Colts Injury Update: Donald Thomas tears quad again

By on 7/31/2014 01:30:00 PM

Indianapolis Colts offensive lineman Donald Thomas will miss the entire season after tearing his quadricep, ProFootballTalk reported.

Thomas suffered the exact same injury last season, his first with the Colts, causing him to miss the team's final 14 games. Since signing a four-year, $14 million deal with the Colts last March, Thomas has played in just 70 snaps.

Head coach Chuck Pagano confirmed the injury to writer Kevin Bowen this morning.

"We got an MRI late last night and he did re-injure that quad,” Pagano said. “We feel awful for Donald. We all saw, he was playing extremely well.”

Earlier today, the Colts placed Thomas on IR, officially ending his season.

The team likely will try to replace him with Jack Mewhort, a second round selection from Ohio State.

Thomas becomes the third Colt to suffer a season-ending injury this offseason, joining Fili Moala, who injured himself working out, and Vick Ballard, who tore his ACL in practice last week.
