Demaryius Thomas is on a run of good health, and last night’s shoulder injury doesn’t appear to be anything to derail it.

The once-injury plagued Broncos wideout came back to play in the second half of their win over the Raiders, and Broncos coach John Fox said it wasn’t a concern.

It doesn’t appear to be anything real serious,” Fox said, via Andrew Mason of MileHighSports.com. “Hopefully he’ll be ready Monday when we reconvene.”

For Fox to declare someone well usually means they were well a few weeks ago, so Thomas’s situation shouldn’t be a concern.

With the long weekend to rest, the expectation is he should be fine for the Dec. 16 game against the Ravens, which could go a long way toward determining AFC playoff seedings.
