New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas (hamstring) active vs. Falcons

New Orleans Saints star wideout Michael Thomas, listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Atlanta because of a hamstring injury, is active.

Falcons rookie wide receiver Drake London, listed as questionable with a knee injury, also is active.

Thomas missed much of 2020 and all of last season because of complications related to left ankle surgery. He practiced for the first time in more than a year when camp opened in late July but was sidelined about three weeks later with the hamstring injury.

"I'm itching very much [to play]. I think it's kind of obvious," Thomas said Wednesday. "But I don't want to get too excited. It's still a couple days."

The 29-year-old Thomas had 149 receptions for 1,725 yards and nine touchdowns in 2019, his last healthy season.
