Last week a survey revealed that a huge majority of NFL players would play with a concussion in the Super Bowl.
And Demaryius Thomas was certainly willing to play through the pain barrier on Sunday night.
The Broncos receiver separated his shoulder early in the first quarter against the Seahawks, it was revealed today.
But as we know, Thomas continued to play for the remainder of the game and even finished with 13 catches on the night and a touchdown reception.
Pretty impressive for a man who must have been in significant pain.
Even more so when you realise that his 13 receptions is a new Super Bowl record.
Vic Lombardi noted on Twitter, that the injury could have been sustained when Thomas took a huge hit from Seahawks' strong safety Kim Chancellor in the opening minutes of the game.
And with his team being blown out 43-8 in Super Bowl XLVIII this is certainly a case of adding injury to insult for the 2010 first round pick.
