Saints HC Dennis Allen said Michael Thomas’ recovery from a knee injury is “gonna take some time.”
This was kind of expected. Thomas exited Week 10’s contest against the Saints with what Allen called a “fairly significant” injury at the time. While he didn’t hint at whether or not Thomas would end up on injured reserve, it doesn’t sound like that option is off the table. Rookie A.T. Perry stepped in to lead the Saints with 56 snaps after Thomas left, and could be in line for a busy Week 12 against the Falcons. Still, Perry will be hard to trust for fantasy purposes with Chris Olave, Rashid Shaheed, and Alvin Kamara all ahead of him in the pecking order.
