Terrell Thomas Injury Update: Giants DB Likely To Have Knee Surgery

New York Giants cornerback Terrell Thomas could need right knee surgery once again, according to a report. Thomas missed all of last season after tearing his ACL in the knee in a preseason game.

Thomas injured his right knee on Sunday when he slipped during a drill at practice. On Monday, the team sent Thomas to get an MRI on his knee at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan. He has torn his ACL twice, once in college and once with the Giants. The MRI showed damage to the ACL.

"Terrell re-injured his ACL," said Giants senior vice president of medical services Ronnie Barnes. "At this point, he will most likely undergo an arthroscopic procedure to determine the extent of the injury to the ACL. However, no decision has been made at this point. Terrell is going to consult with Dr. (Arthur) Ting, who performed an allograft reconstruction of the ACL in September."

Thomas made 231 tackles, 11 interceptions and forced six fumbles for the Giants from 2008-2010.
