The Denver Broncos may have to play their second game of the season this weekend against the Indianapolis Colts without their top wide receiver Demaryius Thomas, as he has been listed as questionable for the matchup.

The 28-year-old has been listed on the Broncos' injury report with a hip injury which he suffered during his team's season opener win a week ago against the Carolina Panthers. Thomas had four catches for 48 yards during that game.

The wideout took part in practices all week, but according to The Denver Post via "was seen "grabbing his hip" and "grimacing" during Wednesday's practice."

However, he 'was running "better" on Friday, but the wideout acknowledged Thursday that he was concerned about coming out of his cuts and getting hit.'

Thomas said according to the Post: "It's something that I've been dealing with for a while. Just a little different. It flared up a little more this time." It will likely be a game-time decision for the three-time Pro Bowler, but he is widely expected to play despite the problems this week in practice.

Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian needs all the help he can get, as after all, he only made his first NFL start last week against the Panthers after sitting behind now retired quarterback Peyton Manning and now Houston Texans quarterback Brock Osweiler in 2015. It's therefore vital Thomas is able to play in this game.

With it being such a tough matchup against the Colts, the Broncos might find it difficult to win if they have to play without their star wide receiver.
