The Patriots are placing WR Demaryius Thomas on the active/PUP list to begin training camp. That means he won't take part in on-field drills initially. It's no surprise, given that Thomas suffered a torn Achilles' tendon in Week 16. We'll be curious to see how soon Thomas can make his way into camp workouts and whether he can avoid the regular-season PUP list. Landing on that would mean missing at least 6 games.

The Patriots have signed WR Demaryius Thomas to a 1-year deal that could be worth "up to" $6 million, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Thomas is currently rehabbing a torn Achilles suffered in late December that has his availability for the start of the 2019 campaign in doubt. He seemed to be in decline even before that injury, posting his fewest yards per game (45.1) since his rookie season. That said, this is just about the best landing spot Thomas could have hoped for. The Patriots have lost over 220 targets from last year and have just Phillip Dorsett, Bruce Ellington and Maurice Harris sitting behind Julian Edelman on the WR depth chart. If Thomas can get healthy, he has a good shot of emerging as the #2 WR.

WR Demaryius Thomas is currently in custody in Colorado on vehicular assault charges. Pro Football Talk notes that Colorado defines vehicular assault as "driving recklessly or under the influence of alcohol and causing serious bodily injury to another person." Thomas was involved in a 1-car accident on February 18 that reportedly caused serious injury to a female passenger. We'll see where this goes. Thomas was released by Houston a couple of weeks ago after his 2018 campaign ended with a torn Achilles.

The Texans have released WR Demaryius Thomas. It was a no-brainer move with Thomas set to make $14 million in 2019. Now 31 and coming off a torn Achilles, DT isn't worth nearly that much coin. He'll probably need to prove he's recovered from that injury before landing a job elsewhere. Houston has a young, talented WR trio in place in DeAndre Hopkins, Will Fuller and Keke Coutee.

Texans WR Demaryius Thomas will miss the rest of the season with a ruptured left Achilles, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's a devastating injury for the 31-year-old and makes him questionable for the start of the 2019 campaign. It's also a big loss for a Texans team thin at WR. We'll see if they get rookie Keke Coutee (hamstring) back for Week 17. DeAndre Carter and Vyncint Smith are Houston's other WRs.

Injury Predictor

Thomas hasn't missed a game since 2011, his 2nd season. He has cracked 140 targets and 80 receptions in each of the 6 years since, falling short of 1,000 receiving yards for the 1st time in that span last year. The veteran could be a value pick in fantasy football drafts this summer, now that the Broncos have spent on a QB (Case Keenum in free agency) and appear ready to move Thomas around the formation more.
