ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Projected starting cornerback Terrell Thomas has re-injured his surgically repaired right knee and his status for the New York Giants’ season is uncertain.
Thomas was sent to the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York Monday after reporting that he had swelling in his right knee. An MRI and an examination by Dr. Russell Warren showed that the five-year veteran suffered another injury to the knee involving the ACL.
He tore his ACL for the second time in a preseason game last season and missed the Giants’ Super Bowl season. He slipped in practice on Sunday covering receiver Domenik Hixon and that seems to be when he re-injured it.
Ronnie Barnes, the Giants senior vice president of medical services, said that Thomas probably would have arthroscopic surgery to determine the extent of the new injury. Thomas plans to consult with California-based surgeon Dr. Arthur Ting, who performed the ACL reconstruction in September
