By the way, Michael Coe -- not Prince Amukamara -- took Terrell Thomas' spot at CB with the first-team defense. #NYG (https://twitter.com/#!/search/%23NYG)



Doesn't say much, but I guess just testing out Coe.

Look, this sucks if T2 is out for the season (looks that way), but the depth at corner is pretty solid. This isn't a season derailing loss for the team if he's out. Sky hasn't fallen yet, at least wait til the 2nd preseason game before officially throwing the regular season away.

BlueSanta
07-30-2012, 06:57 PM
As much as this sucks, the sole reason TT was available in the 2nd round and wasnt selected early 1st round was that knee. Many teams reportedly had him off their draft boards. Many times we have gambled and won in the draft in recent years, this time it appears as though we gambled on this kids knee and lost.

I hope these reports are wrong. But, I said it previously about all 3 of our returning players this year with a 2nd ACL tear to the same knee(TT, Hixon, and Sintim) the odds are against them. I hope we see them beat those odds.

If the reports are true, I think his leadership will allow him to be a coach down the road and I really do wish him all the luck. He is a fine young man.

It is believed that Terrell Thomas has at the very least a partial tear of his ACL. Doctors will know more after exploratory surgery. # NYG

NYG4lifeNYK
07-30-2012, 07:42 PM
Thomas apparently re-injured his knee on Sunday in practice when he slipped during 1-on-1 passing drills while covering wide receiver Domenik Hixon.


Of all people....... lol anyone else as baffled by these injuries as me? I'm in complete disbelief... every season never gets any easier and it's even more frustrating trying to defend OUR title.

You know it seems like there has been a rash of guys re-injuring their ACL's (Goff just re-tore his ACL and is out for the season again). I think these guys are just coming back to early . . . the ACL needs more than a few months to heal.

The guy I'm worried about is Beckum . . . he's trying to come back from an ACL tear that only happened 6 months ago . . . .

penguinfarmer
07-30-2012, 08:08 PM
I'm more worried about Hixon than Beckum.

Early MG report is that it's a partial tear. This makes things a bit hairier. He's ineligible for PUP now, and it's now an even greater gamble to sacrifice a roster spot hoping he will come back in the end of the season to contribute. I don't even think he gets IR'ed and stashed. That February deadline to pick up his option is far to early to gauge his health for next season.

Alas, I will keep my optimism high, for the sake of Thomas. I really like the guy.

nhpgiantsfan

Obviously if he did this from a simple slip, his knee wasn't ready for football action. Just a shame the team was forced to coose between him and Ross.

Absolutely terrible news. However, I ve grown tired of these guys tearing up there knees a 2nd or 3rd time. They re entire career (and well being of their family) is tied to their health and for life of me I dont understand why these guys refuse to wear a supportive knee brace. I ve torn PCL & meniscus twice along w tearing an MCL once, with a light compression sleeve I can play competitive soccer, baseball & 2 half marathons per yr w zero issur.

Not sure if its an NFL or personal thing but its damn shame to see a young, talented player like TT have his career interrupted (or jeopardized) when it could have been easily avoided. Idk why college lineman at some schools are required to wear DUAL knee braces & NFL guys on the roaf recovery wear nothing.

Hope the best for TT... and Hixon & Beckhum better take precautions

People forget, the entire reason TT wasn't a early/mid 1st round pick was his knee. Some teams did not have him on their boards because his 1st injury in college was reportedly pretty severe. We took a gamble on a class kid in the 2nd round and it did not work out for us. If he did not have that prior injury he likely would have never been on this team. Personally, I will always route for him no matter where he ends up.

Thanks for this concise source Byron. The following excerpt sums it up:

"Research conducted by sports physician and sports injury researcher Dr. John Orchard reports that a player is almost ten times more likely to reinjure their ACL in the first 12 months after the initial injury. After his third knee surgery Schwarz returned to (Aussie) football after 18 months of rehabilitation. He won his clubs best and fairest award in 1999 and went on play many more years of football..."

Ten to twelve months may be a bit too quick. But the beginning of the next season is what everyone shoots for. I don't see that changing ever.

After his third knee surgery Schwarz returned to (Aussie) football after 18 months of rehabilitation. He won his clubs best and fairest award in 1999 and went on play many more years of football..."

Ten to twelve months may be a bit too quick. But the beginning of the next season is what everyone shoots for. I don't see that changing ever. sadly ....given all the money involved, players wanting to play and such the big picture gets lost..we don't if this would have happened if t2 was given a few more months or not but.. would his chances been better? I'm thinking probably

this is a real shame ......dammit .......sad news for Terrell and possibly the end of his Giants career ........but at least it happened in July for the sake of the team ....time to adjust and move forward.

It's called artificial turf.When the feet don't slide the knee gives way.Some turf surfaces are worse than others.

Your arguement would be sound....if the State University of New York at Albany HAD any artificial turf

you are right to some extent...but last year when we had several knee injuries...we were practicing in NY not Albany....and just to add to that on Saturday when it started to rain...the practice was moved to the lacrosse field, which by the way is turf....I am not sure where they practiced Sunday...but it is possible he tweaked it sat and finished Sunday......of course that is speculation....his knee would have already been weak after coming back form last years injury...

Actually, we have 4 players tear their same knee for the 2nd time last year: Hixon, T2, Witherspoon and Sintim Witherspoon tore it for the second time this year. Sintim blew out his entire knee... He dislocated the patella and tore both the ACL and MCL. So, last year we only had 2 that tore it for the second time (with the ACL being the only injury involved).

Actually, Albany does have artificial turf. However, I believe T2 slipped on one of the grass fields.

Good point, but it didn't help that the grass was slick that day after the rain. TT wasn't the only guy to go down because of the wet surface that day.

Well hopefully there is a good, explained reason for the multiple torn ACLs. It's pretty crazy how quick it's happening. Dude either has no luck or he's not getting proper treatment.

Giants CB Terrell Thomas is scheduled to meet Tuesday in Pensacola, Florida with Dr. James Andrews. But doctors who have examined Thomas so far do not believe he has a torn ACL and they are optimistic he will play again this season.

GREAT FRIGGIN NEWS!

It's a known fact ,artificial turf can play havoc on a player and espicially if it's wet, hate to lose Terrell Thomas, lets hope he gets well soon ! With the Billions the NFL makes, you think they could come up with a real good artificial turf, that would avoid these injuries.
