The end of the collegiate road has been marked for outside linebacker Travis Thomas, who sustained a torn Achilles tendon in last Saturday's loss to Gardner-Webb.

Before this season, Travis Thomas was expected to be a helpful anchor for the Terrier defense, as he helped to complete a strong corps of linebackers fortified by the likes of Kevin Thomas, among others.
So far this season, Thomas had recorded eleven tackles, including four in the season opener against Georgia Tech, five against North Greenville, and two last week at Gardner-Webb.
While this might prove to be a major blow to the Wofford defense, only time and the continued implementation of fresh faces at outside linebacker will tell how this will affect the team in the long run.
For now, we can only wait and hope for the best in both Thomas' injury situation and our squad's future outlook.
