Week 14 Fantasy Football Playoffs Injury Report: Julius Thomas (P)

Injuries Around the NFL

The Skinny: Denver Broncos TE Julius Thomas was a full participant in practice on both Thursday and Friday and looks to be in line to make his return to the lineup this week after missing the last two weeks with a sprained knee. Thomas was a late scratch last week after his knee stiffened up on him. Thomas is listed as probable.

The Injury: Thomas gave us a scare last week when he had a minor setback on the Saturday prior to the game when his knee stiffened up on him, making him much more unsure with his movements while testing it prior to kickoff. It looks like the extra few days of rest and treatment early in the week did him a lot of good, as he was able to fully participate in practice on both Thursday and Friday. Usually when a guy can get back in fold for two straight full practices it means he will play and be relatively healthy for this time of the year.

The Prognosis: Thomas looks like he’ll make his return this week and should be a big boost to the Broncos offense. It looks like it’s time to get him back in your lineup just in time for the all-important first week of the fantasy football playoffs.
