Terrell Thomas Cleared by Doctors to Resume Football Activities in Time for New York Giants Training Camp
New York Giants cornerback Terrell Thomas is good to resume football activities in time for training camp which starts on July 26th. “I just left the doctor’s office,” Thomas wrote on Saturday on his personal website. “I am all cleared for camp; obviously they will be monitoring me throughout camp. It will be in the hands of [head trainer] Ronnie Barnes who has been protecting me thus far.”
This is good news for the New York Giants and Giants fans. Thomas was arguably their best cornerback heading into last season and his absence after suffering an ACL injury was definitely felt. The Giants might bring Thomas along slowly, however, to protect him from reinjuring his knee but he should be ready to go full speed by the start of the regular season at the latest.
Prior to injuring his ACL, Thomas had intercepted five passes in both 2009 and 2010 while recording 70 tackles and 81 tackles in those years. He was widely regarded as a potential Pro Bowl player heading into the 2011 campaign before tearing his ACL in a game against the Chicago Bears on August 22, 2011.
Despite the year away, Thomas is looking forward to hitting the field and proving that he is still the same player he was before the injury. “I just want to let you know that I have been working real hard,” Thomas continued on his site. “I am determined to get to the same form as last year and to be a great addition to our secondary. I am looking forward to making the playoffs and hope for a shot to repeat.”
Thomas is penciled in to start opposite left cornerback Corey Webster with 2011 first round pick Prince Amukamara and 2012 third round selection Jayron Hosley fighting it out for the third corner position.
