Giants Activate OT Andrew Thomas

Daniel Jones will have his left tackle back in the lineup tonight. The Giants announced that they’ve activated Andrew Thomas from injured reserve.

Thomas suffered an ankle injury back in October that landed him on injured reserve for several weeks. The former fourth-overall pick had previously missed a game this season due to a foot injury, so the Giants decided to be cautious with their young lineman. The lineman discussed juggling a pair of injuries when he spoke with reporters earlier this week.

“Just managing both, trying to do what I can,” Thomas said (via Michael Eisen of the team’s website). “It depends on the day and how they feel, so just doing what I can to make sure I’m ready to play.

“It’s not easy, but it puts a lot of emphasis on my technique. Plays that I might not be able to make athletically, if I have the right technique, I’ll be in the right position, so that’s what I’m trying to do.”

Thomas started 15 of his 16 games during his rookie campaign. He started each of his five appearances in 2021, and he appeared in 100 percent of his team’s offensive snaps through the first four weeks. Matt Peart slid in as the starter while Thomas was out of the lineup.
