Terrell Thomas, Chris Snee come off PUP list

Giants cornerback Terrell Thomas‘ attempt to return from a third torn ACL in his right knee took a step forward on Tuesday.

The Giants activated Thomas from the physically unable to perform list, freeing him to start practicing with his teammates for the first time since the start of training camp. Thomas hasn’t played a regular season down since the 2010 season because of the last two tears and one imagines that the Giants will proceed cautiously with him in hopes of avoiding another crushing injury.

Guard Chris Snee is also coming off the PUP list on Tuesday, giving coach Tom Coughlin his first chance to see his son-in-law on the field this summer. Snee had hip surgery this offseason to fix a problem that’s nagged him for a couple of years and will be reinstalled at his familiar right guard spot now that he’s been cleared to resume football activities.

Three Giants — defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, fullback Henry Hynoski and defensive tackle Markus Kuhn — remain on the PUP list. General Manager Jerry Reese said during an interview on WFAN Tuesday that the team still expects Pierre-Paul, who had back surgery, to be on the field for the start of the regular season.

    Terrell Thomas coming back is fantastic! He was the best corner when he got hurt and he’s plenty rested. He will be the best corner in the league this year.

    Ideally, our new found depth at cb will allow rolle to go back to centerfield safety. When he’s back there free lancing our defense is at its best. I’m sure by the time this comment goes live, one of our cbs will have torn an acl. It’s our normal summer rite of passage.

    Temper it down a little. He had a ton of potential, but who knows if he can even play corner at this point. And considering how well Prince was coming along last season, he’ll be a tough player to beat out of any spot on the field.

    T2 has a long way to go and any issues or setbacks, would be his final calling.
    This team is loaded at CB & S , and T2 will have to actually play in preseason and show he is still the player he was when the giants drafted him #2, from USC.
    As a 50+ year giant fan, I’m pulling for him, and hope that if he doesn’t make it, he understands he did all he could do, and all giants fans are behind him!
    Good luck T2!

    Two pro-bowl caliber players that are healthy again, and ready to dominate.

    T2 was the best corner in the NFC East before he was hurt. If RG3 can be deemed ready to dominate again by Redskins fans, then so can T2 by Giants fans.

    If Thomas plays relatively well, that alone will be a nice boost for the NYG. Prince and Webster are solid enough, and he’d add another dimension. I thought TT might play safety, though?

    All we need is for that secondary to stay healthy. TT, at his low points is above average for the collective play of last season.
