The Broncos selected Demaryius Thomas with the 22nd overall pick of the 2010 draft to give Kyle Orton a big-play deep threat. So far, Thomas' career has been marred by injury. He played in only 10 games a year ago and managed 22 catches for 283 yards and two touchdowns.

Brandon Lloyd emerged as Orton's downfield playmaker (77 catches, 1,448 yards, 11 TDs) in 2010, and that's how 2011 will start, too. Because Thomas, who missed training camp and the preseason while he recovered from February surgery to repair a torn Achilles, has another injury to add to the list: a broken finger suffered during Thursday's practice.

"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, the Denver Post's Mike Klis wrote Sunday morning. "Thomas finished the practice, but tests Friday revealed a break in the finger. He did not practice Friday or Saturday."

Thomas begins his second NFL season with more injuries than career touchdowns. In addition to the torn Achilles and broken finger, he broke a bone in his foot while working out at the 2010 NFL Combine, and missed the final five games of the Broncos' regular season with a bad ankle.

Klis adds that Thomas' latest injury isn't "a huge concern because [he] was not going to play in the first two or three regular-season games as he worked his way back into football shape. He will be able to continue rehabbing his Achilles while he heals from his finger injury."

The Broncos begin their season against the Raiders on Monday night.
