The Washington Commanders got another practice in today as they prepare for their 3rd, and final, preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens. Logan Thomas has returned to practice, and today was the first time he participated in 7-on-7 drills. He is less than 9 months removed from the knee injury that ended his season, and his teammates welcomed him back to the field with a round of applause.

Logan Thomas is participating in 7-on-7s. When he first stepped into the huddle, a handful of Commanders shouted their approval. “Yeah Lo!” He came off the PUP just two days ago— Pete Hailey (@PeteHaileyNBCS) August 24, 2022
Before TE Logan Thomas’s first rep in 7-on-7 — his first team drill — the defensive backfield applauded his return from his brutal left knee injury.— Sam Fortier (@Sam4TR) August 24, 2022
In the drill, Thomas ran a handful of routes but got no targets. Still, nice moment.
Thomas hasn’t caught a pass in seven on seven drills yet, but he’s moving well in his routes. Doesn’t look like he’s bothered by his knee at all— Zach Selby (@ZachSelbyWC) August 24, 2022

Dime from Sam Howell to Dax Milne in 7 on 7. Ball in the perfect spot for Milne to get the catch over DeJuan Neal and Ferrod Gardner.— David Harrison (@DHarrison82) August 24, 2022
