Former Denver Broncos and Houston Texans wide receiver Demaryius Thomas came away with minor injuries early Saturday morning after the vehicle he was driving was involved in a rollover crash near downtown Denver, multiple reports indicated. A female passenger reportedly suffered serious injuries in the crash, while another male passenger also came away with minor injuries.
According to a police news release, officers responded to the 1200 block of Auraria Parkway at approximately 12:20 a.m. The location is two blocks from the Pepsi Center, home of the Denver Nuggets. Thomas, 31, reportedly lost control of the car and it came to rest on a median. All three passengers were transported to a local hospital.
The Denver Post reported that no charges or arrests have been made in the incident. Initial indications from police are that neither drugs nor alcohol were involved in the crash. Thomas, a first-round draft pick in 2010 out of Georgia Tech, was released by the Houston Texans on Tuesday. He had 665 receptions over 125 games for the Broncos from 2010-18, for 9,055 yards and 60 touchdowns. He was traded to the Texans midway through last season, catching 23 passes for 275 yards and two TDs.
