The Carolina Panthers have announced that starting cornerback Josh Thomas will not play Sunday against the New York Giants.

Thomas had been listed as questionable on the team's initial injury report distributed on Friday, but after meeting with independent physicians later in the afternoon it was determined he's yet ready to play.

Thomas said on Twitter he is being held out by doctors ''for precautionary reasons.''

Panthers coach Ron Rivera said earlier Friday that either Drayton Florence or Josh Norman would start opposite Captain Munnerlyn at cornerback against the Giants.
