News you need to know
From Mark Wimer's Monday injury report (Mon Nov 17): Thomas was listed as out on Friday after missing practices last week due to his injured rib and shoulder. He was inactive on Sunday.
General News (Sat Nov 22): partially participated in Saturday's practice but is still expected to play this week.
General News (Fri Nov 21): partially participated in Friday's practice.
General News (Thu Nov 20): partially participated in Thursday's practice. Thomas has missed the last four games, but he said there's a chance that he plays in Week 12.
Week 12: vs Baltimore Ravens
Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Mark Ingram continues to play well in the featured back role, with almost 100 yards combined last week (23/67/0 rushing with 7/30/0 receiving) and 79/289/2 rushing with 11/59/0 receiving to his credit over the past three games (while Khiry Robinson and Pierre Thomas have been sidelined). Travaris Cadet has chipped in 5/10/0 rushing and 10/78/0 receiving in Thomas' stead, but Ingram is the featured back for the Saints right now. Stay tuned to Footballguys.com's Players in the News this week to see if Robinson or Thomas is able to get back in the mix for Week 12 - a return by either guy would likely erode some of Ingram's touches away from him. The Ravens' rush D is now ranked fifth in the NFL averaging 84.5 yards given up per game, with six rushing scores surrendered to date. Tennessee managed 22/67/0 rushing at M and T Bank Stadium two weeks ago, while the Steelers posted 25/55/0 rushing vs. Baltimore two games ago. Ingram is on a tear, but the Ravens are no pushover in this phase of the game - this looks like a tough matchup for the Saints' running backs.
Recent Stats and Projections
Latest NewsSaints | Pierre Thomas probable (Sat Nov 22, 02:54 PM) - New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas (rib, shoulder) was limited in practice Saturday, Nov. 22, and is probable for Monday night's tilt with the Baltimore Ravens. Our View: After missing about a month, Thomas is back in action. We like him as a low-end RB3/flex option. The Saints offense hasn't looked like what most expect recently, so getting Thomas back should certainly help. Mark Ingram is still the starter, and his workload as a runner makes him a low-end RB1.

Our View: Thomas could see some more work this week with other running backs banged up, but is still behind Mark Ingram, who is an RB2 this week. Thomas is no better than an RB4 if he plays on Monday night.
