Tech’s Thomas breaks foot

Former Georgia Tech wide receiver Demaryius Thomas broke his foot during training on Wednesday, according to a posting on his facebook page.

He won’t be able to participate in next week’s combine in Indianapolis, but his agent, Todd France, said that Thomas should be able to get back on the field in 4-6 weeks.

“There are no longterm effects from the injury and Demaryius will be 100 percent by the time OTA’s begin,” France told SI.com. “If surgery hastens the healing process, that is something we will consider.”

The injury occurred during a three-cone drill exercise that Thomas was participating in at a preparation camp in Scottsdale, Ariz.

Thomas, 6-3, 237 pounds,  shot into the first round of  ESPN analyst Mel Kiper’s draft board on Wednesday. Kiper wrote on espn.com that Thomas was a “big-time downfield threat” and that he “will be red-hot after the workouts get going.”

Thomas, a native of Montrose, had 46 receptions for 1,154 yards and eight touchdowns last season. During his three-year career at Tech, Thomas caught 120 passes for 2,339 yards and 14 touchdowns.

Hope it doesn’t hurt his newly risen draft stock.

maybe the falcons trade HD and their 2nd round pick to move up and snag him as he slides due to not working out at the combine. this can only hurt his stock a little now.

I saw somewhere that he ran a 4.38 40 and it was recorded on video and sent to every team in the league since he can’t run in the combine now. Any truth to this?

DT is going to get paid in the NFL. Best of luck to him. Great physical specimen, he’s a beast in the blocking department. Total package.

Great talent who was a token at best in Tech’s O. Wish him a speedy recovery and future succes.

Kiper has Thomas in the first round? I find that strange since on the NFL “Receivers and Tight Ends” segment http://espn.go.com/sportsnation/post/_/id/4920992/receivers-edition , he’s not in the top 5.
