The Saints have announced that receiver Michael Thomas may be out for some time due to a knee injury. The team has placed him on injured reserve for at least four weeks. This is a setback for Thomas, who has only played 10 games over the last three seasons due to various injuries.
In response to Thomas’ absence, the Saints have signed cornerback Cameron Dantzler to the 53-man roster from their practice squad. Dantzler has played in two games for the Saints this season, primarily on special teams.
To fill in for Thomas’ spot on the roster, the Saints have also re-signed Marquez Callaway to their practice squad. Callaway spent the offseason and training camp with former head coach Sean Payton on the Broncos but was waived at the start of the regular season. He then signed with Las Vegas’ practice squad but was released from the unit in October. Callaway has played in 42 games with 17 starts from 2020-2022, catching 83 passes for 1,069 yards and seven touchdowns for the Saints. Last season, he had 16 receptions for 158 yards and a touchdown in 14 games.
