Michael Thomas set to return to action in NFL's Week 9
Former Ohio State star Michael Thomas is active for the Saints’ game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday Night Football.
This will be Thomas’ first game action since Week 1 of the season.

Thomas has missed game this season for a variety of reasons. He’s battled injuries, yes, but he was also reportedly involved in a fight with a teammate last month.
The former Buckeye was at the center of several trade rumors last week, but the Saints couldn’t find a deal for him.
If Thomas is right, he’s arguably the best receiver in the NFL. Last season, he led the league with 149 catches and 1,725 yards. He also scored nine touchdowns for the third time in his four seasons.
The Saints and Bucs kick off at 8:20 p.m. ET on NBC.
