 ASHBURN, Va. (AP) -Washington Redskins right guard Randy Thomas had surgery Wednesday on his torn left triceps, then tried to hold out hope he could return this season.
Thomas will wear a splint for six weeks and could possibly play again in 10 to 12 weeks, opening the possibility he could be back in the lineup for the season's homestretch in December.
However, the Redskins must decide whether it's worth using a roster spot for a player who will miss most of the season. Instead, the team could place Thomas on injured reserve, officially ending his season, and sign another player in his spot.
The Redskins worked out some available offensive linemen Wednesday. Coach Joe Gibbs said he wanted a full medical evaluation on Thomas before deciding whether to put him on injured reserve.
``It's in their hands,'' Thomas said. ``If there's a percentage (chance) of me being able to play this year, I want to be there. Even if it doesn't go my way, I'm still going to be around.''
Thomas was uncertain how he was hurt. He said he was in a usual hard tussle with a defensive player during pass protection late in the first quarter of Monday night's game against Philadelphia.
``I do what I always do,'' Thomas said. ``I hit him hard, and he hit me on the arm, and I guess the tightness of the muscle, it just gave. I don't know.''
Thomas is the second Redskins offensive lineman to have surgery in two weeks. Right tackle Jon Jansen was lost for the season with an ankle injury in the season opener. Tenth-year veteran Jason Fabini is taking Thomas' spot in the lineup.
Thomas, renowned for his extremely voracious appetite, reassured his teammates that he can still host cookouts at his house.
``What do you mean?'' he said. ``I can flip steaks with my right hand, brother.''
