Thomas (ankle) caught three of seven targets for 20 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to Oakland.
Three defenders were draping over Thomas on his nine-yard touchdown snag in the fourth quarter. The play was reminiscent of many of the 24 touchdowns Thomas scored in his final two seasons in Denver - a physically dominant Thomas overpowering those covering him. Things haven't come as easy in Jacksonville and the hobbled Thomas recorded just one touchdown and no red-zone targets in his first four games of 2016. Sunday showed signs of change as Thomas was targeted thrice in the red-zone, including his late-game score. Expect a Jacksonville offense struggling to put points on the board to look to Thomas for answers more in the coming weeks.
Thomas (ankle) is active for Sunday's Week 7 tilt versus the Raiders.
The veteran tight end's ankle ailment popped up on Thursday's injury report, yet it apparently wasn't serious enough to warrant what would have been yet another stint on the inactive list. Thomas missed two games earlier in the season with an elbow injury, but will tough it out against a vulnerable Raiders defense Sunday.
Thomas surfaced on
Thomas (elbow) managed just two catches for 28 yards on four targets Sunday in Chicago.
Thomas was back in the lineup after being out since Week 4, but wasn't very impactful while playing with a protective brace. The tight end now has 13 catches for 176 yards and a touchdown through four games played, and could become a bigger red zone threat moving forward given his combination of size and athleticism.
