EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — New York Giants starting cornerback Terrell Thomas is probably going to miss the season after suffering a major injury to his right knee in the closing seconds of a first half preseason game against the Chicago Bears.
Thomas was hurt with 22 seconds left in the half when it appeared that Jason Pierre-Paul hit his from the side on a pass play.
Thomas walked to the locker room and the preliminary diagnosis was a torn anterior cruciate ligament, which is usally season ending.
Aaron Ross will probably step into the starting lineup along with Corey Webster. Giants first-round draft pick Prince Amukamara broke a foot in his first training camp practice a couple of week ago.
He is not due back until midseason.
