Redskins rookie safety Phillip Thomas out for year with foot injury, hurt in preseason opener

Washington Redskins safety Phillip Thomas will miss his rookie season with a foot injury.

Coach Mike Shanahan said Tuesday that Thomas will have surgery on a torn ligament in the left foot.

Thomas will require four to five months of recovery and will be placed on injured reserve.

Thomas is a fourth-round pick from Fresno State. He was injured in last week's preseason opener against the Tennessee Titans.
