Adalius Thomas May Not Be Out For The Season
Posted by Mike on November 13, 2008
According to an NFL source with knowledge of Thomas’s injury, the Patriots outside linebacker had surgery yesterday to repair a broken right forearm. Several reports had said Thomas broke his left forearm last Sunday during the Patriots’ 20-10 loss to the Bills, but the source said the injury was to Thomas’s right arm.
Two sources said doctors have not told Thomas he is out for the season. The decision may ultimately come down to what the prognosis is for his recovery time and whether the Patriots think it’s worth sacrificing a spot on the 53-man roster for an extended period to keep the option of having Thomas potentially ready to return.
That decision could be made as soon as today, when Thomas goes for a follow-up.
