Indianapolis, IN (SportsNetwork.com) - Indianapolis Colts guard Donald Thomas will miss the upcoming 2014 season after re-injuring his right quadriceps during Wednesday's practice.
Head coach Chuck Pagano confirmed to reporters on Thursday that Thomas will be put on season-ending injured reserve.
Thomas, who signed a four-year, $14 million contract with the Colts in March of 2013, started the first two games at left guard last season before tearing the same quadriceps and missing the remainder of the campaign.
The seventh-year pro has made 23 career starts and played in 45 overall games, having had stints with Miami, Detroit and New England before joining the Colts.
Rookie Jack Mewhort, Indianapolis' second-round pick in this year's draft, was taking the majority of first-team reps at left guard following Thomas' injury.
