CB Terrell Thomas is getting closer and closer to 100% with each passing day. He’s feeling confident he’s going be on this team come August 31st, but not sure when he’s going to play in a game as of yet. He says he has to prove to the coaches that he is physically able to play in the NFL again.
T2′s comeback from his second ACL surgery in two years (and third overall) has been intentionally slowed by the Giants’ medical staff who are being very cautious with the veteran corner. They know they have no margin for error. Thomas’ career is on the line.
Thomas was asked if he has any hesitation on the field and is confident cutting on the knee….
“I am, I am totally confident. I have made the cuts and I think watching it on film, seeing myself, I’m not looking down, I’m not hesitant to put my knee on the ground and I think yesterday was a big day for me to get out there on the turf and make cuts and wasn’t hesitant and each and every day I want to come back and practice. My knee’s not swollen up, it’s not hurting and that’s the biggest thing. Getting through practice is easiest and the next day when you have the lingering issues I’ve been healthy throughout the whole process so that’s a great sign.”
