This sucks. New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas announced Wednesday that he will not be back for the remainder of the 2021 season after suffering a setback in his recovery from offseason ankle surgery. He won’t be able to play again this year.

It’s a huge hit to the Saints passing game, which has ranked second-to-last in the NFL without Thomas and with Jameis Winston at the helm. Now they’re both out of the picture. We’ll have to see how far Alvin Kamara, Trevor Siemian, Taysom Hill, and their no-name supporting cast can take the team after the Saints failed to make any moves at the NFL trade deadline.
