Saints starting receivers Thomas, Sanders miss practice

METAIRIE, La. (AP) Two of the Saints' starting receivers, two-time All-Pro Michael Thomas and veteran Emmanuel Sanders, missed practice on Thursday, raising questions about who would replace their production in New Orleans' passing attack.

Thomas limped off the field late in Sunday's victory over Tampa Bay, and the team said Thursday he had an ankle injury.

Coach Sean Payton declined to address Thomas' prognosis with reporters, maintaining his usual policy of declining to disseminate any details beyond what clubs are required to post on injury reports.
