Ian Rapoport reports that Browns LT Joe Thomas is feared to have a torn triceps and will undergo an MRI to determine the severity of the injury on Monday. However, if Thomas is confirmed to have a triceps tear, it would likely require season-ending surgery.
Thomas put together, arguably, the most impressive ironman streak in NFL history by playing over 10,000 snaps before this injury forced him to leave Sunday’s game.
You can expect the Browns to place Thomas on injured reserve if tests confirm the injury in the coming days and add someone to their roster.
Browns LT Joe Thomas suffered a triceps injury during the third quarter of Sunday’s game against the Titans and missed the first snap of his Hall of Fame career.
The Browns have already ruled Thomas out for the game, so this will be an injury we’ll be keeping an eye on moving forward.
Thomas has once again been the subject of trade rumors, but the consensus is that it’s unlikely the Browns would trade him before the upcoming deadline.
Thomas, 32, is a former first-round pick of the Browns back in 2007. He’s currently in the seventh year of his eight-year, $92 million contract that includes $44 million guaranteed and stands to make base salaries of $8.8 million over the final two years of the agreement.
Entering today’s game, Thomas had appeared in all six games and is rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 2 offensive tackle out of 71 qualifying players.
We’ll have more regarding Thomas’ injury as the news is available.
