Terrell Thomas is indicating that he feels just about ready to play. With the series of injuries at DB, do you see the Giants bringing him back into the fold soon, or playing it safe and taking their time with him?
The only relevant question regarding Terrell Thomas' availability is when will he be cleared to play by the team's medical staff? There's no playing it safe or taking their time or rushing him back. The doctors and athletic trainers will continue to examine his knee. When they deem it strong enough for him to play, he'll play. It's not a question of time, but of the health of the knee. It's worth noting that while Thomas has said he'd like to play in the opener, Tom Coughlin said the reports he's received have indicated that is not possible.
