Giants LB J.T. Thomas carted off to the locker room at halftime of Sunday’s game against the Cowboys with an apparent left knee injury.
The Giants placed Thomas on their active/PUP list this summer before activating him a few week ago.
Thomas, 28, is in the second year of his three-year, $12 million contract that includes $4.5 million guaranteed. He was set to make a base salary of $2.975 million in each of the next two years.
Thomas recently agreed to reduce his $2.975 million base salary to $1.5 million as part of a pay cut to remain with the team.
In 2015, Thomas appeared in 12 games and recorded 47 tackles and a half sack for the Giants. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 28 outside linebacker in a 4-3 out of 34 qualifying players.
We’ll have more regarding the severity of Thomas’ injury as the news is available.
