by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Saints running back Pierre Thomas exited Sunday's game against the Falcons in the first half with an injury to the ribs.

Thomas sustained the injury in the second quarter and was ruled questionable to return to the game, per the team's official website. He caught two of three targets for 24 yards before departing.

Saints RB Pierre Thomas dominates in screen game
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Saints running back Pierre Thomas was lethal catching screen passes Monday night in his hometown of Chicago, turning five grabs into a season-high 83 receiving yards. Thomas added 11 yards on two carries.

On New Orleans' second drive, Thomas hauled in a pass in the flat and ripped off 39 yards. Thomas secured each of his targets and has caught five or more passes four times this season.

He'll play the Falcons on Sunday.

Saints RBs Ingram, Thomas held down in Sunday loss
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

A lopsided score precluded the Saints backfield from receiving much of an opportunity Sunday against Carolina to run the ball.

The group was led by Mark Ingram with 10 carries for 43 yards and Pierre Thomas, who had just one run in the first half and finished with five for 38 yards. The two combined for six catches for just 27 yards.

The pair will get another chance at Chicago next Monday night.

Saints backfield split raises some concerns
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Saints weren't able to rely on the rushing game as much as they might have preferred in Week 12, as their running backs combined for just 16 carries in a Monday night loss to the Ravens.

Mark Ingram, who had averaged 26 carries in the team's previous four games, had just 11 Monday, en route to a disappointing 27-yard showing. More alarmingly, Ingram played just 34 percent of the team's snaps in the loss, as Pierre Thomas' return cut into his playing time drastically. Thomas had just five carries, but hauled in six passes while playing 53 percent of the team's offensive snaps, as they fought their way back from a late deficit.

The Saints were within 10 points of the Ravens for much of the game, until a late touchdown put the Ravens up 14 with three minutes left. However, the Saints were clearly focused on throwing the ball for much of the game, which meant Thomas was the more useful option. That has to be concerning for Ingram's owners, who have gotten used to a healthy dose of carries.

If the Saints are up, they will likely use Ingram plenty, as he is clearly the best pure runner on the team. However, Thomas is going to get work when they want to put the ball in the air, and that might happen often on a team that ranks 25th in scoring defense. Both Thomas and Ingram will have their uses down the stretch, however, and could be low-end starting Fantasy options.
