Thomas sat out Week 12 with his sprained left ankle. His status can't be taken for granted for Week 13, but he's trending in the right direction. "I have had better days, and I have had worse days," Thomas said Monday. "You hope you just wake up one day and it feels good again, but that didn't happen last week. But it has improved." Jacob Tamme was held to just one catch filling in for Thomas last week.
