New York Giants cornerback Terrell Thomas says he has been cleared by doctors to return to football activity after his third ACL surgery reports Alex Marvez of FOX Sports. However, despite being cleared to practice, the Giants are bringing him along slow as a precaution.

“There’s no hurry. There’s no rush,” said Thomas previously. “There wasn’t one last year. I was just ahead of schedule last year. This year, we’re kind of just taking it a little bit slower as far as rehab, building the foundation. I’m doing everything already. It’s just doing it a little bit more slower and not in a rush to get out there for OTAs or mini-camp.”

Thomas has undergone surgery to repair a torn ACL a total of three times in his career; once in each of the last two years. The coaches are wise to ease him back into action, though it has been reported that Thomas' knee looks strong.

If Thomas' knee can hold up after being under the knife three times, he could really help out one of the thinner positions on the Giants' depth chart, but of course at this point that is a huge question mark.
