According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Thomas is likely to have surgeries on both the torn deltoid and other injured ligaments in his high ankle this offseason. “Michael Thomas often wouldn’t practice all week, yet would still play in games, at much less than 100%, and with pain medication,” per Schefter. “The coaches told him even as injured as he was, they were much better off with him than without him. But now will need surgery.” Thomas was limited to seven games in 2020 due to a high-ankle sprain. The 27-year-old WR hauled in 40 receptions for 438 yards and zero touchdowns. Thomas is expected to be ready by training camp and currently eighth among all wideouts in the latest expert consensus draft rankings.
