Week 1 injury report roundup: Tyrann Mathieu, Michael Thomas questionable

The New Orleans Saints will be taking on the Atlanta Falcons in Week 1, and Chris Simms and Mike Florio explain why the Saints could take this win with a new head coach.

The first week of the 2022 NFL season kicked off on Thursday with a win by the Bills and it continues with 14 more games on Sunday, which means that the 28 teams in those games submitted their final injury reports of the week on Friday.

The teams playing on Monday night won’t release their final injury reports until Saturday and are not listed here.

Saints at Falcons

WR Michael Thomas (hamstring) drew an expected questionable tag for the Saints as he works back from missing all of last season and this summer’s soft tissue injury, but Tyrann Mathieu (illness) getting the same designation was a surprise. Mathieu missed practice on Friday. CB Paulson Adebo (ankle), WR Tre’Quan Smith (shoulder), and RB Dwayne Washington (hamstring) have been ruled out while S J.T. Gray (hamstring) and T Landon Young (hip) are also questionable.

Falcons WR Drake London (knee) is questionable to make his NFL debut this weekend. CB Darren Hall (quad) is in the same category.
