The New Orleans Saints will be without top running back Pierre Thomas for a second straight game. Thomas hasP. Thomas (US Presswire) not practiced since injuring his ankle against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 3.

According to James Varney of the Times-Picayune, Thomas would try to play if this were a playoff game. But it’s Week 5, and the fourth-year pro has the rest of the season to consider. Plus, Thomas is yet to even run full speed on the ankle (he’s mainly been doing underwater exercises).

The Saints, of course, are already without No. 2 running back (and No. 1 mismatch creator) Reggie Bush. This means Ladell Betts and undrafted rookie Chris Ivory will share the rushing load against the Cardinals. This formula was efficient against the Panthers last week. Ivory rushed for 67 yards on 12 carries; Betts rushed for 47 yards on 13 carries.

Perhaps influencing the Saints’ decision to wait on Thomas is the fact that the Cardinals are currently giving up 154.8 yards per game on the ground, third worst in the NFL.

Pierre Thomas out for Week 5

Guess Mickey should have listened to Drew Brees and taken a chance on LT.  He seems to be doing fine with the Jets while we're stuck with a bunch of undrafted nobodies.
