Thomas (foot) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Thomas did not participate in practice all week after being spotted in a walking boot following the Cowboys' Week 5 loss to the Texans. Dallas will be thin at outside linebacker with Sean Lee (hamstring) also sidelined, so Justin March-Lillard could be in line for additional snaps behind starter Damien Wilson.
Thomas (foot) was seen wearing a walking boot, Jori Epstein of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Thomas exited Sunday night's game against the Texans and was unable to return. The fact that he's in a walking boot doesn't bode well for his Week 6 status, though his availability in practice this week will paint a clearer picture. With Sean Lee (hamstring) not expected to suit up Sunday, the Cowboys will be especially thin at linebacker if Thomas can't suit up versus the Jaguars.
Thomas spent the past three seasons with Green Bay, serving primarily as a reserve linebacker and special-teams player. He'll slot in as the backup middle linebacker behind Jaylon Smith in Dallas but could fall behind on the depth chart if the Cowboys elect to add talent at the position through the draft.
Thomas did not receive a tender offer from the Packers, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Thomas saw his role with the Packers massively reduced in 2017, so it's not a huge surprise that the team has decided to let him walk scot-free. He now hits the free agent market in search of a new home.
