Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Julius Thomas will have finger surgery Wednesday.
Thomas could miss up to a month with the injury, reports Rapoport. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Thomas was expecting to undergo surgery, but sought a second opinion Tuesday.
Thomas was injured during the Jaguars’ preseason opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Jacksonville signed Thomas, 27, to a five-year, $46 million deal in March.
Thomas spent the first four seasons of his career in Denver. After playing in only nine games his first two seasons, Thomas played in 27 in 2013 and 2014, scoring 12 touchdowns each year.
In his career, Thomas has 109 catches for 1,282 yards and 24 touchdowns.
