Washington Redskins players are telling The Washington Times that Randy Thomas has torn the triceps in his right arm and that he’ll likely miss the rest of the season.
Thomas missed most of the 2007 season with a torn left triceps. He also missed the end of the 2005 season with an ankle injury, including the playoff run.
After the game, Thomas told reporters: “Won’t know until tomorrow. There’s a lot of swelling.”
That leaves the Redskins in a tough spot on the offensive line, as they had less depth at that position than any in the trenches. Former Virginia Tech center Will Montgomery replaced Thomas after he left the game, and the team kept former third round pick Chad Rinehardt and undrafted rookie Edwin Williams (Maryland) inactive for Sunday’s game.
A Redskins source said it was “doubtful” the team would pursue bringing back Pete Kendall, who started for the team the last two years at left guard. Kendall was not re-signed in the offseason and has not joined any other club.
