New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas was surprisingly absent from the team’s first day of mandatory minicamp on Tuesday (June 12).

Coach Sean Payton said Thomas was excused from the practice session, but didn’t elaborate on the reason the receiver wasn’t with the team. Thomas’ absence is especially surprising because he participated in the optional organized team activities the previous three weeks.

In addition to Thomas, defensive end Cameron Jordan was not seen during the two-hour practice, but he was welcoming a baby on Tuesday morning, which explains his absence. Fellow defensive end Trey Hendrickson was also gone, but he’s been dealing with an undisclosed injury the past couple weeks.

Several other players were at practice, but either limited or simply spectating due to injuries. That group included wide receivers Brandon Coleman, Josh Huff and Tre’Quan Smith; tight ends Deon Yelder and Garrett Griffin; offensive linemen Andrus Peat and Rick Leonard; and running back Daniel Lasco.

Wide receiver Austin Carr also left practice with an apparent injury.

The Saints continue minicamp on Wednesday at 11 a.m.
