Should Injury Problems Scare the Chicago Bears away?

Michael Thomas’ injury history is real and should not be taken lightly. Thomas has had some major foot issues dating back to 2020. His first surgery or treatment did not go as planned and then he had to get another surgery keeping him out for the entire 2021 season.

Thomas’ 2022 season would then be ruined by a dislocated toe that did not heal as the team anticipated. The New Orleans Saints decided to shut him down in early November — ending yet another season early. The team thought they could salvage the season and it could heal without surgery, but it did not go as planned.

Despite all the injuries, Michael Thomas is a necessary risk to take. This Chicago Bears team is yearning for wide receiver talent. Wide receiver talent in this league is widely not available or it will cost a king’s ransom. Michael Thomas looks to be available and should not be too expensive. He could be a greatly discounted value for Chicago.
