Excerpt: "Terrell Thomas has begun jogging outside a pool this week as he attempts his third comeback from an ACL knee injury.

"Today was a great day," Thomas wrote on his website (http://www.terrellthomas24.com/). "For the first time I started with some movement prep exercises where I focused heavily on the hamstrings and quads on the leg press machine and with body lunges. I completed step-downs to focus on stability. I ran for the first time outside of the pool today where I reached a full jog.

"There was no swelling or discomfort, I did have a little adjustment but as I kept running it felt fine. I worked on some back pedaling as well, which felt good, very fluid motion. I also performed some resistance marches, forward, vertical and backwards. Overall no swelling, pain or discomfort so the first day of running really felt great." Read more...

I'm not expecting anything to happen with his injury history, but I would be the first in line to eat crow if he managed to pull this off. Hixon was able to pull off an epic comeback with 2 ACLs, so why not TT?

This is TTs third ACL and he wasn't exactly the most nimble or explosive guy to begin with. It is tough to burn a roster spot on a guy with that much injury history.

They might be able to get him for a case of Moon Pies and a case of RC Cola

The best "highlight" video I could find for TT http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sAAIGlyBaR8

I hope he makes a full recovery and get a roster spot...on some other team.

This is painful to see and read, I don't question TT's heart and will to compete but I think 3 ACL surgeries is just too much. To much burden on that knee.

If T2 gets another chance, he owes at least part of his paycheck to Thomas Davis of the panthers.
