The Las Vegas Raiders made a huge breakthrough. According to NFL Network reports, New Orleans Saints star receiver Michael Thomas was absent for weeks with an ankle injury and he will miss out on Monday night in Las Vegas. Match.
Sources told me and @RapSheet that #Saint Superstar WR Michael Thomas (Michael Michael Thomas) had a high ankle injury worse than originally thought, and he is now expected to be absent for weeks.
Thomas is as strong as them, and will definitely defy this timetable. But this will be a battle.

After Thomas was injured in Sunday’s victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Saints thought he could fight the Raiders, but the injury was more serious than originally thought.
For Raiders with young middle schools, this is a major game plan change. Thomas is a terrible matchup for the Raiders. He had 149 catches and 1,725 passes last season. The Saints’ offensive ability is still high, but they will definitely miss Thomas.
According to reports, this week the Raiders received good news about central defender Nick Kvatkowski (pec) and right tackle Trent Brown (Mavericks) injured, and the Saints just got some terrible Injury news.
Let’s see how it affects the results on Monday night.
