Thomas had two tackles and 0.5 sacks during Sunday's 34-23 loss to the Falcons.
Thomas made his presence known when he and Clay Matthews teamed up to sack Matt Ryan early in the first half of Sunday's action. Other than that play, Thomas had a somewhat quiet game, partially due to the offensive talent of the Falcons.
Thomas led the Packers' inside linebacker corps in playing time last season due to injuries to Jake Ryan (shoulder) and Blake Martinez. However, he is the odd man out when all three are healthy and figures to open the 2017 season in a backup role.
Thomas recoded 70 tackles and five passes defensed, including an interception, in 16 games played in 2016.
Thomas played in 61.4 percent of Green Bay's defensive snaps in 2016, more than any other linebacker on the team. He was a quality player for the Packers and aided in their eighth-ranked run defense. Look for Thomas to return for a similar role with the team in 2017.
Thomas injured his back in the regular-season finale. However, after finishing the week with a full practice session Friday, he appears all set to suit up for Sunday's game.
