One of the most underrated and indispensable players on the Giants appears lost for the season.
Giants cornerback Terrell Thomas went to the locker room late in the second quarter after getting leg whipped by teammate Jason Pierre-Paul. Thomas was able to walk off the field, but ESPN’s Suzy Kolber got word from Giants coach Tom Coughlin that Thomas tore his ACL.
Thomas had steadily become New York’s most consistent and complete cornerback and was heading into a contract year. He seemed primed for a big season after a strong training camp. With first round pick Prince Amukamara out until October, the Giants are suddenly thin at cornerback.
It’s a very tough blow for the Giants defense, seemingly made worse because it happened just a few plays before halftime when the Giants starters would come out of the game.
