    Donald Thomas back in time for regular season?

    So, Donald Thomas has a torn pectoral. I did some searching to try and find a similar case to see what a realistic expectation is for him to get back on the field. I found that in 2004, William Joseph tore his pectoral right after the draft, had surgery and was well enough to play the first regular season game of that season.

    Using Joseph as an example, I think we will see Donald Thomas starting the first game of the season. Thoughts?

    I think Ricky Williams had the same injury in 07 and was out for the season...

    Ricky's injury happened in his first game back against Pittsbugh which was in late November. There was no way he was going to have surgery, rehab and be back for any of the remaining four or five games.

    Whether Thomas can be back in time for the regular season opener depends on the severity of the injury and if it required surgery. I may have missed it but I don't recall him having surgery. If he doesn't require surgery then it may just be a partial tear or strain and will only needs to be immobilized and rested before rehab begins.

    I remember Allen Bailey tearing his pectoral muscle for the Canes pretty late last offseason and he was able to come back in time for the game against the Gators. With Thomas though, he didn't get much PT last year anyways due to his injury. They will probably work him back slow and we may not see him for the first couple games. I just hope we don't have a "bubble boy" on our hands here. I really liked what the veteran players were saying about this guy last year around this time.
