  Saints | Michael Thomas requires surgeries     Tue Jan 19, 11:34 AM

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas (ankle) is likely to have multiple surgeries on the torn deltoid and other injured ligaments in his high ankle this offseason.

Footballguys view: Thomas worked through a high-ankle sprain for most of the seven games he played in the regular season. He came back for the playoffs because he didn't want to miss out on the (likely) final playoff run of Drew Brees. Now, Thomas has plenty of time to get back to full strength and then work with whoever the new starter in New Orleans is next season.

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas (ankle, hamstring) will be a game-day call for Week 9 versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to head coach Sean Payton.

Footballguys view: Thomas will face Carlton Davis if he does play, and Davis shut him down in Week 1 before Thomas suffered a high ankle sprain. You have to play Thomas if he's in the lineup, but this isn't a good DFS week for him. Thomas is expected to play by most, but check back on Sunday to be sure.
