Michael Thomas twists ankle late in win

In what arguably amounted to garbage time during Sunday’s Saints-Buccaneers game, the victors may have sustained a setback.

Saints running back Alvin Kamara rolled up on the lower leg of Saints receiver Michal Thomas near the goal line. Thomas hobbled off.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Thomas was walking fine in the locker room after the win, but he hadn’t let the trainers look at it. They were still trying to examine him.

Eventually, they will. Eventually, we’ll find out whether it’s something that could slow down Thomas, who shattered the single-season receiving record in 2019.

  1. Payton really looked like he was trying to blow the Bucs out of an empty Superdome. When Payton dialed up that Brees lateral pass to Hill for that deep pass was proof of it, late in the game. I’m not defending the Bucs. If you don’t want to get blown out, you play defense!

    The downfall is the Head Coach doesn’t know when to pull key starters out of the game. Hence, Mike Thomas May have a lingering sprain ankle for several weeks, when he should have been on the sideline.

  2. “If you don’t want to get blown out, you okay defense.” Lol. Saints had 140 yards at the start of the 4th quarter. That’s more than playing defense. Kamara was getting tossed around by their linebackers. They played defense just fine on what amounted to a a sloppy game defined by mistakes. One team has continuity, the other doesn’t. Despite one team clearly not getting out of their own way, it was a one score game in the 4th. I do believe everyone and their mother assumed the Bucs would be kinda like this until mid point in the season

    It could also be that since there was no pre-season, Payton wanted to give the starting offense some more reps together against a real team…

  4. I’m a Saints fan but I think the late display of trying to score while the victory was well in hand was a classless move. The Saints will be lucky if that Karma doesn’t come back to bite them.
