Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas, who suffered a hip injury Thursday night, underwent an MRI on Friday that now will be sent out for a second opinion, according to league sources.

But there is some concern that Thomas could miss some time, depending on the second opinion.

Thomas suffered the injury in the first quarter.

The Broncos, who took some time off this weekend after Thursday night’s 21-20 victory over the Carolina Panthers, still are gathering more information on Thomas’ hip injury.

If he is forced to miss time, it would be a huge loss to the Broncos and first-time starting quarterback Trevor Siemian. Thomas has been one of the best receivers in the league since he was drafted by the Broncos number-22 overall in the 2010 draft.

He made the Pro Bowl three straight seasons between 2012-2014 and was a two-time All-Pro selection in 2013 and 2014.
