Saint’s wide receiver Michael Thomas wasn’t seen at practice. After a great start to the year with 16 catches, 171 yards, and 3 TDs, he hasn’t played since Week 3.
Although wide receiver Michael Thomas (foot) has no set return date, according to head coach Dennis Allen of the New Orleans Saints, he is anticipated to play this season and is making significant progress in his recovery.
In Week 8’s match with the Las Vegas Raiders, the 29-year-old was ruled out for a fifth straight game, and Jarvis Landry (ankle) will also be sidelined for another contest.
With 149 receptions in 2019, Thomas holds the record for the most reception by a player in a single season. In 2019, he won NFL Offensive Player of the Year.
On May 13, 2022, Landry agreed to a one-year deal with the New Orleans Saints. Landry began the year by defeating the Atlanta Falcons 27-26 with seven receptions for 114 yards.
While Landry is currently healing from an ankle injury, Thomas is battling with a foot issue. If there is a positive in this situation, it is that Chris Olave will have plenty of time to get used to being the top wide receiver for an NFL team during the time they are absent.
Thomas had another productive game in Week 2 against the Buccaneers, losing 20-10 despite catching six of his nine targets for 65 yards and a touchdown. Thomas missed a substantial amount of playing time after leaving a game against the Carolina Panthers in Week 3 due to a foot ailment.
Thomas will miss his fourth game of the current season. Chris Olave has served as the team’s top receiver while his absence.
It implies that rookie Chris Olave, Marquez Callaway & Tre’Quan Smith will continue to be the team’s top three wide receivers and that Juwan Johnson, a tight end, will also get more opportunities.
