Thomas had to be helped off the field in the waning moments of the second quarter.

Thomas was targeted six times by Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning in the first half, recording five receptions for 58 yards before going down clinching his knee.

This injury is terrible news for lots of fantasy owners as Thomas is in the midst of a career year. He has 50 receptions for more than 800 yards and four touchdowns in 2012 and was Denver's leading receiver by yardage through the first nine weeks of the season.
