  • Saints' Michael Thomas: Not participating in minicamp

    Thomas (ankle) didn't participate during Tuesday's mandatory minicamp practice, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports.

    The wideout spent half of practice rehabbing in the training facility and the other half watching from the sideline while wearing his uniform. Thomas hasn't practiced or played since 2020, so he wasn't expected to participate in minicamp. However, it's still encouraging to see the two-time NFL receptions leader engaged in team activities at this point in the offseason. The Saints have yet to comment on expectations for Thomas' availability during training camp, but they hope to have him back at some point during the 2022 campaign.

  • Saints' Michael Thomas: Not expected at minicamp

    Saints coach Dennis Allen doesn't expect Thomas (ankle) to participate in June minicamp, Rod Walker of the Times-Picayune reports.

    The Saints still hope to have the two-time NFL receptions leader available at some point, but it won't happen during the offseason program. While he's been spotted at the team facility, Thomas still hasn't practiced or played since 2020, and he ended up needing another surgery on his problematic ankle after experiencing a setback in October or November. The Saints haven't commented on expectations for training camp.

  • Saints' Michael Thomas: Not practicing yet

    Thomas (ankle) was at the Saints' facility Wednesday but didn't participate in practice, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

    His presence at voluntary practices is a sign Thomas is back on decent terms with the team, but his ankle remains a significant concern after he missed a big chunk of the 2020 season and the entire 2021 campaign. Head coach Dennis Allen acknowledged earlier this month that the wideout still had "a few hurdles" to clear in the rehab process, but both Allen and general manager Micky Loomis said they expect Thomas to be part of the team this season. It's possible he's targeting training camp for a return to practice.

  • Saints' Michael Thomas: Making progress

    Coach Dennis Allen noted that the Saints feel good about where Thomas (ankle) stands in terms of his injury rehab, but acknowledged that there's "still a few hurdles" ahead for the wideout.

    With that in mind, it seems as though Thomas -- who didn't play last season -- will be limited to some degree upon his return to the field. However, in the absence of any setbacks in the coming months, the 29-year-old appears poised to reclaim his spot atop the Saints' wideout depth chart which was recently bolstered by the team's selection of Chris Olave with the No. 11 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.
