Saints WR, Michael Thomas Done for the Season

The New Orleans Saints have officially put WR Michael Thomas on the shelf for the remainder of the year. Thomas, who started the season on IR had a designation to return by week seven after undergoing surgery to repair ligaments in his left ankle. The receiver put out a statement via Instagram Wednesday morning after a setback in his recovery. 

While the Saints are currently sitting at 5-2 on the season, they desperately needed the type of playmaking that Thomas brings. They’ll have to figure a way to improve on their 180.9 passing yards per game (31st) without Thomas and starting QB Jameis Winston for the remainder of the year.
