Thomas will undergo season-ending pectoral surgery and was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. The 31-year-old was already ruled out for Sunday's game against the Patriots -- his first absence since 2017 -- but he'll now miss the rest of the 2020 campaign. Thomas is poised to hit free agency in the offseason and should be healthy in time for training camp.
Thomas (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Patriots, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports. Thomas' role on defense has been meaningful in recent weeks, but he didn't practice all week and will miss his first game since the 2017 season. A.J. Moore and Lonnie Johnson figure to pick up the reps left behind by Thomas.
The Texans have signed Thomas, Aaron Wilson the Houston Chronicle reports. Thomas logged 47 tackles in 16 games for the Giants last season, while working primarily as a depth safety/cornerback and core special-teamer. That's the the sort of multi-purpose role the 30-year-old figures to handle for the Texans in 2020.
Thomas recorded 13 tackles (12 solo) during Week 17's loss to the Eagles. Thomas appeared in 16 games in 2019, accumulating 47 tackles (33 solo) and three defended passes in that span. He started at strong safety during the season finale. The Stanford product is set to become an unrestricted free agent unless the Giants bring him back.
The Giants signed Thomas to a two-year contract Monday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports. Thomas totaled 27 tackles (16 solo) and one pass defensed in 13 games for the Dolphins last season. The 29-year-old is likely to serve as a veteran depth option in the secondary for the Giants and could also contribute on special teams.
