Giants cornerback Terrell Thomas aggravated his ACL injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Giants cornerback Terrell Thomas says he may need between three and eight weeks to return to the field after "aggravating" his surgically repaired right ACL last week. Thomas missed all of last season after tearing the ligament in a preseason game. Under a new league rule, Thomas could be placed on the injured reserve once the 53-man roster is set and the Giants could then bring him back later in the season. Previously, anyone placed on injured reserve would be out for the season.

Analysis: If the Giants decide to go this route, the new rule will allow the team to take its time and get Thomas healthy. He had 5 interceptions in both 2009 and 2010 for New York before the ACL injury cost him last season. When he is ready, he could be a welcome addition to a defensive unit that is already considered an above-average fantasy option.
