Patriots wide receiver Demaryius Thomas has resumed sprinting

Demaryius Thomas, Patriots

There has been a ton of uncertainty surrounding Demaryius Thomas since he joined the New England Patriots. On Thursday, Thomas took a stride forward in his recovery and resumed sprinting.

So far in training camp, there has been no timetable for Thomas’ return to the team amid his rehab from a torn Achilles he suffered in 2018. When it comes to an Achilles, being able to run comfortably is a positive achievement.

Earlier this offseason, New England signed Thomas to provide some aid at their wide receiver position. The Patriots knew they’d have to be patient with the veteran receiver considering he is recuperating from a serious injury.

Before the injury, Thomas was traded to the Houston Texans ahead of the trade deadline. The four-time Pro Bowl wideout was expected to assist Deshaun Watson and the Texans, but he never got acclimated to the offense. Then, an injury to his achilles caused his time in Houston to come to an end.

Over the past two seasons, Thomas has seen a steady decline in his production on the field. The former Denver Broncos wide receiver has stockpiled just 1,626 yards and 10 touchdowns in the past two years.

However, when anyone signs with New England, their career seems to be rejuvenated. At 31 years old, Thomas is hoping to get a sip from the fountain of youth that resides in Foxborough.

The Patriots could use Thomas as they are seemingly thin at the receiver position. Currently, the Patriots plan on having a receiving corps that boasts Julian Edelman, N’Keal Harry, and Phillip Dorsett.
