Despite numerous reports to the contrary, Thomas didn't suffer a separated shoulder during the Super Bowl and has been working out with Peyton Manning at Duke University, the Denver Post reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Thomas apparently missed the first day of Manning's offseason workout, which led to the speculation that the wideout was still hurt. It's unclear how much Thomas is working out with Manning, but he'll likely take it easy until he's completely healthy. Thomas is a free agent after this season and could garner a big contract, if he can show that he's over the shoulder injury. Coming off two huge seasons with Manning under center, Thomas is averaging 93 catches for 1,432 yards and 12 touchdowns over that span.
Thomas' shoulder separation he suffered in the Broncos' Super Bowl loss to the Seahawks two months ago is keeping him from joining his fellow receivers at Duke University for Peyton Manning's offseason workouts this week, ESPN.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The injury occurred on a vicious hit from Seahawks strong safety Kam Chancellor early in Super Bowl XLVIII. Thomas could still be limited in some of the OTA work in the weeks to come, but the Broncos don't expect issues when training camp opens.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Thomas' first year with Peyton Manning under center could hardly have gone better. Thomas led the league's 100-target receivers in efficiency with 10.2 yards per look, thanks to 15.3 YPC and a 67-percent catch rate. Thomas was also fourth in red-zone targets (six of his 21 chances there went for scores), despite teammate Eric Decker leading the league with 25 red-zone looks and 12 red-zone scores. At 6-3, 229, and with 4.38 40 speed, Thomas possesses elite physical skills, and he put those to good use, with five catches of 40-plus (T-9th) and 29 catches of 20 yards or more, second only to Calvin Johnson’s 40. The addition of Wes Welker this offseason could cut into everyone’s targets, but there's reason to think it will impact Decker and the team's tight ends more severely than Thomas who runs routes further down the field. Moreover, while Welker and Decker are quality players, neither is a gamebreaker in Thomas' mold, a fact of which Manning is undoubtedly aware.

2012

After missing the first five games of 2011 while recovering from Achilles’ tendon surgery, Thomas quickly became Tim Tebow’s top target and big-play option, averaging 17.2 yards per catch and hauling in four catches of 40-plus yards. Thomas also lit up the Steelers’ top-ranked pass defense in the playoffs, catching four balls for 204 yards and a score. But Tebow’s inaccuracy cost Thomas as he caught just 46 percent of the passes thrown his way. That should change in 2012 with Peyton Manning under center for the Broncos. At 6-3, 229, and having run a 4.38 40 at the NFL Combine, Thomas possess all the physical tools to be a top-tier NFL receiver. Thomas’ hands were inconsistent, however, (six drops on just 69 targets), and he’s not nearly as polished as the Marvin Harrisons and Reggie Waynes with whom Manning is accustomed to working. Moreover, Thomas had surgery on his pinkie in March and at press time hadn’t yet had a chance to practice with Manning, giving teammate Eric Decker a head start. But Thomas is the player with the higher ceiling, and assuming Manning is completely healthy, and Thomas shows he can make his living on timing and route-running (and not just broken plays as he did with Tebow), we could be looking at a top-10 receiver.

2011

Drafted to be a replacement for Brandon Marshall, the 6-3, 229-pound Thomas missed most training camp with a foot injury and battled ankle problems for much of the season before tearing his Achilles’ tendon in early January. Somehow, he managed a couple productive games and posted averages of 7.3 YPT and 12.9 YPC. Thomas runs very well for a big man – 4.38 40 – and he’s a terrific athlete. He won’t be back until the season’s second half, but once he’s up to speed, he could find himself starting opposite Brandon Lloyd before too long.

2010

Drafted in the first round to replace the departed Brandon Marshall, Thomas’ physical tools — 6-3, 229, 4.38 40 speed and big-time athleticism — are top shelf. The question, at least in the short term, is whether he’s polished enough to contribute at the NFL level. Thomas played in an offense where he was essentially required to get open deep, so his route running skills have yet to be seriously tested. On the other hand, the wide receiver depth chart in Denver is wide open with only Eddie Royal and Jabbar Gaffney competing for the two starting slots. Just keep in mind Thomas could be a little behind heading into the summer, as he sat out spring OTAs with a broken foot. He should be ready for the start of training camp, however.
