Giants Prepare For Possibility Of Season Without Thomas

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) _ With the status of Terrell Thomas’ injured right knee uncertain, the New York Giants are hoping for the best and preparing to make changes in case the veteran cannot play this season.

Thomas re-injured his right anterior cruciate ligament for the third time in his career when he slipped in practice Sunday during the Super Bowl champions’ third training camp practice.

Initially, the Giants said Thomas re-injured his ACL and probably would have arthroscopic surgery. He went to California to
get a second opinion from the surgeon who reconstructed his ACL last year, and the five-year veteran plans to be examined by Alabama-based surgeon Dr. James Andrews next week, the Giants said.

If Thomas only stretched his ACL, there is hope that he could return.
