Phillip Thomas Readying Himself For 2014 Season

Poised to make an impact early, Washington Redskins safety Phillip Thomas saw his rookie season end before the regular season even began.

In the team’s first preseason game last season vs. the Tennessee Titans, Thomas suffered a torn Lisfranc ligament that would sideline him for the entire season.

It was a tough blow for the rookie defensive back, one of three drafted by the organization during the 2013 NFL Draft, but with months of focused injury rehab over, Thomas is ready to influence wide receivers’ decisions to run a route his way once again.

Found in this article posted by ESPN’s John Keim last week, Thomas said he’s ‘feeling great’ after a season away from football.

“I’m 100 percent. Running around. I feel I’m moving like I was before with no hesitation and not second-guessing myself now.”

During an open media session of OTAs last week, Thomas hauled in an incredible interception after disengaging from his coverage and making a fully-extended dive towards the ball.

It was enough to get the attention of the media who then asked head coach Jay Gruden about the play during his press conference.

“Phillip’s done a great job,” Gruden said. “He had a great interception today. He’s just getting back in the flow and [Defensive Backs Coach] Raheem [Morris] is working with him and doing a good job, and between he and [safety Brandon] Meriweather, we expect good things from that safety spot.”

During his senior season at Fresno State, Thomas led all NCAA Division I players in interceptions with eight and became the school’s first unanimous All-American first-team selection.
