New York Giants cornerback Walter Thurmond will have surgery and miss the rest of the season after tearing a pectoral muscle.

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.

MMQB: After hell week, NFL saved Sunday? 

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.
