Giants' DB Terrell Thomas (T2) is aiming for a spot on the Giants' roster this fall. Normally, the former second-round pick would be penciled in at CB for the Blue, but this time around he'll be just another hopeful in camp.
Thomas, who led the Giants in tackles in 2009 and 2010, has missed the past two seasons with ACL tears. Add those two tears to the one he sustained in college at USC, and T2 once again finds himself in the all-too-familiar situation of a coming back from injury.
Without Thomas, the Giants' secondary has been inconsistent (to put it kindly), winning a Super Bowl two years ago and then imploding last season. Unlike last summer, Thomas' road back to the field has been a longer, slower process. The Giants want to assure he gets to camp on solid footing to give him the best chance to make the team as a member of their secondary.
The latest from Rotoworld:
He's been backpedaling and doing some "light cutting," but the team is continuing to hold him out of football activities as a precaution. It's anticipated Thomas will be moved to safety to reduce the stress on his knee, although the defensive back says his only concern right now is "getting back on the field." He's cleared to resume practicing at the start of camp.For more on T2's comeback, visit ProPlayersInsiders.com
