New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin reported on Monday that cornerback Terrell Thomas will avoid surgery on his surgically-repaired right knee and start rehab. Dr. James Andrews said that he does not believe that Thomas needs surgery at this point in time on the knee. Thomas, returning from his second torn ACL, has been out of Giants training camp since slipping on the field during the third day of practice.
Coughlin said on Monday, "The suggestion on the part of the group of doctors that have looked at Terrell Thomas is that we try to rehab him and see how he does, and if he can get back on the field to do so." Coughlin did not have a timeframe for a return for Thomas. "He'll jump in there, I'm sure he'll go hard," Coughlin said. "He feels very positive about it. He really doesn't feel any pain, does not feel instability, it's not swollen."
