Thomas didn't receive a tote or catch a pass in Week 2 against the Steelers, recording just six offensive snaps. While Thomas scored a touchdown in Week 1, it came on one of only seven offensive snaps on the day. He could see some more playing time down the road if injuries pile up, but there's nothing right now pointing to him seeing significant action on a weekly basis.
Thomas caught one pass on two targets Sunday against the Chargers, a shovel pass that resulted in a touchdown from one yard out. Thomas only played seven snaps total on offense in the opener and doesn't figure to play a ton this season overall, but he remains a valuable depth option and special teams player for the Chiefs.
Thomas (lower leg) caught one pass for five yards and returned one kick 36 yards in Saturday's 27-20 preseason loss to the Bears. Thomas had limited action in his preseason debut after missing the first two with a lower leg injury, logging just four offensive snaps and eight on special teams. The fifth-year pro will be low on the Chiefs' wideout depth chart to start the season.
Thomas (lower leg) did not play in Thursday's preseason opener against the Texans. Thomas continues to work his way back from a lower-leg injury that dates back to last season. He was supposedly nearing contact work as training camp begin, but there's been no indication since that time that he has done so. When healthy, Thomas should be a candidate to serve as a special-teams player and a reserve receiver again in 2018, though the addition of Sammy Watkins this offseason pushes him further down the depth chart.
Thomas (leg) did some drills Monday and is preparing to ramp up to contact work, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports. Thomas broke his right tibia Week 17 last season and was held out of minicamp and OTAs this spring. He'll likely be absent or limited for the early portion of training camp, but he apparently has a shot to be ready for 11-on-11 work at some point in August. The speedy 25-year-old has 61 catches, 28 carries, 71 punt returns and 48 kickoff returns through four NFL seasons.
