Thomas (knee) indicated he'll be ready for the start of training camp, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports. Thomas was placed on injured reserve after tearing his ACL in the first week of last season, but he's recently been able to take part in some running and cutting drills, so it appears he's progressing well. He's currently on pace to be ready for training camp, and once at full strength, he should operate as depth at outside linebacker and as a key special teams player.
Thomas was placed on injured reserve with torn ligaments in his knee. Thomas was largely a special teams player, so his absence won't have an impact on the defense.
Thomas (hamstring) was activated from the team's PUP list on Tuesday, Seth Walder of New York Daily News reports. While the injury was originally considered nothing serious, it ended up costing Thomas almost a month of action. On Tuesday, Thomas was activated from the PUP list and he'll likely be eased into practice in the coming few days. It's unclear if Thomas will take part in either of the team's final two preseason games, but he's fully expected to ready for the regular season opener. Look for Thomas to take on depth role in his second year with the Giants.
Thomas was placed on the PUP list to begin training camp due to a hamstring injury, Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports. According to head coach Ben McAdoo, the injury isn't too severe and Thomas should not be sidelined for an extended amount of time.
The Giants announced they've signed running back Shane Vereen late Wednesday night. The New York Daily News previously reported that Vereen is being signed to a three-year, $12.35 million deal. Vereen rushed for 391 yards and two touchdowns in 2014. He added 447 receiving yards and three touchdowns in the passing game as well. "(I made this) decision with my family," Vereen said, via the team's official website. "At the end of the day, I wanted to make a decision that was right for us, right for them, and this is a great organization. I was fortunate enough to play in New England with another great organization. This is not a step down; if anything, it is a step up. I am looking forward to the opportunity, and I am enjoying being in New York." The Giants also announced the official signings of offensive tackle Marshall Newhouse, wide receiver/return specialist Dwayne Harris and linebackers Jonathan Casillas and J.T. Thomas III.
