ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Even with Eric Decker down, Peyton Manning didn't miss a beat.

Decker has been the star of the Denver Broncos' training camp so far, but when he went out with a strained groin, Demaryius Thomas stepped up to solidify his standing in Denver's refurbished offence.

Thomas made several big catches Thursday, even turning a rare wobbly pass from Manning into a 35-yard TD when he outleapt Drayton Florence and Raheem Moore at the goal line.

Nagging injuries have hit the receiving corps with D'Andre Goodwin (foot), Tyler Grisham (knee) and Greg Orton (ankle) joining Decker on the sideline, and the Broncos brought in Cameron Kenney off waivers from Seattle to fill in.

Thanks to Thomas, Manning's timing hasn't been crimped by the steady stream of receivers hobbling off the field.
