The Denver Broncos will be without tight end Julius Thomas as they host the Miami Dolphins this afternoon, according to a report from Fox Sports Insider Jay Glazer. Thomas injured his ankle last week against the St. Louis Rams and had been listed as questionable on the official injury report, meaning he was 50-50 to play in the game.

Thomas was thought to be a game-time decision for today's game, but it appears the ankle injury will not allow him to play.

Thomas had 426 receiving yards this season on 40 receptions. He leads the league with 12 receiving touchdowns.

Denver lost to the Rams last week, and the Dolphins will be looking to make it two in row for the Peyton Manning led Broncos. Miami currently has the second ranked pass defense in the league with 208 yards per game, trailing just the Kansas City Chiefs, who allow 199 yards a game. The Dolphins have allowed the third fewest passing touchdowns on the year at 14 through 10 games.
