  • Bengals' Mike Thomas: Re-signs with Bengals

    Thomas is re-signing with the Bengals on Thursday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Thomas will return for a third straight season in Cincinnati, where he recorded five catches for 52 yards on 11 targets last year. The depth wideout and special-teams contributor remains off the fantasy radar, however.

  • Bengals' Mike Thomas: Modest production

    Thomas secured five of 11 targets for 52 yards across 12 games in 2021. Thomas took a statistical step back in 2021, a campaign which saw him play roughly just half the offensive snaps (133) he did in 2020. This offseason, the 27-year-old is scheduled to hit free agency.

  • Bengals' Mike Thomas: Lands on COVID list

    Thomas (undisclosed) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports. It's unclear whether Thomas tested positive for the virus of if he's considered a close contact, but he'll now be unavailable until he clears the health and safety protocols. He has only five catches for 52 yards in 10 games this season, so his absence shouldn't affect Cincinnati's offensive game plan.

  • Bengals' Mike Thomas: Inactive against Chargers

    Thomas (illness) is inactive Week 13 against the Chargers, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports. Thomas did not practice all week due to illness and entered the week with a doubtful tag as a result. He had primarily been a special teamer when active this season, a role that could end up in the hands Trenton Irwin or the recently activated Pooka Williams.

  • Bengals' Mike Thomas: Doubtful due to illness

    Thomas (illness) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Bengals team reporter Marisa Contipelli reports. Thomas looks like he'll miss out on a potential opportunity for a few extra snaps on offense, as fellow wide receiver Auden Tate (calf) is also listed as doubtful. The 27-year-old Thomas hasn't caught more than one pass in a game this season.

  • Bengals' Mike Thomas: Not practicing due to illness

    Thomas (illness) missed a second consecutive practice Thursday, Ben Baby of ESPN reports. Thomas is in danger of sitting out Sunday's game against the Chargers due to this non-COVID illness. A return to the practice field in any capacity Friday would be an encouraging sign for his availability.

  • Bengals' Mike Thomas: Nabs first reception since Week 4

    Thomas played nine of the Bengals' 70 offensive snaps and caught his lone target for a 16-yard gain in Sunday's 41-16 loss to the Browns. The reception was Thomas' first since Week 4, as he was sidelined with an ankle injury from Weeks 5 through 7 before failing to draw a target in his return to the lineup Week 8 against the Jets. While all of Ja'Marr Chase, Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd are healthy, Thomas is expected to handle a minor role in the passing attack and rotate in only when one of the three starters needs a breather.

  • Bengals' Mike Thomas: Healthy scratch Sunday

    Thomas (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game at Baltimore, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports. Thomas sat out the last two games while nursing an ankle injury, and he'll remain inactive Sunday despite practicing with no limitations this week. Cincinnati's receiving corps is fully healthy for Week 7, with Trenton Irwin and Stanley Morgan serving as the available depth options.

    Thomas (ankle) was a full practice participant Wednesday, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports. Thomas sat out the past two games due to the ankle issue, but he's on track to be available for Week 7. The 27-year-old is unlikely to have a significant role in the offense with the rest of the receiving corps currently healthy.

Thomas sat out Sunday's loss to the Packers due to the ankle issue, but he's back at practice to start this week. The 27-year-old should be able to avoid an injury designation for Week 6 if he can progress to full practice participation Thursday or Friday.

  • Bengals' Mike Thomas: Won't play, as expected

    Thomas (ankle) is inactive Week 5 against the Packers, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports. Thomas entered the week with a "doubtful" tag after missing practice entirely Friday. With few contributions on offense this season, coupled with the return of Tee Higgins (shoulder), Thomas likely wouldn't have been much of a fantasy factor anyway.

    Thomas (ankle) won't play Sunday against the Packers, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports. Thomas has just three catches for 24 yards this season, so his absence is unlikely to have much of an impact on Cincinnati's game plan offensively.

  • Bengals' Mike Thomas: Managing ankle issue

    Thomas was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice due to an ankle injury, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports. Thomas apparently picked up the injury during Thursday's win over the Jaguars, when he caught his lone target for zero yards. The fact the 27-year-old is opening the week as a limited participant indicates the injury isn't a serious concern.

  • Bengals' Mike Thomas: One catch in Week 4

    Thomas had one catch for zero yards on his only target in the Week 4 win over the Jaguars. Thomas moved one step up in the pecking order with Tee Higgins once again out and had 17 offensive snaps, but he served more as a decoy and downfield blocker.

  • Bengals' Mike Thomas: Catches one pass in win

    Thomas caught his only target for 19 yards in Sunday's 24-10 win over the Steelers. The 27-year-old played on just 10 offensive snaps in the contest, amounting to a 21 percent share. Even with fellow wideout Tee Higgins sidelined with a shoulder injury, Thomas was not a big part of the Bengals' game plan. Through three weeks, he has totaled 24 yards on just two catches. Thomas remains well off the fantasy radar entering a Week 4 tilt against the Jaguars.

  • Bengals' Mike Thomas: Catches one pass in season opener

    Thomas caught one of three targets for five yards during Sunday's 27-24 win over the Vikings. Thomas appears planted as the No. 4 wideout behind Ja'Marr Chase, Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd. He caught 13 passes for 132 yards and one touchdown last season and will look to build off that performance during the 2021 campaign.
