According to Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger,  New York Giants cornerback Terrell Thomas told him that he could be out for up to eight weeks as he gets back to rehabbing his knee after aggravating his surgically repaired ACL.

“Thomas can do just that with a successful rehab of an injury described the other day by a source as a “stretched” or “aggravated” ACL. Those are the exact two words Thomas used today to describe the issue, and he said the lower-back tightness he experienced on the first day of camp, and tried to practice through, might have caused him to injure his knee.

“The source also said the best case scenario is for Thomas to return to practice in three to five weeks. Thomas gave the same loose estimate on the low end but admitted it could take as long as eight weeks to get back to practice,” wrote Garafolo.

With Thomas’ latest scare, I would think the Giants will make sure he takes his time with his rehab to make sure his knee is ready to go.

Eli Manning: What Do The Numbers Say

By: Michael Samuels II Eli Manning, winner of two of super bowls in the last five years. Two super bowl MVP’s and his last name is Manning.

One “decent” year and a team that came together at the right time can change that apparently. When I look at...
