The Las Vegas Raiders have caught a major break as the NFL Network is reporting New Orleans Saints star wide receiver Michael Thomas to be out for several weeks with an ankle injury and he will miss Monday night’s game in Las Vegas .
Thomas is as tough as he comes and will certainly try to defy that timeline. But it will be a fight.

Thomas suffered an injury after a win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, with the Saints thought he would be able to play against the Raiders, but the injury is more serious than originally thought.
This is a major game-plan change for the Raiders, who have a young secondary. Thomas was a terrible matchup for the Raiders. He caught 149 catches for 1,725 yards last season. The Saints still have a high-powered offense, but they will surely miss Thomas.
This week, the Raiders reportedly received good news on injuries regarding linebackers Nick Nikiatkowski (PEC) and righty Trent Brown (calf) and the Saints just received some horrific injury news.
Let us see how it affects the result of Monday night.
