EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — New York Giants cornerback Terrell Thomas has been waiting for almost two years to get back on the field and play in an NFL game, any type of game.
It just won't be Sunday night when the Giants (1-0) take on Indianapolis in a preseason game at Metlife Stadium, a contest in which the Colts have been challenged by their owner to show something after a dismal performance last weekend.
Thomas has a bigger comeback in mind. He has missed the last two seasons with anterior cruciate ligament injuries. The 28-year-old started training camp on the physically unable to perform list and was activated less than two week ago.
However, he has looked surprisingly good in practice and appears to be close to playing, possibly next week against the Jets.
