One day ahead of their biggest game of the season, the New Orleans Saints added their star wideout to the injury report.
Second-year receiver Michael Thomas is questionable to play against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday after being added to the report Saturday with a hamstring injury.
Aside from Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara, Thomas is New Orleans' most indispensable offensive weapon. Thomas is only the second receiver to start his career with back-to-back seasons of 90-plus receptions and 1,000-plus yards (Odell Beckham). He's also a Falcons killer. Thomas has averged at least seven receptions, 70 receiving yards and a TD in three career games against Atalnta.
Here are the other injuries worth monitoring Saturday:
- Packers right tackle Jason Spriggs (knee) was carted off early in the first quarter against the Minnesota Vikings and ruled out by the team shortly thereafter. Receiver Jordy Nelson (shoulder) and tight end Richard Rodgers (shoulder) were ruled out during the third quarter. Running back Aaron Jones (knee) did not return, either.
- The Seattle Seahawks activated cornerback DeShawn Shead off of the physically unable to perform list.
