Giants cornerback Terrell Thomas will have surgery next Friday to repair the torn ACL injury that ended his season.

On Thursday, he posted a message on his personal blog explaining the toll the injury has taken on him -- both physically and mentally -- since it happened in the Giants' second preseason game against Chicago.

"I was devastated after the injury," Thomas writes. "I had to get away to gather my thoughts, that is why I haven’t been active on Twitter and Facebook. I truly appreciate all my fans and followers; I feel that I let everybody down."

Thomas was having a great preseason prior to the injury and looked to be on the cusp of a strong season.

"This is the biggest example of life doesn't always goes as planned," Thomas writes. "God has a plan for you and sometimes you can't question or understand it but you have to go with it and this is what God has planned for me."

The cornerback is looking forward to surgery on Friday and will provide updates on his rehabilitation via social media. You can read Thomas' blog entry in its entirety here.

The Giants' secondary clearly missed Thomas in Week 1. Redskins quarterback Rex Grossman, who barely beat out John Beck for the starting job, threw for over 300 yards and two touchdowns in Washington's 28-14 win.

Aaron Ross, Thomas' replacement, was beat badly twice late in the first half on a pivotal Redskins' touchdown drive.
