EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Despite being a three-time loser when it comes to major knee injuries, Terrell Thomas isn't ready to call it a career with the New York Giants.
Far from it.
While some players might have given up after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in their right knee twice in a year, Thomas still has hopes of starting for the Giants. The sixth-year cornerback doesn't care that he has not played a regular-season down in two years or that he is attempting to return after injuring his right knee for a third time.
Thomas just wants to play the game he loves, and even the drudgery of a sweaty training camp in July and August or the loneliness of doing rehabilitation this week in minicamp won't take that urge away.
