Washington soccer team tight end Logan Thomas He’s facing a longer recovery after further tests revealed a ruptured ACL, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Thomas is expected to undergo surgery this week and be ready to start the 2022 season.
Washington initially feared that Thomas tore his ACL and MCL in his left knee in the December 5 game against the Las Vegas Raiders. However, more tests the following week revealed damage to the knee – but not to the ACL. The organization breathed a collective sigh of relief, realizing that his recovery would be much easier without rupturing the ACL.
But even last week, after Thomas was placed in injured reserve, coach Ron Rivera said doctors “will be watching it. They will ask another doctor to see it.”
Prior to his placement in the IR, Washington discussed keeping Thomas on the active 53-player roster in case the team makes the playoffs and could use him at some point in the post-season. Because it was his second stay on IR, he ended his season. At the time, Rivera said they didn’t want to bring Thomas back so quickly.
Thomas had signed a three-year extension worth up to $24.065 million in August. He picked up 72 high passes for 670 yards and six touchdowns in 2020 and became one of the best red zone goals in the NFL on a tight end. This season, Thomas has been limited to six games — he missed five games with a hamstring injury — and has collected 18 assists, three touchdowns, and 196 yards.
Ricky Sells Jones He took first place with Thomas out. The Seals-Jones had 24 passes for 238 yards and two touchdowns in 10 games.
