The Saints are placing wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders on the NFL's reserve-COVID-19 list. He will be out Sunday and the Black & Gold could be down another WR in Michael Thomas. While Can't Guard Mike was expected to be back this week, not so fast.

Thomas was limited in practice on Wednesday with an ankle and hamstring injury.
The hamstring is new; the ankle issue happened in the season opener. All players game statues will be revealed later today in the final injury report.

If both receivers are out against Carolina, Tre’Quan Smith and undrafted rookie Marquez Callaway could be atop the depth chart for Sunday's noon kickoff in the Mercedes Benz Superdome.
