New Orleans Saints place WR Michael Thomas on injured reserve


In news first reported by NewOrleans.Football’s Brooke Kirchhofer, the New Orleans Saints are placing wide receiver Michael Thomas on injured reserve.  Thomas will be out for a minimum of four games before being eligible to return after the Giants home game on Dec. 17, and is expected to return this season. He will miss the team’s matchups against the Falcons, Lions, Panthers, and Giants.

While Thomas’ exact injury is still unknown at this point, it is related to his knee and occurred on the first offensive play against the Vikings in Week 10. The team said they were looking at second opinions following the game.

The Saints will add veteran Cameron Dantzler to their active roster as a corresponding move, and the Marquez Callaway to the practice squad transaction will be official on Tuesday.
