncos’ 53-man roster, but will be hard pressed for significant snaps.

This is what kept him out most of last year. I heard rumors the doctors misdiagnosed and he should of had surgery last year to correct the issue

yeah
not sure why people are surprised by this

he played on a bum ankle last year electing not to have surgery

this may hurt his development, but luckily we have Dreeson and Tamme on the roster to transition Thomas in when he is ready

It's hard to deny the kid's fluidity and athleticism, but then again the same thing could be said for Wesley Duke. Hope he recovers and contributes, but I'm glad Elway and Co, took the necessary steps to upgrade the position via free-agency. It would be nice to pick up a late round draft pick at the position as well, considering that Virgil Green is most likely done. I wouldn't mind big Michael Egnew if he's sitting there in the 4th round, but my guess is he's gone before that.

That's a bummer.
I was looking forward to see how he would fit in a more pass-oriented offense...
It now looks like he wouldn't've played a lot anyway.
With Dreesen and Tamme he's definitely got his work cut out...

Not much time was wasted however because the Post just took all the old Richard Quinn articles and did a find/replace in MS Word.

I used Julius Thomas a lot in Madden. Otherwise I wouldn't care.

Duke was at least productive in an actual game for a play...
