Thomas underwent surgery Tuesday to repair his torn left triceps.

EDGE Analysis

Thomas is expected to face a 6-to-9 month recovery timetable, which will result in him finishing the season on injured reserve for the first time in his storied career. The 10-time Pro Bowler, who is under contract through 2018, said that he intends to evaluate his future in the NFL once the current campaign concludes, so it appears retirement could be a possibility.

Thomas (triceps) was officially placed on injured reserve Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Thomas, who will undergo season-ending surgery this week to repair a torn left triceps, will need 6-to-9 months to recover from the procedure, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

If Thomas' rehab ends up veering to the longer end of that timetable, he could be limited by the time training camp begins next summer. Before Thomas' availability for camp is determined, however, it sounds like the 10-time Pro Bowler will take some time to weigh his future while he remains sidelined due to injury for the first time in his prolific career. Thomas is under contract with the Browns through the end of the 2018 season.

EDGE Analysis

Losing the previously durable Thomas is a major blow to the 0-7 Browns offensive line, with the report hinting that it's not a lock the stellar 11-year pro will return next season. He was replaced at left tackle Sunday against the Titans by Spencer Drango.
