Suspended by the New Orleans Saints, wide receiver Michael Thomas was reportedly penalized for exchanging bad words with his instructors.
According to The Athletic website, the 27-year-old was indeed involved in a fight with a teammate during training, Chauncey Gardner-Johnson. However, according to this source, he responded to comments from the coaches present, which caused him to miss Monday’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers. In addition, Thomas hurled insults at the club’s trainers who he said did not sufficiently protect his ankle. Finally, he accused a staff member of illegally accessing his emails.
The athlete concerned had missed the three duels preceding his suspension due to an ankle injury. As for the sequel, Saints driver Sean Payton has not guaranteed anything and the player’s absence could be prolonged.
“I’ll keep you posted,” he told the media. We will discuss this and let you know at the appropriate time. ”
Thomas only played his first game of the season and had 17 yards on three receptions.
