DENVER (KDVR) – Fans kneeled and wore the number 88 as they stepped up to a temporary memorial dedicated to the legacy of wide receiver Demaryius Thomas before the game Sunday between the Broncos and the Lions.

Thomas died earlier this week, after reportedly suffering a seizure inside his Georgia home.

Broncos players will also be wearing number 88 decals on their helmets, and the number 88 has been painted on the field sideline, as well.
