Fantastic impact: Thomas has participated in all parts of Saints training except for full team drills last week, so he continues to improve now that he is participating in those full team drills. After a few lost seasons, Thomas is looking to bounce back this season. The advantage is undeniable if he is in perfect health.

Byron Pringle out of practice due to quad injury
Byron Pringle (quadruple) was sidelined in Bears practice on Saturday and doesn’t yet have a schedule to return.
Fantastic impact: Bears head coach Matt Eberflus said Saturday that Pringle will be out for “a while.” On the positive side, Eberflus also said he doesn’t think the injury will persist through the regular season. Pringle was signed as a free agent in March after spending the first three years of his career in Kansas City. He is expected to be the Bears’ primary slot receiver.

Fantastic impact: Marshall was on the stationary bike throughout practice, but Matt Rhule said it “should be too long” until Marshall was back on the court. He’s had a great camp so far as he looks to build on an inconsistent rookie season. For now, that doesn’t sound like anything serious, but obviously fantasy managers will want to monitor reports from training camp to make sure Marshall returns to practice next week.

Fantastic impact: Hamler is recovering from surgery to repair a torn ACL last year, and his progress has been steady as he was taken off the PUP list on Monday. Normally he wouldn’t be of much fantasy interest given the Broncos’ receiving corps and his injury, but with Tim Patrick now lost for the season, Hamler should see an increase in snaps as long as he’s in good shape. health. Hackett’s words are encouraging, but fantasy managers need to be careful because the Broncos won’t want to risk Hamler’s long-term health trying to push him to be ready for Week 1. And even if he’s ready , it’s unlikely he’ll see a full set of snaps right away. Still, it’s good news for managers who have drafted or are considering drafting offshore.
