Michael Thomas ruled out due to altercation
Prior to the game, Saints wideout Michael Thomas was ruled out and it actually had nothing to do with his high ankle sprain.
The team announced the decision following an altercation between Thomas and C.J. Gardner Johnson, in which Thomas reportedly punched the second year defensive back.
Thomas has been listed as questionable all week and had been practicing on a limited basis every day for two straight weeks.
Thomas hasn’t seen the field since injuring his ankle in a week one game in which he only had three catches after setting the all-time single season record for receptions last year with 149.
