Saints Place WR Michael Thomas on IR, Expected to Miss Rest of Season With Toe Injury
In another major setback for the Saints' star receiver, Michael Thomas is headed to IR and is expected to miss the rest of the season.
New Orleans Saints head coach Dennis Allen made the announcement while speaking to reporters on Thursday afternoon (Nov 3.).
According to Allen, Thomas' toe did not respond the way doctors were hoping it would. Complications with the toe led to the decision to have surgery.
There is no timetable for Thomas' return which led Allen to say he didn't expect his star receiver to return this season.
According to Nick Underhill, Thomas dislocated his second toe.
This is another brutal blow for Mike Thomas as he worked hard to rehab back after injuries have kept him off the field for what seems like years.
We will update this story when and if more information becomes available, but for what it's worth, we may have seen Michael Thomas put on black & gold for the last time.
