The Bills released Thomas on Wednesday.
Thomas saw the field for just six defensive snaps in the two games he appeared in thus far in 2018. His release opened the door for the team's claiming of another defensive tackle, Jordan Phillips, off waivers from Miami.
Thomas was called up from the practice squad Saturday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
In a somewhat surprising move, the Bills cut veteran receiver Jeremy Kerley, hence leaving room on the roster for Thomas, who will provide defensive line depth after the Bills finally gave up on Adolphus Washington during the week.
Thomas re-signed with the Giants on Thursday.
In 15 games last season, Thomas recorded 16 tackles (five solo). The 27-year-old will likely serve as a depth option on the defensive line for the Giants in 2018.
Thomas (calf) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.
Thomas was limited on Wednesday with the calf injury, but after a full session Thursday, the reserve defensive lineman should be ready to go for Sunday's matchup with the Rams.
Thomas (soreness) played in Monday's game against the Browns.
He only played 68 snaps in 2016, but Thomas is competing for a larger role on the defensive front this season. Now that he's healthy, Thomas can try stealing snaps from fellow tackle Jay Bromley.
Thomas (soreness) is unlikely to play in the Giants' preseason opener Friday against the Steelers, ESPN's Jordan Raanan reports.
Thomas doesn't appear to be dealing with a serious issue, so he should be back in action sooner rather than later.
Thomas signed a one-year contract with the Giants on Tuesday, James Kratch of the New Jersey Advanced Media reports.
Thomas played in just eight games in 2016, seeing the field for 68 snaps. He recorded five tackles, including a sack, while flashing some decent pass rush potential. He'll have a chance to compete for a larger role with the team in 2017.
Thomas (illness) was not listed on the Giants' injury report on Thursday and is all cleared to play Sunday.
Thomas has been dealing with some sort of illness the entirety of the season, but is now expected to make his season debut this Sunday against the Packers. The 25-year-old will play in reserve role behind starter Johnathan Hankins, so expect his reps to be limited.
Thomas (illness) will not participate in Monday's matchup with the Vikings.
Thomas was a non-participant this week at practice, so this status is unsurprising. Montori Hughes and Jay Bromley will handle backup duties at defensive tackle in Thomas' absence.
Thomas (illness) is ruled out for Sunday's tilt with Washington.
Thomas was a non-participant at practice throughout the week. Montori Hughes could fill his void as a backup if needed.
Thomas (illness) will not play in the Giants' Week 2 matchup against the Saints.
Thomas already missed Week 1 due to the illness; he should be considered week-to-week until further notice. Montori Hughes and Jay Bromley project to see upticks in snaps behind starters Damon Harrison and Johnathan Hankins.
Thomas (illness) was unable to practice Wednesday, SNY's Ralph Vacchiano reports.
Thomas also missed Sunday's Week 1 matchup in Dallas due to the illness, and his status for Week 2 against the Saints remains up in the air. Damon Harrison and Johnathan Hankins figure to remain the starters at defensive tackle, with Montori Hughes and Jay Bromley providing depth in Thomas' potential absence.

Washington has made DE Kedric Golston, QB Robert Griffin III, LB Akeem Jordan, G Shawn Lauvao, WR Santana Moss, TE Jordan Reed and DT Robert Thomas inactive for Week 4 against the Giants.
Jordan, Griffin and Reed were ruled out prior to the contest. Golston and Lauvao were listed as questionable coming into the game.
The Redskins announced Thursday they promoted defensive lineman Robert Thomas from the practice squad to the active roster. Thomas was waived by Washington in late August before joining the practice squad a few days later.
