ASHBURN, Va. (AP) -Right guard Randy Thomas will have surgery Wednesday morning on his torn left triceps, the second major operation in two weeks on a Washington Redskins offensive lineman.
Thomas, who underwent an MRI on Tuesday, will have to wear a splint or cast for at least six weeks and will likely need rehabilitation for several weeks thereafter. Team officials said they would wait until after the surgery is performed to determine whether he could play again this season.
Thomas was hurt on the last offensive play of the first quarter in Monday night's 20-12 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. He was replaced by veteran Jason Fabini, who committed two false starts but otherwise held his own in another makeshift week for the offensive line.
Coach Joe Gibbs said Fabini will start next week's game against the New York Giants.
The Redskins were already adjusting to the loss of right tackle Jon Jansen, who broke his fibula and dislocated his ankle in the season opener. Eighth-year veteran Todd Wade started in place of Jansen on Monday night.
``Two guys in a row, two weeks in a row,'' Gibbs said. ``You never want to see it happen, and it was kind of hard for me to believe it did happen.''
