CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) – Browns left tackle Joe Thomas had surgery to repair a ruptured left triceps tendon Tuesday morning.

The procedure was successful according to the Browns and “a full recovery is expected” for Thomas.

Thomas said Monday that he expects rehab to take 6-9 months but he is undecided if he will return next year which is the final year of his contract.

Thomas, who is 1 of only 5 players in history to make the Pro Bowl in each of his first 10 seasons, suffered the injury with 5:40 left in the third quarter of Sunday’s 12-9 overtime loss to the Tennessee Titans ending his record consecutive snaps streak at 10,363.

    This man is a picture of loyalty. His teammates should rally to his cause and if this should be his last season they should play with all the heart and passion to make it a respectable season. None of his teammates measure up to his standards and for sure do not have the heart of a lion like Mr Joe Thomas. They could have, but for some reason they don’t have the desire to go the extra mile needed to become a winner. Mental mistakes are a huge clue as to where their heads are. Not quite in the game. Someday, maybe, this team will work as a team but as of today, not so much. I hope Mr. Joe Thomas has a speedy and full recovery. I know he’ll have a hard time watching from the sideline. I wish him well and hope we see him back and with a team that is willing to put forth the same effort that he put forth each and every single day, on and off the field. A roll model for the youth of today.
