Thomas caught five passes for 62 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over Kansas City.

He was quiet in Week 1 mostly because of drops. He's tied for the team lead with 18 targets in two weeks.

Thomas is missing his seventh workout of training camp. Coach John Fox had said Sunday he hoped to have Thomas back at practice Monday morning, but the wide receiver was apparently still making his way back from Georgia following the death of his grandmother.

Thomas caught a team-best 92 passes for 1,430 yards and 14 touchdowns last year. He also set a Super Bowl record with 13 receptions.

Thomas will miss the first few days of the Denver Broncos' training camp to attend the funeral of the grandmother who helped raise him in Georgia.

Thomas attended the Broncos' team meeting Wednesday, a day after his grandmother died, and received permission from coach John Fox to leave for a few days. He's expected to rejoin his teammates Monday. Thomas' agent and the Broncos have exchanged proposals on a long-term contract that general manager John Elway wants to get done within the next two weeks so that it doesn't become a distraction.

Thomas had a Super Bowl-record 13 receptions for 118 yards and a TD on Sunday.

The previous receptions mark was 11, shared by Cincinnati's Dan Ross (1982 against the 49ers), San Francisco's Jerry Rice (1989 against the Bengals), and New England's Deion Branch (2005 against Philadelphia) and Wes Welker (2008 against the Giants).
