Giants facing possible serious issue with Terrell Thomas
The New York Giants were hit with significant injuries early last year and now the team has a concern on its hands.
Cornerback Terrell Thomas, who suffered a torn ACL in his right knee in a preseason game last summer against the Chicago Bears, has re-injured the knee and it involves the ACL. Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports Thomas was sent back to New York from training camp in Albany to be evaluated, and now Thomas will have arthroscopic surgery to determine the damage and the next step.
Thomas got tangled up with wide receiver Domenik Hixon in practice on Sunday and on Monday he had swelling in the knee. Obviously, this could be a significant setback for Thomas, who had vowed to reclaim his starting job.
The Giants signed Thomas to a $28 million, four-year extension during the offseason but the club has ample protection. The only guarantee for Thomas in the deal was a $1 million signing bonus.
