Thomas will start at strong safety with Landon Collins (shoulder) on injured reserve. Thomas has been playing in a situational role this year, but he logged a season-high 49 defensive snaps when Collins went down in Week 13's game against the Bears. The 29-year-old made six tackles, and now has 30 stops, four pass breakups and one interception on the season.
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.
Thomas (undisclosed) landed on the Dolphins' injured reserve list Friday. Thomas' season will end with a final count of 27 tackles (16 solo) and one pass defended. In his absence, Trae Elston has been promoted to the team's active roster to help provide depth at strong safety.
Thomas (knee) is active for Sunday's matchup with Denver. Thomas was able to increase his workload in practice throughout the week and is expected to see a typical role on defense and special teams now that he's active.
Thomas (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports. Thomas increased his practice participation throughout the week and seems on track to play Sunday. The 28-year-old is mostly used on special teams at this point, especially since T.J. McDonald returned from suspension.
