In what head coach Tom Coughlin called a best case scenario, New York Giants cornerback Terrell Thomas was back in Albany on Wednesday with what has amounted to an “aggravated” ACL. In other words, the veteran did not tear said ACL for the third time, and could return to the field in as little as three weeks.
“It’s something that it could be three weeks, it could be eight weeks,” Thomas said. “I’m not going to jeopardize my career [by rushing].”
Thomas said that while he’d like to return by week one against the Dallas Cowboys, he’s looking at the big picture of an entire season as opposed to a single game.
“I don’t plan on having any more setbacks. I think this is just a minor scare more than anything,” Thomas said. “You just got to give it time, let it heal, just use my time to place my focus in other aspects, you know, start preparing for my other opponents, start game planning against the NFC East. You know, little stuff like that.”
