Report: Dolphins safety Thomas out for season


The Miami Dolphins defense put forth an effort for the team record books in their shutout win against the Chargers, but it didn't come without some sacrifice.

Second-year safety Michael Thomas was injured in the fourth quarter and did not return Sunday, and sources have reported the 24-year-old will likely miss the rest of the season, according to the Palm Beach Post.

Thomas, who reportedly tore his pectoral muscle, was a contributor on special teams and also saw time on the field in nickel and dime packages.

The former Stanford star has played 98 snaps this season, according to ProFootballFocus, and he tallied 18 combined tackles, including three in Sunday's win.

His roster spot will likely be taken by Jordan Kovacs, who was re-signed by the team Monday. Kovacs spent about a month with the Philadelphia Eagles' practice squad after being released by Miami prior to the start of the regular season.
