的知 preparing like I知 going out to practice every day. I知 sitting in meetings taking notes like I知 a rookie again." @DPo8 #Texans

DeVier Posey tore his Achilles on Jan 13. Demaryius Thomas tore his in Feb 2011 and was able to practice by Sept 5

I'll be surprised if DeVier Posey doesn't come back strong from his Achilles injury. Very impressive attitude, work ethic

DeVier Posey (Achilles) expects to be on field for rehab next week, eyes Sept/Oct return: http://www.houstontexans.com/news/ar...c-f1804246ba56 #Texans

What do we know about Demariyius Thomas' Achilles? Was it a complete rupture? How does it compare to Devier's?

I'm googling, this is the first thing I found

Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas suffered an Achilles tear in February 2011, and returned to practice in early September. He spoke with media on Wednesday:
"He's a great player and I'm sure he's going to work hard to get back and listen to all the people that he's got to listen to," Thomas said Wednesday. "But it's difficult at first, because it took a while for me to be able to do anything. You know, I had to wear a boot for six to eight weeks, and I couldn't do anything but upper body stuff. Once I got it off, I still had to take time, because it's a serious injury, and you don't want to take it too fast."
Thomas also indicated he didn't feel 100% until seven months after the injury. Thomas did not return to game action until October 23, 2011, but that stretch between his return to practice and returning October 23 was due in large part to breaking his left pinkie finger in his first practice back
How long was Posey in a boot?

How long was Posey in a boot?
First of all I find it somewhat curious that Thomas would say "I had to wear a boot for six to eight weeks." Most players would certainly remember that experience to be quite specific when answering that question.

Typically, a boot is worn most of the time for ~12 weeks because this is the time when a tendon's healing strength is universally deemed adequate. Seldom will a surgeon compromise this period.

Thomas' broken pinkie would not have kept him out for an extra 6 weeks. His fracture was simply pinned. Football players are typically returned to play within 2-3 weeks.

Lastly, once he returned, his production was virtually worthless before week 13 sometime in the beginning of December.

As the Broncos were originally struggling over the question of placing him on reserve PUP, they would have been much better off putting him on PUP to begin with.
