ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The Denver Broncos added wide receiver Demaryius Thomas to the injury report Friday, but the team's leading receiver is expected to start and play his usual allotment of snaps in Sunday's AFC Championship Game.

Thomas, who practiced fully on Wednesday and Thursday, was limited in Friday's workout because of a calf injury. Thomas is believed to have felt some tightness in the muscle earlier in the day.

The Broncos formally listed Thomas -- who led the team with 92 receptions, 1,430 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns -- as probable for the game and Thomas participated in significant amounts of Friday's practice. All of the other players on the Broncos' 53-man roster participated fully in Friday's workout.

And all of the players listed on the injury report are listed as probable and are expected to be available to play. The Broncos wrapped up their week's worth of practice with their usual Friday schedule. When asked to summarize the week, Broncos head coach John Fox said: "Outstanding."

The forecast for Sunday remains postcard-worthy. Temperatures are expected to near 60 degree with no chance of rain and light winds.

"What I've learned in my three years in Denver it can change quickly," Fox said. "The forecast is what it is and we'll see what the weather brings when we get there."
