Rookie Safety Phillip Thomas Placed on Injured Reserve with Lisfranc Injury
WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – Washington’s 4th-round draft pick Phillip Thomas will miss the entirety of his rookie season after suffering a Lisfranc injury during the Redskins’ first preseason game against the Titans on Thursday.
Head coach Mike Shanahan announced Tuesday the 24-year-old safety had been placed on season-ending Injured Reserve after seeking a second opinion from foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson in North Carolina.
The injury was updated from a bruised foot, which Shanahan had initially called it when he stated the team didn’t think Thomas had a Lisfranc injury.
WebMD classifies the injury as a fracture of the bones in the middle of your foot – the bones that form the arch on the top of your foot. Essentially, Thomas has a break in the part of the foot in which all five toes meet.
