PORTLAND – The Portland Thunder have placed quarterback Darron Thomas on injured reserve and will miss the remainder of the 2015 AFL season with a lower leg injury.
Thomas sustained the injury near the 6:00 minute mark of the second quarter in the Thunder’s 69-43 loss to the Orlando Predators last Saturday.
“Darron has been an integral part of the Thunder organization from Day 1,” stated owner Terry Emmert. “We wish him a speedy recovery, and look forward to seeing him back healthy.”
“It is a shame,” explained head coach Mike Hohensee. “He was just becoming the quarterback he wanted to be in this league. I know that if this team was looking for something to play for, this would be a good place to start. I hope I get another opportunity to coach Darron Thomas.”
In his three appearances this season, Thomas completed 38 of his 58 attempts, for 374 yards and 11 touchdowns. Thomas also carried eight times, for 11 yards, and an additional score.
