The New Orleans Saints kick off their season today in Atlanta against the Falcons. Luckily for them, they’ll have one of their best players back from injury. Wide receiver Michael Thomas is officially active.

According to reports, Thomas looked great in practice all week long. The Saints may limit his reps to a degree to ease him back into game action, but he seems to be healthy. That is some great news for the Saints.

Thomas is one of the top receivers in the NFL when healthy. He has put up historic production before. There’s no reason to believe he cannot do that once again if he stays on the field.

All of their offensive weapons look to be healthy as the season begins. QB Jameis Winston has a plethora of talent around him for pass-catchers. The upgrades from last season are clear. If they can stay healthy, the WR room looks to be one of the best in the league.

Get ready, Saints fans. Michael Thomas is officially back.
