ENGLEWOOD-Rookie receiver Carlos Henderson will undergo a surgical procedure to fix an injured thumb, sources told 9News.

He did not practice Saturday as he was undergoing tests to determine the severity of his thumb injury.

Henderson was expected to compete for the starting kick return job right away after being selected by the Broncos in the third round of this year's National Football League draft, but he was outperformed by Kalif Raymond in his National Football League debut. He chose to forgo his senior year of eligibility. He had 82 catches for 1,532 yards and 19 touchdowns as a junior at Louisiana Tech previous year and added two more rushing touchdowns and two more scores off kickoff returns. His 19 receiving TD's tied him for tops in the country alongside Western Michigan wide receiver Corey Davis, who was taken with the fifth overall pick in the draft by the Tennessee Titans. He played three seasons at Louisiana Tech, where he totaled 147 receptions, 2,878 yards and 28 touchdowns.

Henderson suffered the injury early in the Broncos' preseason game Thursday night against the Chicago Bears.
