Free-agent wide receiver Demaryius Thomas suffered minor injuries after he rolled over his vehicle in downtown Denver early Saturday morning.

Oscar Contreras of Denver7 reported Thomas was one of three people riding in the vehicle when he lost control, and the car rolled into a "grassy median." Neither of the other two passengers were seriously injured.

Thomas and the two passengers were transported to the hospital. 

Thomas, 31, played eight-and-a-half seasons with the Broncos before being traded to the Houston Texans at the 2018 trade deadline. The Texans released Thomas on Tuesday.

Police said they do not believe Thomas was under the influence of drugs or alcohol. An investigation into the crash is ongoing.

Thomas is currently rehabbing a torn left Achilles he suffered in December. He previously tore his right Achilles before the 2011 season and took six months to recover.

Thomas has made five Pro Bowl teams in nine seasons, recording 688 receptions for 9,330 yards and 62 touchdowns.
