There were two very significant updates for the Denver Broncos on Tuesday.
First, the NFL Network's James Palmer revealed the reason for the absence of superstar Demaryius Thomas from organized team activities, citing "personal reasons" that were keeping the wide receiver at home instead of his team.
Of course when it comes to situations like this you always hope that it's nothing serious, and whatever is keeping Thomas back we hope it resolves itself quickly and in a positive fashion.
Palmer also added an update on the injury to linebacker Shaq Barrett who also has been absent from organized team activities. While the injury is expected to keep Barrett out for the duration of the offseason Palmer is reporter that is expected to be ready to go come the start of the regular season, which is of course terrific news for the Broncos organization.
