Top Mike Thomas News

  • Mike Thomas: Cut by Baltimore

    Thomas (shoulder) was released by the Ravens from the active/PUP list with an injury settlement Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Thomas suffered a separated shoulder and a labrum injury at some point this offseason, which will require surgery, so Baltimore moved on Tuesday. The wide receiver will likely be forced to miss the entirety of the 2023 campaign and set his sights on a potential return in 2024.

  • Ravens' Mike Thomas: Opens camp on PUP list

    Thomas (shoulder) was placed on the active/PUP list by the Ravens on Friday.

    Thomas will open camp on the sidelines as he continues to recover from shoulder surgery, but the wide receiver is eligible to return to the practice field at any point ahead of the preseason. The Ravens' first exhibition is set for Aug. 12 against the Eagles.

  • Ravens' Mike Thomas: Will need surgery on shoulder

    Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said Wednesday that Thomas will need to undergo surgery to address a separated shoulder, Jamison Hensley of reports.

    It's unclear when Thomas suffered the injury, but he'll presumably be unavailable for the rest of Baltimore's OTAs and perhaps the start of training camp. The reserve wideout latched on with the Ravens' practice squad last December and earned a reserve/future contract in January, but he's a long shot to make the 2023 Week 1 roster, especially if he remains sidelined to begin camp.

  • Ravens' Mike Thomas: Retained by Baltimore

    The Ravens signed Thomas to a reserve/future contract Monday, Ryan Mink of the team's official site reports.

    Thomas joined Baltimore's practice squad Dec. 20 almost exactly one month after he was waived by the Bengals. Over the past three years with Cincinnati, the 28-year-old caught 20 of 42 targets for 222 yards and a touchdown in 36 regular-season games. The veteran wideout never received an elevation from the Ravens' practice squad even though starting wideouts Rashod Bateman (foot) and Devin Duvernay (foot) both finished the season on IR. Thomas will likely try to work his way onto the active roster as a potential core special-teamer heading into the 2023 campaign.

  • Mike Thomas: Joins Ravens' practice squad

    Baltimore signed Thomas to its practice squad Tuesday, Clifton Brown of the Ravens' official site reports.

    Just less than a month after being waived by Cincinnati, Thomas has found another opportunity with a division rival. With Tylan Wallace (hamstring) and Rashod Bateman (foot) both on the injured reserve list, it wouldn't be surprising to see the 28-year-old wideout Thomas be elevated as soon as Saturday's game versus Atlanta.

  • Mike Thomas: Waived by Bengals

    Thomas was waived by the Bengals on Monday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Thomas being removed from the roster may suggest that fellow wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase is close to returning from his hip injury. Cincinnati gave Thomas opportunities on the outside while Chase and Tee Higgins missed time due to injuries this season, but the 28-year-old wide receiver failed to capitalize, catching just two of 10 targets for 38 yards.

  • Bengals' Mike Thomas: No targets in Week 9

    Thomas didn't have any targets in the Bengals' win over the Panthers, despite playing 22 offensive snaps.

    It didn't help Thomas that the Bengals were running the ball so well, but it also appears as if Trent Taylor and even practice squad receiver Trenton Irwin have eclipsed Thomas. So much for the notion that he would step up with Ja'Marr Chase (hip) out.

  • Bengals' Mike Thomas: Comes up empty Week 9

    Thomas failed to bring in his lone target while playing 24 of the Bengals' 53 snaps on offense in Monday's 32-13 loss to the Browns.

    Though he was one of several pass catchers who moved into a larger role with Ja'Marr Chase (hip) sidelined for the contest, Thomas nor any of the Bengals' other pass-catching options came through with notable receiving production on a night the Browns dominated the time of possession. A more favorable matchup could await the Bengals in Week 9 against the 2-6 Panthers, but Thomas is still likely to find himself behind all of Tee Higgins, Tyler Boyd and Hayden Hurst in the team's pass-catching hierarchy.

  • Bengals' Mike Thomas: Plays four offensive snaps in win

    Thomas played on just four offensive snaps and failed to see a single target in Sunday's 30-26 win over the Saints.

    Thomas was a complete nonfactor in the Bengals' offense with fellow wideout Tee Higgins back in the mix Sunday. Barring injuries to the team's pass catchers, the 28-year-old receiver will find it hard to have much of an impact with limited opportunities on offense. Thomas remains far off the fantasy radar heading into a Week 7 matchup with the Falcons.

  • Bengals' Mike Thomas: Forced into extra duty

    Thomas played 41 offensive snaps in Sunday night's loss to the Ravens, catching one pass on three targets for 33 yards.

    Thomas saw extra action with Tee Higgins out most of the game due to an ankle injury. The target share, even with Higgins out, illustrates the low likelihood Thomas will have a big role in the offense at any point.

  • Bengals' Mike Thomas: Thrust into duty Week 1

    Thomas totaled one catch for five yards on five targets while playing 64 snaps on offense Sunday in the Bengals' 23-20 overtime loss to the Steelers.

    Thomas was on the field much more than expected Week 1, a result of fellow wideout Tee Higgins leaving early with a concussion. Among his five targets was a drop in the end zone on the play preceding Ja'Marr Chase's game-tying touchdown in the waning seconds of regulation. If Higgins has to miss the Bengals' Week 2 game in Dallas, Thomas will take on the third receiver role, given Cincinnati's lack of appealing alternatives.

  • Mike Thomas: Released by Cincy

    The Bengals released Thomas on Tuesday.

    Thomas appeared in 26 games across the past two seasons with Cincinnati, totaling 18 receptions for 184 yards and one score, so his release comes as a surprise. He's only finished with over 100 receiving yards once in his six-year career, but he has extensive special-teams experience, which may be intriguing for some teams around the league.

  • Bengals' Mike Thomas: Remains locked into depth role

    Thomas caught two of three targets for 18 yards in Saturday's 16-7 preseason win over the Rams.

    Thomas' first catch was a 12-yarder on the Bengals' first offensive play of the game. His early usage is an encouraging sign for Thomas' standing in Cincinnati's wide receiver pecking order, as he appears to be the team's top option behind the starting trio of Ja'Marr Chase, Tee Higgins (shoulder) and Tyler Boyd. Thomas is unlikely to push any of those three for playing time, but he also appears to be a safe bet to make the 53-man roster in a reserve role.
