Michael Thomas

The past couple of seasons, New Orleans Saints star wide receiver Michael Thomas has certainly not had the best luck with his health. And it looks like the former NFL Offensive Player of the Year is having some injury trouble once again.

New Orleans head coach Dennis Allen told reporters on Friday morning that Thomas will miss Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings in London, the team announced on Twitter.

Thomas has started each of the Saints’ three games so far this season, totaling 16 catches for 171 yards and three touchdowns after returning to the starting lineup. Before this season, Thomas had only started four games for the New Orleans Saints over the past two NFL seasons after an ankle injury cost him the entire 2021 season and the majority of the 2020 season.

It’s a concerning update for a receiver that dominated the league through his first four seasons, and the NFL world had plenty to say about it on Twitter.

In addition to Thomas’ absence, it also looks like the team will be without starting quarterback Jameis Winston, who has been listed as “doubtful.” In his place, veteran quarterback Andy Dalton is expected to start at quarterback for New Orleans.
