Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas told reporters on Wednesday that injuries almost ended his NFL career before it even started.
Thomas broke his foot while he was getting ready for the NFL Scouting Combine and he tore his Achilles during his second NFL season.
“Two years straight that I was injured, and you know that was tough,” Thomas said Wednesday via NFL ATL. “When I was coming back off my Achilles (injury) I broke my pinkie (finger) and I was out another six weeks, I used to second-guess myself sometimes and see if football was really for me. I used to talk to my uncle, my dad and my mom.”
Recovering from a serious injury like a torn Achilles isn;t a joke. It’s great to see Thomas flourishing.
