Giants lose Walter Thurmond for season with torn pectoral


A bad start to the season for the Giants just got worse.

Walter Thurmond, a cornerback who arrived in free agency from Seattle this offseason, has suffered a torn pectoral muscle and will miss the rest of the season. A league source told PFT that the diagnosis was made this morning.

Thurmond has started both games as the slot cornerback this season for the Giants, who are 0-2 following Sunday’s loss to the Cardinals. After Sunday’s game he said he couldn’t keep going because the Giants were asking him to play a lot of press coverage and the injury had weakened his upper body, although he didn’t sound after the game like he thought he had suffered a season-ending injury.

But that’s what he has. Now the Giants have one more position to worry about, in a season that is rapidly going downhill.
