New York Giants cornerback Terrell Thomas underwent his third anterior-cruciate ligament surgery in seven years this week, multiple media outlets reported Thursday. Thomas, 27, first injured his ACL while at USC, and he missed the 2011 season with a torn ACL. He reinjured it during training camp this year. Thomas tried to rehabilitate it without surgery, and he was put on season-ending injured reserve during final cuts in August. He had surgery on Tuesday to repair a partial tear of the ACL, according to the Newark Star-Ledger, which first reported the surgery. The recovery time is typically at least six months. The Giants re-signed Thomas to a four-year, $28 million contract just before he would have become a free agent this past offseason. However, most of that money is contingent upon the team picking up the option next spring, according to the Star-Ledger. Thomas started all 16 games in 2009 and again in 2010, but has not played since.

In some potentially discouraging news, the New York Giants will most likely be without Keith Rivers for the team’s Week two bout with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Rivers was all over the field in the Giants first game, and he was well on his way to becoming an integral aspect of the Giants linebacker core. Staying with the injury theme, Adewale Ojomo has been ruled out of Sunday’s...
Prior to the start of the 2012 NFL season, New York Giants defensive tackle Osi Umenyiora decided to cause a fuss over Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin the 3rd.
He stated in a WFAN interview that he wouldn't call him by his nickname RG3 and would call him instead by the name of "Bob".
Well, it only took one week for Osi to change his tune about the...
The New York Giants are dealing with plenty of drama this offseason. As defending Super Bowl champions, they've got a big target on their backs heading into this year, and a Week 1 loss to the Dallas Cowboys certainly didn't help matters. What really could be derailing their season, however, is the loss of a loved one in the Giants family: offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride...
According to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News, Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks says he’s just resting his foot today and will be back at practice on Thursday.

TAMPA, Fla. You might think that the Tampa Bay Bucs would benefit from have a little inside knowledge regarding the tendencies and even the playbook of the New York Giants heading into Sundays Week Two game at MetLife Stadium.
After all, Bucs offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan served on the Giants staff as quarterbacks coach for Eli Manning the past two seasons and oversaw their...

We all know Victor Cruz had an awful game opening night,
with three key drops that played a direct role in the Giants’ loss.
Not only is the past the past, but some things are bigger
than football. This past...
Now, doesn’t this look reminiscent from a year ago.
With the New York Giants facing the leagues toughest schedule in 2012, they will need to take care of their early-season games, which appear to be much easier than the later part of the season.
In 2011, New York jumped on their September and early-October opponents, sprinting out to a 5-2 record before faltering in the back...

As we told you last week, Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks is still having some pain in his foot after injuring it this summer.
This is nothing new. He did not fully participate in practice prior to the Cowboy game either. All indications are that he will still be starting for Big Blue when they take on the Tampa Bay Bucs this weekend.
Although he did not practice the final two...
I was a 2 sport athlete back then Juan…
This was Victor Cruz when he was just 10 years old. Now back to business. Cruz had some big drops in the Giants first game against the Cowboys, but I fully expect him to get double digit targets and have a big game against the Bucs.

Following in the footsteps of standout linebackers such as Willie McGinest and the late Junior Seau, Keith Rivers wore No. 55 during his college playing days at Southern California. Unfortunately, Rivers has yet to enjoy the same NFL success as his predecessors as the No. 9 overall pick in the 2008 draft.
After four injury-plagued seasons in Cincinnati, Rivers was traded in April...
