The Denver Post - [Full Article]

Julius Thomas will always remember the 5-yard reception against the Cincinnati Bengals as his first NFL catch, but it also left him with a rookie season filled with frustration.

Because that play, and the right ankle injury that came with it after a tackle by Bengals linebacker Manny Lawson in September, derailed Thomas' season and resulted in him having surgery this past week to repair ligament damage.

The surgery, according to Thomas' father, Greg, was done in Charlotte, N.C., by noted ankle-foot surgeon Dr. Robert Anderson. Thomas will work with the Broncos' medical and training staff in the coming weeks and is a question mark for the opening of training camp.
