Terrell Thomas' Injury: Cornerback To Avoid Surgery, Begin Rehab

Terrell Thomas' season is not over. New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin said Monday that Dr. James Andrews agrees with previous opinions that the cornerback, trying to come back from a second torn ACL, does not need surgery at this time. Thomas has been out since the third day of training camp, when he slipped on the UAlbany grass and re-injured his surgically-repaired knee.

"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 said the Giants "will hope for the very best" for Thomas, who will rejoin the team in Albany and begin a rehab program as soon as possible.

Coughlin added that there is no timetable for Thomas to return. "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."

There are, of course, no guarantees that Thomas' knee will hold up once he begins his rehab. This, however, has to be looked at as the best-case scenario for the 27-year-old Thomas.
