Saints place receiver Michael Thomas on injured reserve

Thomas to undergo surgery to repair leg injury.

Still the defensive back can't defend Michael Thomas.

New Orleans showed this very clearly during his three matches with the Saints this season.

The Saints kept the receiver for seven years because of a toe injury of Thomas.

The 2022 season is likely to end after three games.

Dennis Allen said, "After consulting with the doctors, we had a plan, we followed what the doctors thought would be the best plan for him."

The NFL missed more of an ankle injury in the 2019 season and underwent surgery for an injury last season as well.

He set a franchise record by catching five passes and two quarter-quarter touchdowns.
