Saints head coach Dennis Allen noted that wide receiver Michael Thomas could miss time with a knee injury. We now know that this will take at least four weeks.
Thomas was placed on injured reserve, New Orleans announced Tuesday.
It’s a tough break for Thomas, who had only played 10 games over the past three seasons due to injury. In 2023, Thomas has 39 catches for 448 yards with one touchdown.
The Saints signed cornerback Cameron Dantzler to the club’s 53-man practice squad. He appeared in two games for the Saints this season, playing nine snaps on special teams.
Additionally, New Orleans brought Marquez Callaway back to the practice squad. Callaway spent the offseason and training camp with former Saints head coach Sean Payton on the Broncos, but was waived early in the regular season. He signed with Las Vegas’ practice squad, but was released from the unit in October.
In 42 games with 17 starts from 2020-22, Callaway caught 83 passes for 1,069 yards with seven touchdowns for the Saints. Last season, he had 16 receptions for 158 yards with one touchdown in 14 games.
