Though nobody knows for certain what the future holds for injured starting cornerback Terrell Thomas, one thing is for sure: the Giants cannot count on having him back any time soon. While reports from ESPN seem optimistic, many others believe that those holding out hope for a return sometime in 2012 are wishful thinkers.
Until the coaching staff hears otherwise, they will have to move on without Thomas, who was slated to be the Giants starting cornerback after they re-signed him this offseason.
This will cause a lot of shuffling in the Giants defensive backfield. It will put inexperienced youngsters in the spotlight, and may result in the reappearance of a familiar face in the Big Blue's locker room.
