Thomas suffered an ankle injury during Saturday's match versus Essendon and is scheduled to miss some time, Mark McGowan of the AFL's official site reports.
Thomas avoided missing time due to a concussion suffered the previous week, but that is set to change beginning in Round 7 following an ankle problem. The team has yet to verify the length of his expected absence, but that should be determined once the medical staff looks at his tests.

Thomas evidently has cleared concussion protocol to be ready in time for this contest. He's scored three times this season.
Dealing with concussion

Thomas suffered a concussion during Saturday's match with Western Bulldogs.
Thomas suffered a worrying blow after a bad landing on his right shoulder and head during an unsuccessful mark. With trainers surrounding him, it took time for Thomas to get off the pitch and halftime tests ruled him out for the rest of the match. More tests await Thomas during the week and all he can do is be optimistic.
Scores twice in win

Thomas scored two goals and made six disposals (four kicks, two handballs) during Sunday's 80-60 win over Greater Western Sydney.
Thomas didn't play as bug a role in disposals as is typical for a midfielder, but produced important plays to help his team get the result. In the end, this doesn't make him as reliable an option if he can't get his hands on the ball more often against Sydney Swans.
