Sept. 30 (UPI) -- New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas will not play in Week 4 due to a toe injury, coach Dennis Allen told reporters Friday. Allen also said quarterback Jameis Winston is doubtful to face the Minnesota Vikings.

The Saints are scheduled to play the Vikings on Sunday in London. Thomas started each of the Saints' first three games this season after missing the 2021 season with an ankle injury.

Fellow Saints wide receiver Jarvis Landry also sustained an ankle injury Sunday and did not practice Wednesday. He was limited Thursday and Friday and is questionable for Sunday.
