Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Julius Thomas is reportedly making good progress during his recovery from a hand injury and could be ready to play in the regular-season opener against the Carolina Panthers on Sept. 13.

Thomas, who suffered a stable fracture in his left hand during Jacksonville’s 23-21 preseason victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Aug. 14, signed a five-year, $46.2 million contract during the offseason.

The 6-foot-5, 250-pound Thomas recorded a team-high 12 touchdown receptions with Denver in 2014 and 12 in 2013 after the Broncos selected him in the fourth round of the 2011 draft.
