Logan Thomas scored a touchdown for the Washington Commanders at the end of the first half of today’s game, but the veteran tight end took a hard shot from Denver Broncos defensive back Kareem Jackson while doing so. What happened to Thomas in Week 2, and what’s his current injury status?
Logan Thomas Injury Update
Thomas hauled in a four-yard touchdown pass from Sam Howell to bring the Commanders within 12 points with under two minutes remaining in the second quarter.
Thomas took a vicious hit from Jackson on the play. Jackson was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct and subsequently ejected from the game.
Jackson also delivered a rough hit to Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Jakobi Meyers in Denver’s Week 1 loss. Meyers suffered a concussion and couldn’t play in Week 2.

Thomas stayed down on the field, where he was evaluated by Washington’s medical personnel. Tensions flared between the two clubs, and a minor dustup ensued after the play.
Thankfully, Thomas was able to jog to the sideline under his own power. He went to the blue medical tent, where he was being evaluated for a concussion.
Washington ruled Thomas out for the rest of the game just after the second half began. He’ll try to clear the NFL’s concussion protocol before the Commanders face the Buffalo Bills in Week 2.
Thomas received more targets (eight) than any Commanders receiver in Week 1, hauling in four for 43 yards. He’d posted two catches for 22 yards and the score today before departing.
Fantasy Fallout From Thomas’ Injury
Thomas is being evaluated for a concussion after suffering a big hit from Jackson late in the second quarter. He sustained the injury while hauling in a four-yard touchdown reception with 1:47 remaining in the first half.
Thomas caught four passes for 43 yards in the 20-16 season-opening win against the Arizona Cardinals. While Thomas is out of the lineup, expect a combination of John Bates and Cole Turner to see an expanded role in the Commanders’ passing game.
