Saints Thursday Injury Report Against Las Vegas on Monday
The New Orleans Saints don't go into week two with a ton of injuries but they've got two key ones that could impact them moving forward.
They face the Las Vegas Raiders on Monday Night Football this week on the road. They'll most likely do it without their All-Pro wide receiver Michael Thomas who is doubtful after sustaining a high ankle sprain late in last weekend's victory over the Bucs.
The Raiders are coming off a high-scoring contest against the Carolina Panthers in which they came out on top 34-30 and it was a big game from running back Josh Jacobs.
This week, the Saints did have one surprise on the injury report but the appearance on the report was reportedly not injury related for wide-out Emmanuel Sanders.
Here's how the report shook out for both the Saints and the Raiders:

It seems like early on in the season a lot of veteran guys are getting a rest day from practice as you saw Emmanuel Sanders is on that for the Saints as well as many for the Raiders.
The Raiders will open up their new stadium this Monday in Aliegant Stadium but without any fans unfortunately or maybe fortunately for the visiting Saints.
