The New York Football Giants are coming off their fourth Super bowl victory in franchise history but they did it without one of their leaders on defense, cornerback Terrell Thomas. Thomas was injured during the preseason, where he torn his ACL.
Thomas spent all of last year rehabbing his torn ACL and he seemed really egger and excited to get back out on the field. It’s now safe to say that Thomas return is going to have to wait. He reinjured the same knee that made him miss the Giants memorable Super Bowl last season.
Thomas re-injured his knee on Sunday when he was covering Giants wide out Domenik Hixon. He went for an MRI on Monday and it showed that there was a tear but not a complete tear, like the injury Thomas suffered in a preseason game, when he collated with defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul.
This is Thomas’s third knee injury; he also tore his ACL in 2005, while in college at USC. Hopefully the injury isn’t career threaten and Thomas can return to the Giants and help led there secondary for years to come.
