NEW ORLEANS, La. – It looks like the Saints could be without both Michael Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders when they host the Carolina Panthers Sunday.

Multiple sources are reporting that Sanders was placed on the NFL’s COVID-19 list.

Head Coach Sean Payton on Friday says that Sanders was not feeling well yesterday and was sent to the doctor.

There, he tested positive for COVID-19.

Payton says Sanders contracted the virus at home.
