As it turns out, Michael Thomas appearing at practice wasn’t a promising sign.

The Saints just released their final injury report for Sunday’s game against the Lions, and their star wide receiver was among six players ruled out.

Thomas had practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, but apparently wasn’t sufficiently recovered from his high ankle injury to return.

The Saints also ruled out five other starters: Cornerbacks Marshon Lattimore and Janoris Jenkins, tight end Jared Cook (groin), defensive end Marcus Davenport (elbow/toe), and guard Andrus Peat (ankle).

  1. Saints have a lot of quality players missing. Lions are not a good team but theyre better than the NFL bottom feeders like the Jets. This is anyone’s game

  2. If Brees is shaking the rust off it would be prime time for Emmanuel Sanders to prove his words and rookie tight end Troutman to show he was a good draft choice. Maybe Taysom Hill could be used more in a reciever position or if at qb throw some deep passes instead of running.
