Giants cornerback Walter Thurmond will have surgery after tearing a pectoral muscle and is out for the season.
Thurmond suffered the injury in New York’s 25-14 loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. An MRI confirmed the tear after it was previously thought Thurmond suffered a strain.
Thurmond signed a one-year, $3.5 million deal with the Giants in March after spending his first four NFL seasons with the Seattle Seahawks, helping them win the Super Bowl last season.
Trumaine McBride will likely take Thurmond’s place in the lineup.
