Michael Thomas missed Monday's game after altercation with teammate

NEW ORLEANS, Lou. (WLOX) - Saints star receiver Michael Thomas has been out with an ankle injury since week one, but could’ve made a return to the field in Monday Night’s matchup with the Chargers had it not been for a fight with a teammate.

Multiple outlets said Thomas was in an altercation with safety CJ Gardner-Johnson. Fox 8 Sports analyst Jeff Duncan reported Tuesday that Thomas talked back to coaches, including Sean Payton, after the confrontation.
