Indianapolis Colts Likely Lose Donald Thomas For Year


Colts RumorsIndianapolis Colts’ guard Donald Thomas has torn his quadriceps muscle, the same one he tore that cost him all but two games last season.

The injury to Thomas marks the second significant loss the Colts have to face on offense, and only a week into training camp. The other injury was to running back Vick Ballard who will be out for the season with a torn Achilles, suffered July 25th.

In all likelihood, Thomas will be forced to have surgery on the injured quad which will most likely cost him the entirety of the 2014-2015 season.

Thomas was injured late in the Colts’ Wednesday practice, and it became apparent to people there the injury was severe when, after finally managing to get off the ground, Thomas threw his helmet to the ground in frustration and anger.

The Colts’ second round pick this year, Jack Mewhort, will likely be slated to fill in for Thomas as a result of the injury.

Season ending injuries are always tough for any team to deal with, but after suffering the loss of it’s second important piece on offense so early in the year, the Colts’ offense is certainly in a difficult position.

The Colts, who played to an 11-5 season last year, have been largely led by their offense and former number 1 overall pick Andrew Luck, in recent years. Hopefully the injuries the team has suffered do not severely impact their outlook for the 2014 season, and though nobody wants to see anybody injured, the Colts have certainly dealt with their fair share already.
