Some teammates feared Thomas risked re-injuring his leg because of his gung-ho attitude. Thomas dismissed such concerns.
"If you sit around and wait for it to heal then you're losing time and reps," Thomas said. "And I'm a different guy. When I come back I like to work it out and not just sit it out. I think I made myself better by getting on the field for [spring practices]. It kind of helped me get through the soreness."
Hail to Randy Thomas.
