The New Orleans Saints are welcoming new faces like Chris Olave and Tyrann Mathieu and healthy veterans like Jameis Winston back to the field this week for organized team activities. But one vital player is still missing.

Star receiver Michael Thomas, who sat out the entirety of the 2021 season with ankle injuries, is still unable to participate in practice, Jeremy Bergman of reports.

"I think he's doing well in his rehab. He's not ready yet," Saints head coach Dennis Allen told reporters Thursday. "But he's here, he's rehabbing, he's getting himself better and we're certainly anxious to get him out there."

Asked if Thomas would be ready for training camp in July, Allen said it was "certainly our plan," but he didn't commit to Thomas' availability this summer.

"If I had a crystal ball and could tell you all these things, I'd probably be making a lot more money and doing something different," the first-year Saints head coach joked. "But yeah, our hope is that he's gonna be ready to for training camp. So that's what we're pushing for."
