The New Orleans Saints look like they will have a difficult time on offense Sunday morning.
Michael Thomas’s game status was in doubt all week after injuring his hamstring in practice, but then Emmanuel Sanders was added to the Reserve/Covid list late Friday afternoon. Now, both of the Saints star receivers will miss Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers, with Sanders also scheduled to miss next week’s game against the Chicago Bears as well.
This couldn’t come at a worse time as the Saints are set to host their former teammate turned rival, Teddy Bridgewater, in an NFC South showdown, with kickoff at 11am CST Sunday.
Of note, there will also be approximately 3,000 fans in attendance for this game as the Saints slowly re-open the Superdome for the Who Dat Nation.
