Terrell Thomas Accused of Smashing Window During New York Giants' Bye Week

COMMENTARY | Terrell Thomas is a warrior.

The 28-year-old New York Giants' cornerback has battled back to the NFL after three ACL surgeries to help the Giants string together a four-game win streak this season, but Thomas could find himself in some legal trouble after TMZ reports (h/t New York Daily News) that the defensive back reportedly smashed a window in his ex-girlfriend's house during the Giants' Bye week.

According to TMZ, the woman is the mother of one of Thomas' children and the event occurred in Los Angeles on Nov. 3--one week after the G-Men handed the rival Philadelphia Eagles a 15-7 loss at Lincoln Financial Field.

TMZ reports that the woman told police that she was not attacked and wasn't physically harmed by Thomas, which led to her declining to press charges against the Giants' defender. This is certainly good news for Big Blue, as it can't afford to lose Thomas at this crucial point in the season.

At 4-6, New York enters Week 12 with a pivotal matchup looming vs. the Dallas Cowboys, as a win would put the Giants one step closer to gaining ground in the NFC East and clinching a playoff berth.

The G-Men have boasted a resurgent defense of late, surrendering an average of just 11.7 points per game during their four-game win streak. That's in complete opposition to the 34.8 points the Giants were allowing when they began the season 0-6.

Thomas has been a big part of the defensive turnaround, especially given the injuries that have mounted up in New York's secondary. He's the fifth-leading tackler on the Giants and is responsible for one interception and a forced fumble this season while starting five games for New York.

While we wait for more facts and information to come in about the incident, all Giants fans can do is hope that their nickel corner doesn't miss any time and isn't affected by the events that apparently took place on Nov. 3 in L.A.
