Fresh off the news desk: D Thomas, the oft-injured wide receiver is down again with an injury that is being described as an "Achilles' injury," according to denverbroncos.com.

The injury is expected to take between six and eight months to heal. This means at a minimum he will be missing yet another training camp, all the preseason and possibly the beginning of the season (provided there is one).

Does this spell disaster for this young man? Is the injury-prone wideout worth the roster spot?

"I have no doubt that Demaryius will overcome this setback," head coach John Fox said in a statement. "He's proven he can handle adversity and will get through this. We look forward to getting Demaryius back on the field as soon as possible."

Where does this leave Denver in its hopes that Thomas was to replace embattled star Brandon Marshall. Does Denver now use one of its high draft picks on a wide receiver? Does Denver now package Thomas and the No. 2 pick for a legit starter on defense? With so many possibilities and very little coming out of Dove Valley, we seem to be left with more questions than answers.

More to come as news comes available.
