Another NFL player is lost for the season in training camp. CBS Sports is reporting that Redskins rookie safety Phillip Thomas has torn the Lisfranc ligament in his foot. Mike Shannahan confirmed that Thomas will undergo surgery and will be out for 4 to 5 months.
Thomas was the 119th pick of this year’s draft and was expected to be starter for the Skins. This is the second major leg surgery for Thomas as he suffered a broken leg and fractured ankle causing him to miss the entire 2011 season for the Bulldogs. While the Redskins do have veteran leadership in their secondary, Thomas’ season-ending injury puts a damper on the outlook for the Redskins secondary for the upcoming season.
