Michael Thomas sustained a high-ankle injury during the Saints’ opening win of the season over the Buccaneers. And while Thomas was not initially expected to miss a lot, if playing at any point, the injury is worse than when he started, According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelisserso. Pelecerso has reported that the star receiver is now expected to miss for several weeks.

With Tampa Bay near the goal line late on Sunday, Thomas Alvin Kamara rolled backwards and fell out of the ground. The 27-year-old entered 2020 after a record-setting campaign a year earlier, where he recorded the most receptions (149) in a season in NFL history. Thomas led the league with 1,725 ​​yards receiving and added nine touchdowns to his name, making himself one of the best receivers in the game today. How much this injury reduces its impact within the Saints offense remains to be determined.

Of course, it also hurts the fantasy owners as to what it does to the crime of New Orleans. If he is limited or forced to miss time, Drew Brees will hold onto tight-end Jared Cook and leave behind Alvin Kamara, who both won five receptions. Veteran receiver Emmanuel Sanders – who is in his first season with the Saints – could also be a factor after catching a touchdown from the trees on Sunday. Keep an eye on receiver Tre’Kuan Smith to play a larger role in Thomas’ absence after receiving praise from Sean Peyton during training camp.
