Demaryius Thomas injured his Achilles, they're not sure yet if its a partial or full tear. Could be a HUGE deal for his career. Definitely for 2011.

Looks like Lloyd survives as Denver's #1 for a little longer. Or perhaps a while longer.

Englewood (CBS4) — CBS4 Sports has learned, Denver Broncos wide receiver DeMaryius Thomas has suffered a torn achilles tendon. The extent of the injury, either a partial or full tear, is not yet known.

Sources tell CBS4 that Thomas suffered the injury during a recent offseason workout in Georgia.

Thomas was coming off an injury-plagued rookie season after being selected by the Broncos in the first round of last year’s draft. He missed the season opener after aggravating a foot injury suffered in college during training camp. He missed 5 games late in the season because of an ankle injury.

The injury is another blow to the Broncos receiving corp. Eddie Royal is rehabbing after hip surgery that could keep him sidelined for upto six months. The Broncos however are hopeful that Royal will be ready for OTA’s in May.

Yet another reason why the Brandon Marshall trade wasn't very smart, IMO.

No disrespect meant, but I don't think you can quantify a trade's success by someone suffering an injury, unless you're arguing they should have kept all that extra depth at the position. In today's NFL, with limited roster space, you can't really justify having tons of depth at one position if others are neglected. You got to wheel and deal, and develop guys behind your starters, IMO.

I see what you're saying there, but Demaryious Thomas was drafted AFTER the Broncos traded Marshall. As in, to be his replacement. For as dynamic of a young receiver Marshall is, to have no real back up plan and to let him go for only a 2nd round pick is a terrible move in my opinion.

What are the smart moves made during McDaniels stint?

You could argue that the Cutler trade was actually relatively smart... but that argument probably falls apart when you consider the fact that it was a McDaniels blunder that forced the organization to make the trade and that he seems to have squandered the draft picks he received in return.
