Report: Michael Thomas played through torn ligaments, offseason surgery likely

It was clear to everyone watching that Michael Thomas wasn’t able to play at full strength, but ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Saints receiver was fighting through even more adversity than was seen on the surface. Per Schefter’s report, Thomas tore the deltoid ligament in his ankle and injured several others back in Week 1 and often wasn’t able to practice. He still suited up for nine games this year, including the playoffs, catching 45 of 66 targets for just 511 receiving yards and one touchdown catch, all career lows. Schefter adds that when Thomas did join his teammates for games, he often required medication to help fight through the pain. If Thomas does go under the knife and spend his offseason healing up, there’s a good chance he’ll return to New Orleans for training camp to work with a new quarterback
