Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas is set to undergo toe surgery, a procedure that is expected to end his season.
The conversation surrounding the end of his year has upset one teammate on his team.
Speaking to the media, Saints running back Alvin Kamara was asked about the criticism Thomas has received for his recent injury history.
“For people to be talking s-t, it irks my soul to see that,” Kamara said.
Thomas dislocated his toe in Week 3 against the Carolina Panthers and has not returned to the field. This is a huge blow for Thomas, who did not play for nearly two years because of a high ankle sprain suffered in Week 1 of the 2020 season.
Thomas called his summer 2022 return to the field “a blessing.” He seemed to prove that when he played for the first time in 21 months, scoring two touchdowns in a victory over the Atlanta Falcons in Week 1.
Thomas recorded 16 receptions for 171 yards and three touchdowns in three games this season.
That will end his season right there.
Alvin Kamara has had injury problems himself. he hasn’t played a full season since his rookie year. So far in 2022, he has missed two games.
Alvin Kamara headlines the Saints’ ground game. He has 95 carries for 413 yards and one touchdown.
