This is a tough break for the Giants and Thurmond as they were both hoping for big things in his first year in New York. Jayron Hosley is expected to be back from his suspension in the coming weeks, so there is at least get some help on the horizon.
Thurmond, 27, signed a one-year contract worth $3 million which included $2 million guaranteed. He has $1.975 million base salary for the 2014 season.
He was obviously hoping to put together a strong season and cash in on the open market next year, but this injury will almost certainly have an impact on his next contract.
Thurmond finishes 2014 with four total tackles over the course of two games.
