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 (not-injury related) was absent from practice Wednesday, Alain Poupart of the Dolphins' official site reports.
Thomas has missed the past two games with a sprained knee, so it's surprising to see him listed as a DNP on Wednesday without an injury tag. His availability for Sunday's season finale against the Bills will be clarified as the week unfolds.
Thomas (knee) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.
Thomas has been nursing a partially torn PCL in his right knee for weeks and will now be forced to miss a second straight game. His absence should allow starter T.J. McDonald to take on as many snaps as McDonald can handle.
Thomas (knee) was downgraded to out and won't travel with the team to Buffalo ahead of Sunday's game against the Bills, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.
Thomas was originally listed as questionable and was expected to play, but his right knee seems to have acted up Saturday. The 28-year-old has been playing through a partially torn PCL for a few weeks and his availability is subject to change day-to-day. He will likely require surgery once the season is over.
Thomas (knee) is likely to play Sunday in Buffalo, Omar Kelly of the Sun-Sentinel reports.
Thomas has a partially torn posterior cruciate ligament in his right knee and has been playing with the injury for a couple of weeks. The Dolphins have only allowed him to practice once each week in order to ensure that he can play when it counts, but he is likely to require surgery at the end of the season. Thomas is also a free agent at the end of the season, and a long rehab could certainly hurt his future earning potential.
Thomas is at risk of being shut down for the season following the latest MRI on his knee, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Doctors reportedly wanted Thomas to be shut down for the season when he initially suffered the knee injury, and even though he's been on the field the swelling has not gone down. As a result, Thomas and the team are weighing his options for the remainder of the season. There will likely be another update on the defensive back's status later in the week.
Thomas (knee) is listed as active for Monday's matchup against the Patriots.
Thomas earned a questionable designation after being unable to practice throughout the week, but it looks like the Dolphins were just exercising caution with their reserve strong safety. Look for him to take on his usual workload, barring any setbacks.
Thomas (knee) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Patriots.
Thomas was unable to practice this week, making the questionable tag a bit curious. The 28-year-old typically serves as a reserve safety for the Dolphins, but the secondary is already likely to be shorthanded Monday with rookie cornerback Cordrea Tankersley (ankle) listed as doubtful.
Thomas (knee) didn't practice Thursday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
It's unknown right now if the reason Thomas didn't practice is because he has had a setback with the knee or if he was just given a maintenance day by the team. With Miami not playing until Monday, Thomas still has a few days to prove to the team that he is ready to go versus the Patriots.
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.
Thomas (knee) is active for Sunday's matchup with the Buccaneers.
Thomas has been nursing this knee injury for a while now, but the soreness isn't enough to keep him out of Sunday's lineup. However, he's mainly used as a special teams asset, even more now that starting free safety T.J. McDonald has returned from his eight-game suspension.
Thomas (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Thomas was limited in practice all week with the knee injury. It doesn't help his case that the Dolphins have a quick turnaround following Monday's loss to the Panthers, so if Thomas is still sore heading into the weekend, he could conceivably miss his first contest of the season. Thomas is expected to see most of his snaps on special teams the rest of the way after T.J. McDonald returned from an eight-game suspension to suit up against Carolina.
Thomas (knee) has been cleared to play in Monday's game against the Panthers.
Thomas is expected to take a back seat to T.J. McDonald, who is making his first appearance of the season after serving an eight-game suspension. Thomas could still see some time on defense, but the majority of his workload will likely come on special teams.
Thomas (knee) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Panthers, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Thomas' only practice participation this week was a limited session Saturday, so he has earned the questionable tag. The 28-year-old is likely slated for a reserve role regardless due to the return of T.J. McDonald from suspension.
Thomas (knee) did not participate in Friday's practice, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Thomas was already starting in place of the injured Nate Allen (calf). If he is unable to go Monday in Carolina, it would leave the team pretty thin at safety.
Thomas is slated to start at free safety Sunday against the Raiders, Omar Kelly of the Sun-Sentinel reports.
Thomas will get the first shot at replacing Nate Allen (calf), who was placed on injured reserve Tuesday. Through seven games this season, Thomas has logged more snaps on special teams (163) than defense (76), so he'll need to produce before attracting much intrigue in IDP settings.
Thomas signed a one-year contract with the Dolphins on Monday, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.
Thomas played well as a nickel corner and backup safety in Miami last season, finishing the year with 85 tackles. He'll likely see a similar role in 2017.
