Michael Thomas appears to have released personal health information regarding the New Orleans Saints’ loss to the Vikings in the Wild Card during the NFL playoffs.
The New Orleans Saints started the playoffs in the Wild Card against the Minnesota Vikings and ended up losing in a thrilling game from a missed offensive pass interference that wasn’t reviewed.
The Vikings moved on.
During the Minnesota Vikings and San Francisco 49ers game on Sunday. Michael Thomas appeared to be loving the fact that the 49ers were putting the Vikings hopes of coming back in the dismal past.
While tweeting about the game, Thomas appears to take a shot at Minnesota Vikings receiver Stefon Diggs, who after the game against the Saints mocked the celebration ‘choppa style,’ with a tweet “Now Choppa That.”
However, Thomas also revealed something else in his historical rant.
He appeared to reveal that the superstar receiver had a broken hand in the Wild Card game against the Vikings. He stated, “I had 7 with a broken hand…” If that is true, Thomas could have been severally hindered in that game.
It is unclear whether Thomas broke it during that game or when he was going through hand issues during weeks 16 and 17. Let’s assume he hurt it either in the game or warm-ups given the integrity of training staff to release that kind of information.
Either way, the wide receiver would have been in extreme pain and even played through it.
It is undeniable though that the last week of the season was off par for the superstar receiver compared to the year. Thomas only caught 37 yards in the last game of the season against the Carolina Panthers.
That wouldn’t be the cause of the loss to the Vikings, but it definitely could have hindered the wide receiver as he was held under 100 receiving yards for only the sixth time this season. Michael Thomas is by far the best receiver in the league.
Hopefully, if this is true, Thomas takes the offseason to get it looked at and recuperate from that broken hand. That way, there will be no question going into next season who the No. 1 wide receiver in the league is.
