Dolphins signed S Phillip Thomas and RB Demitrius Bronson.

Thomas was the 119th pick in the 2013 draft by the Redskins but never got on track in D.C. thanks to a rookie-year Lisfranc injury that cost him the entire season. He spent half of 2014 on the practice squad before getting the call-up midway through the season. Thomas will compete for a final roster spot.

Redskins waived S Phillip Thomas.

Thomas was the 119th pick in the 2013 draft, but appeared in just eight games with the Redskins after missing his entire rookie season with a broken foot. The previous regime liked Thomas, but new GM Scot McCloughan has thrown in the towel. The Redskins signed CB Bryan McCann in a corresponding move.

Redskins signed S Phillip Thomas off their practice squad.

Thomas will take the roster spot of DE Clifton Geathers. A fourth-round pick of the Redskins in 2013, Thomas missed his entire rookie season with a Lisfranc fracture and was waived at final cuts this season. He is expected to make his NFL debut on Sunday.
Sat, Nov 1, 2014 01:11:00 PM

Redskins waived or released S Phillip Thomas, K Zach Hocker, CB Chase Minnifield, WR Nick Williams, OL Maurice Hurt and OLB Everette Brown.

Thomas was the 119th pick in last year's draft. He couldn't stay on the field. Thomas missed his entire rookie season with a Lisfranc fracture and was battling a less serious injury to the same foot this summer. It's sad he couldn't overtake Brandon Meriweather at strong safety. Hocker was a seventh-round pick in May. Brown was the 43rd overall pick of the 2009 draft.

According to CSN Washington, "preliminary indications" are that Redskins S Phillip Thomas’ foot injury is not serious.

Concern was high after Thomas re-injured the (left) foot that cost him all of 2013 with a Lisfranc fracture, but it appears the Redskins have dodged a bullet. Thomas' health has taken on increased importance after Brandon Meriweather was suspended for the first two games of the season. For now, Thomas should be considered day to day, and questionable for Week 1.

Redskins S Phillip Thomas is sidelined with a left foot injury.

It's the same foot that cost Thomas all of 2013 with a Lisfranc fracture. Coach Jay Gruden called it a "concern." The 2013 fourth-rounder previously missed time this summer with a hamstring injury. Thomas is a candidate to be waived/injured.
Mon, Aug 25, 2014 03:52:00 PM

Redskins second-year S Phillip Thomas has missed the past two weeks with a hamstring injury and is on the roster bubble.

This is another case of a broken foot leading to further injury; Thomas missed all of 2013 with a Lisfranc fracture. "Time’s running out," DC Jim Haslett said. "I don’t know the consequence, but obviously, it’s not good for him, or for us, if he’s not out there." Thomas was making plays in the spring and had the coaches wondering if he might overtake SS Brandon Meriweather. That's not going to happen now. The Redskins can't count on him to stay healthy.

Redskins second-year S Phillip Thomas is working as the second-team strong safety at OTAs.

He's behind Brandon Meriweather. Thomas is not expected to push for a starting job in 2014, but the Skins are hopeful he'll enter the mix next offseason with Meriweather on a one-year deal. Thomas missed all of his 2013 rookie season with a Lisfranc fracture. He was a fourth-round pick in last April's draft.
Fri, May 30, 2014 03:40:00 PM

Redskins GM Bruce Allen said the team was high on second-year SS Phillip Thomas last season before he landed on injured reserve with a Lisfranc injury.

"We had high hopes for him last year," Allen said. "He was going to start for us and he ended up missing the year." Thomas, the 119th overall pick last April, didn't play a snap as a rookie. It's unclear if the Redskins remain high on the center-field safety, but they certainly can't rely on him as a starter in 2014. Washington still has plenty of work to do on the back end of its defense.
Fri, Mar 21, 2014 12:48:00 PM

ESPN Redskins blogger John Keim expects SS Phillip Thomas to be used in a backup role in 2014.

A fourth-round pick, Thomas missed his entire rookie season with a Lisfranc injury two weeks into training camp. The Redskins have major concerns in their secondary going into 2014, but Thomas isn't being counted on as anything more than a rotational safety until he proves he's fully healthy. Barring any setbacks, Thomas is expected to be medically cleared for OTAs.
Fri, Jan 31, 2014 08:25:00 PM

Redskins placed S Phillip Thomas on injured reserve with a left Lisfranc fracture, ending his season.

The fourth-round pick will undergo surgery, and be sidelined 4-5 months. In theory, he'll be 100 percent for next year's offseason program. Journeyman Brandon Meriweather is now the prohibitive favorite to start opposite rookie Bacarri Rambo, who appears to have locked up a starting job. The Redskins also have DeJon Gomes and Reed Doughty on the roster. A big-time playmaker, Thomas was a first-team All American for Fresno State as a senior. He should compete for a starting job in 2014.
Tue, Aug 13, 2013 05:38:00 PM

Redskins rookie SS Phillip Thomas will consult Dr. Robert Anderson for a second opinion on his foot injury Tuesday.

Visits to Dr. Anderson don't typically turn out well. X-rays showed Thomas avoided a fractured foot, but a sprain could sideline him for a while, depending on the severity. Thomas is competing with Brandon Meriweather at strong safety.
Mon, Aug 12, 2013 05:41:00 PM

X-rays confirmed Redskins rookie SS Phillip Thomas avoided a fracture in his left foot, and he is considered day to day.

Thomas actually hurt both his left foot and right shoulder in Washington's preseason opener. Neither injury is viewed as significant. "He’s a little sore right now," said coach Mike Shanahan. "Mid-foot. ... It’ll probably be a few days." Thomas is pushing SS Brandon Meriweather for a starting job.
Sat, Aug 10, 2013 08:37:00 PM

Redskins rookie S Phillip Thomas suffered a mid-foot sprain in Thursday's preseason opener.

Thomas was spotted in a walking boot after the game. His season could in jeopardy if the "mid-foot" sprain ends up being of the Lisfranc variety. Thomas has been penciled in behind SS Brandon Meriweather, who can't stay healthy.
