A source tells Jenny Vrentas of the Newark Star-Ledger that cornerback Terrell Thomas had yet another surgery on his right ACL -- his third -- on Tuesday.

Thomas missed the 2011 season with an ACL tear, and when he aggravated the injury in July the team initially hoped he would be able to rehab it and avoid surgery. Evidently, that was not the case. An earlier arthroscopic procedure revealed a partial tear, and Thomas had it repaired by Dr. James Andrews. The source said that ideally Thomas would be cleared for football activity in six months.
