Cornerback Terrell Thomas suffered an injury to his surgically repaired right ACL and likely will go through an arthroscopic procedure to figure out the extent of the injury, according to the N.Y Giants.

A source said it is thought that Thomas suffered a partial tear of his ACL, but more will be known after the arthroscopic procedure.

Thomas was sent to the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan for an MRI after he experienced swelling in his knee, which he had surgery on last September after suffering the 2nd torn right ACL of his career.

“Terrell re-injured his ACL,” Ronnie Barnes, New York Giants senior vice president of medical services, said in a press release. “At this point, he will very probably bear an arthroscopic procedure to determine the extent of the injury to the ACL.” Football betting lines

“However, no decision has been made at this point,” Barnes added. “Terrell is going to consult with Doctor (Arthur) Ting, who performed an allograft reconstruction of the ACL in September.”

Thomas took a spill during Sunday’s practice while covering Domenik Hixon and later sat out the final portion of practice while icing his knee.

The cornerback is attempting to come back from a season-ending torn ACL injury suffered last preseason and had been cleared by doctors to practice without restrictions. He 1st tore the same ACL at USC in 2005 but successfully returned from that setback.
Tom Coughlin was really worried and voiced concern for his starting cornerback before the Giants releasing the update on Thomas.

“He walked up to me after practice (on Sunday) and thought he felt good,” Coughlin claimed earlier on in the day. “He failed to really appear to have any issues and then this morning when he came back in, it was swollen.”

The Giants also sent linebacker Michael Boley to the Hospital for Special Surgery to have his hamstring injury inspected. Boley’s injury isn’t believed to be as significant.

Thomas is the N.Y Giants starting cornerback opposite Corey Webster. His return was to be a boost to the defending Super Bowl champion’s defense.

If Thomas is out, Prince Amukamara, Michael Coe, Justin Tryon, Jayron Hosley and Bruce Johnson are among the candidates to replace him as a starter. Hosley suffered a laceration to his knee on a fall on Monday in camp and needed stitches.

The New York Giants are no strangers to injuries decimating their secondary. Thomas was 1 of 5 cornerbacks who were placed on injured reserve last year with season-ending injuries. Thomas, Johnson, Coe, Tryon and Brian Witherspoon were lost for the season.

The Giants signed Thomas to a 4-year, $28 million contract in free agency, but it is a risk-free, high-reward deal. He allegedly got a $1 million signing bonus and receives that amount if he is on the team this season. The team has a $6 million option on Thomas in March.

Thomas worked extraordinarily tough to rehab his knee and be back to start camp. Now he’ll have to wait to see just how terrible his most recent knee injury is. Football betting lines
