Michael Thomas to miss start of season because of surgery.
LINK

quote:

Sources: #Saints star WR Michael Thomas is expected to miss the start of the 2021 season after undergoing surgery to repair the ligaments in his ankle in June. Based on the timing of the surgery – and recommended 4 months of recovery – Thomas could be on the sideline for weeks.

quote:

In light of the Michael Thomas news, the #Saints have been nosing around free-agent wide receivers, sources say. Expect them to at least work out a few in the coming days.


Why he would wait until now to have the surgery makes no sense.

a 2nd injury that was suffered in "garbage time" that had a massive detrimental effect to our 2020 season

the other being Kwon's torn Achilles

MT13's injury was suffered very late in week 1 vs. TB

re: Michael Thomas to miss start of season because of surgery.
I wouldn’t call the injury to MT13 during garbage time. The saints were up 2 scores with 10 minutes left against Tom Brady. It was also week 1 so you needed all the reps you can possibly get. It was a freak accident on a running play.

When it doesn’t heal like they anticipated. It’s not like thomas is dictating when he has surgery

I had heard about concerns on Michael Thomas, but not enough to report on at the time. This goes in line with what I was hearing. Another tough blow for the Saints.


Thank you Larry for continuing to prove the NOLA sports media is worthless

If I knew about it weeks ago then I assume the media knew about it and didn't report it.

Previous reports stated he needed multiple surgeries so it’s likely this isn’t the first surgery he’s had to recover from this offseason, which would delay this surgery

Sometimes I wish MT was just a Tyreke Hill type or someone that goes off and gets a dui or something. Dude is the most annoying off the field knucklehead that never actually does anything illegal. Which is so weirdly frustrating.
