New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas revealed on Twitter that he played with a broken hand in his team's 26-20 overtime loss to the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Wild Card Round last Sunday.
Thomas made the remarks in the midst of a tweet series that began with one apparently in response to the Vikings struggling en route to a 27-10 defeat to the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Divisional Round.
Numerous Twitter users responded by noting that Thomas and the Saints were already out of the playoffs, which led to Thomas' admission.
Thomas caught seven passes for 70 yards in the OT loss. He set an NFL record with 149 receptions in the regular season.
His remarks continued as the Vikings' game neared its end.
The final one was in reference to quarterback Kirk Cousins and his "You like that?" remark. Cousins and the Vikings offense only gained 147 scrimmage yards, with the signal-caller going 21-of-29 for 172 yards, one touchdown and one interception.
Ninety of the passing yards came on two game-closing drives, and he was sacked six times.
The 49ers will host the winner of the Seattle Seahawks at Green Bay Packers NFC Divisional Round game in the NFC Championship January 19.
