BEREA, Ohio — Joe Thomas felt the injury occur and even before the pain registered, the Cleveland Browns’ seemingly indestructible tackle realized everything had changed.

His day was over. His season done. His career in doubt.

Thomas suffered a torn left triceps during Sunday’s loss to Tennessee and will miss the rest of his 11th NFL season, a devastating blow to the perennial Pro Bowler and winless Browns.

Thomas, 32, who had never missed a snap since turning pro in 2007, will undergo surgery Tuesday and could need nine months to recover from a serious injury that has left him pondering his future beyond this season. Thomas is still processing what happened and said he’ll wait until the offseason before deciding whether to keep playing or retire.

“Am I done playing? I don’t know,” he said. “Right now it’s too early to make any decisions. Obviously you go through a range of emotions after an injury like that, and I think it’s the most fair to myself and my teammates to just wait until after the season to really kind of sit down with my family, and kind of discuss what the future looks like.”

VIKINGS: The NFL suspended safety Andrew Sendejo for one game for violating player safety rules in Sunday’s victory against Baltimore.

Sendejo’s hit on receiver Mike Wallace on Baltimore’s second series was directly to the head. Wallace’s helmet flew off during the collision, and Sendejo was penalized for unnecessary roughness.

RAIDERS: Running back Marshawn Lynch presented his appeal to the NFL to overturn his one-game suspension for bumping an official.

Coach Jack Del Rio said he hopes to get a final ruling by Tuesday on whether Lynch is eligible to play Sunday at Buffalo.

CHUCK WEBER, a former Philadelphia Eagles linebacker died Sunday. He was 87.

A seven-year NFL veteran, Weber spent his final three seasons in Philadelphia (1959-61) where he played in 38 games and helped the Eagles win the 1960 NFL championship. He also coached in the league for 21 years, including 1964-67 as the defensive backfield coach for the Boston Patriots.

CHARGERS: Left guard Matt Slauson will miss the rest of the season with a biceps injury.

BILLS: Buffalo claimed cornerback Tony McRae off waivers, two days after being waived by Baltimore.

COLTS: Rookie safety Malik Hooker will miss the rest of the season after injuring his right knee in Sunday’s 27-0 loss to Jacksonville.

LIONS: Detroit activated defensive tackle Khyri Thornton and waived quarterback Brad Kaaya.

GIANTS: Coach Ben McAdoo is sticking with Eli Manning as the quarterback in what has become a frustrating, lost season.


EAGLES 34, WASHINGTON 24: Carson Wentz tossed four touchdown passes, and Philadelphia won at home.

Wentz threw for 268 yards and ran for a career-best 63 after a shaky start to lead the NFL-best Eagles (6-1) to their fifth straight win. But the victory was costly because nine-time Pro Bowl left tackle Jason Peters was carted off the field with a knee injury in the third quarter.

Kirk Cousins had 303 yards passing and three TDs for Washington (3-3).
