Michael Thomas was considered by many to be the best receiver in the NFL coming into the season, but he hasn't seen the field since Week 1, when he was injured. Since then he has been suspended by the team for one game and sustained another injury in practice.

Well, as the team prepares for arguably its biggest game of the year, a Sunday Night Football matchup against the division rival Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Thomas looks like he's finally going to be back on the field.

Getting Thomas back will be a huge boon to the Saints offense that has failed to find a consistent pass-catcher this season aside from running back Alvin Kamara, who currently leads the team in receptions and targets through the air.

We don't know how long it will take Thomas to get back into the swing of things, but anytime you get arguably the league's best receiver suiting up again, it's going to be a big help.
