On Tuesday, the Indianapolis Colts watched offensive guard Donald Thomas go down with an injury. There was some fear that he re-injured his quadriceps and that was confirmed on Wednesday morning.
According to Pro Football Talk, a MRI has confirmed that Thomas suffered a torn quadriceps for the second straight season.
In 2013 after signing a four-year, $14 million deal in free agency, Thomas was injured two games into the season. No, after missing 14 games last season, he is expected to miss the entire 2014-15 regular season.
The next man up on the depth chart for the Colts is rookie Jack Mewhort.
It is obviously less than an ideal scenario for the Colts, who need to find a way to protect star quarterback Andrew Luck if they want to really take their team to the next level.
Losing Donald Thomas for another season is not going to help the Indianapolis Colts one bit.
