The Denver Broncos notched a major win over AFC West rival Kansas City on Sunday night, but it came at a big cost.
Denver tight end Julius Thomas went down with a knee injury in the second half as Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports:
UPDATE: Monday, Nov. 18, at 3:45 p.m. ET by Patrick Clarke
Thomas underwent tests on his knee on Monday that revealed a sprain and nothing more, per sources via Brandon Krisztal of The Denver Post:
Denver will travel to Foxborough to play the New England Patriots on Sunday night in Week 12.

Thomas was in the middle of another big day before the injury. He caught three passes for 43 yards and Peyton Manning's only touchdown in the contest.
Receiver Wes Welker is another name on the injury report. The last thing the Broncos needed heading into a matchup with Tom Brady and New England was a rash of injuries. Should Thomas miss time, the likes of Eric Decker and Co. will need to step up in a big way.
