Thomas has been dealing with an ankle injury, and was limited in practice on Friday. The former Ohio State wide out figures to be a large part of the potent Saints offensive attack.
Brandon Coleman and undrafted rookie free agent Tommylee Lewis are the team's No. 4 and 5 receivers, and both could be activated today to give Drew Brees an arsenal of weapons. So, if you play fantasy football, then you might want to be cautious of starting Thomas.
A full list of team inactives should be out at least an hour prior to kickoff, and we're keeping a close watch on left tackle Terron Armstead's status, as he's listed as questionable with a quad/knee injury. That may be the more important injury concern for today.
