Michael Thomas caught an NFL-record 149 passes last season. This season, the Saints receiver can’t catch a break.
He has played only one game, making three receptions for 17 yards in the season opener.
Saints coach Sean Payton said Wednesday morning that Thomas’ discipline for punching teammate Chauncey Gardner-Johnson is complete but remained uncertain about Thomas’ status for Sunday because of his injury.
As it turns out, it’s injuries.
The Saints’ practice report lists Thomas limited with the ankle injury that has kept him out of three games as well as a new hamstring injury.
