Things just keep getting worse for New Orleans Saints' star wide receiver Michael Thomas. Though it looked like he was set to return from a high-ankle sprain and suspension in Week 7, the team has already ruled him out due to a hamstring injury.

It appears that injury could be more serious than the team initially believed, as Thomas' status for Week 8 reportedly appears to be in jeopardy as well.

Not having Thomas would be a big loss, as New Orleans takes on the 5-1 Chicago Bears. Plus, Emmanuel Sanders is currently on the COVID-reserve list, so he's no guarantee to be available in Week 8 either.

If both of the Saints' top wideouts can't go, Drew Brees will likely be working with Jared Cook, Alvin Kamara and No. 3 WR Tre'Quan Smith as his top targets.

Thomas' status will be crucial for fans to monitor throughout the week.
