Just absolutely gut-wrenching news for the New Orleans Saints.

Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports that Saints WR Michael Thomas‘ high-ankle injury is worse than originally believed, and he’s now expected to miss “several” weeks.

Pelissero had previously mentioned that this was something Thomas believed he could play through.

Thomas sustained the injury in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s win over the Buccaneers.

In that game, Thomas caught three passes for 17 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
