Giants’ Thomas Out For Season


Last night, the New York Giants defeated the Chicago Bears 41-13 to close out the second week of preseason. But the much bigger story of the night happened late in the first half. With less than a minute before halftime, starting Giants corner Terrell Thomas for the Giants went down getting his knee buckled underneath him by fellow defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul as he was going after Bears QB Jay Cutler. Thomas went down in pain, but eventually walked off under his own power into the locker room at the half. However, at the beginning of the second half, ESPN’s Suzy Kolber reported that Thomas had actually torn his ACL and will likely miss the rest of the season.

Thomas led the team in tackles last season,  and his injury is a devastating blow to the Giants. They will now need to find someone to replace him for the upcoming year.
