There was certainly a glimmer of hope for New Orleans Saints fans because Michael had limited participation on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday practice. Hello, everyone. Dr Matt Provencher here, I'm the former head team physician for the New England Patriots, and this week I'm gonna talk about some of the injuries from Week three on when when you expect these guys to get back on the field. So first up Chase Young defensive end from the Washington football team, he goes down with a groin strain. But the good news is he is able to walk off under his own power. We think this is a mild or moderate type of groin strain, and from our data, we can expect Chase to miss anywhere from 1 to 3 games. When Chase comes back because he's a defensive end, he's gonna have to have that explosive power and the ability to cut and get around guards. So he may have a slight decline in his overall performance for the first two games back. We wish chase a speedy recovery and hope he gets back on the field soon. Next, let's turn our attention to Tyreek Hill, who is coming off an incredible game in Week three. Tyreke was listed as full participant in practice Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Although it appeared he had an injury to his lower leg or potentially his heel, he still was a full participant. I think we can expect Tyreke to play this weekend in Kansas City against the New England Patriots. So now let's switch to the New Orleans Saints and star wide out Michael Thomas. I know you say it's fans hard waiting to get Michael back into your lineup is certainly extremely valuable member of the organization. Michael had a high ankle sprain, which means the ligaments above the ankle joint are strained or injured from our data and a player in his position with his credentials. Things is, on average, a miss of approximately 2.6 games, although there was certainly a glimmer of hope for you New Orleans Saints fans because Michael had limited participation on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday practice. Unfortunately, I don't see him playing this weekend, although we may see him back Week five. He may still not be his same old self as we usually see for at least 1 to 2 games back after a high ankle sprain, a 10 thio 18% decrease in overall performance, which for him would be catches and for all yards. We certainly wish Michael a speedy recovery and wishing to get back on the field real soon. That's it for this week's recap.
