CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Cleveland Browns offensive tackle Joe Thomas, regarded as one of the toughest players in the league, suffered a season-ending injury after an MRI revealed a torn triceps in his left arm, according to ESPN.com.
During a conference call, he said he will likely have surgery on Tuesday and that a complete recovery could take as long as six to nine months.
"Am I done playing? I don't know," Thomas said. "I think that's a decision that's best talked about in the offseason."
Thomas, 32, a pro bowl offensive lineman who was named 2016's Walter Payton Man of the Year, has one year left on his contract.
In an unprecedented feat, Thomas had not missed a single snap during his 10-year career with the Browns.
