Ruled out for Week 4
Coach Dennis Allen said Friday that Thomas (foot) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Thomas has missed three straight practice since suffering a foot injury Week 3, and the Saints will focus on his health with the hope of having the veteran standout back in action Week 5 against the Seahawks. Quarterback Jameis Winston (back/ankle/hip) is considered doubtful, according to Allen, so it looks as though New Orleans will go with Andy Dalton under center Sunday, with Chris Olave and Jarvis Landry (ankle) acting as his top wideouts.
