Tough break for former Husky

Former UConn offensive lineman Donald Thomas suffered a torn right quad in Sunday's loss to Miami and will miss the remainder of the season according to multiple reports.

Thomas, signed as a free agent by the Indianapolis Colts, started the first two games of the season. Thomas began his career with Miami and played 17 games with 13 starts during the 2008 and 2009 seasons. He played for the New England Patriots during the last two seasons, playing all 16 games with seven starting assignments during the 2012 season.

Thomas had an amazing journey to the NFL which was documented by the late great Register columnist Dave Solomon back in a 2009 column as Thomas did not play high school varsity  football but worked his way onto the UConn team, began a sixth-round pick of the Dolphins in the 2008 NFL draft and signed a four-year, $14 million contract with the Colts earlier this year.
