New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas underwent ankle surgery in June and misses the start of the 2021 season. However, if they kept in touch with the saints during the off-season, they seemed ready to launch the campaign.
according to Jeff Duncan on Nola.comThe saint’s medical staff first examined Thomas’ injured ankle and advised him to undergo surgery. The star receiver then went to get a second opinion, and doctors recommended a conservative approach that would allow the ankle to heal with rehab.
According to Duncan, Thomas chose a conservative approach in March. This is a decision endorsed by the saints. Then, for “unknown reasons,” Thomas was “out of communication” with the franchise.
“He didn’t answer multiple calls for the next three months,” Duncan wrote. “Then, Saints trainer Bo Lowery, wide receiver coach Curtis Johnson, and head coach Sean Payton all tried to reach Thomas.
When the three professional bowlers returned to the saint in June, he did not fully recover and was forced to have ankle surgery.
Due to Thomas’ injury, Saints signed veteran receiver Chris Hogan and moved Ty Montgomery from a running back to a wide out. As a result of that move, New Orleans signed Devonta Freeman on behalf of Montgomery.
If Thomas had been in contact with the saints this summer, he might be preparing for the first week. So far, New Orleans will not have the best recipients to start the next campaign.
Thomas played injured and made 40 catches at 438 yards last season with no touchdowns in seven games. The 28-year-old has recorded more than 1,000 yards for four consecutive seasons before the 2020 season.
