New Orleans Saints running back Pierre Thomas will not play today against the Cincinnati Bengals, Kara Henderson of the NFL Network reports.
The Saints’ leader in rushing yards and touchdowns in 2009, Thomas’ ankle injury has limited him to just 147 yards and 1 touchdown in 2+ games this season.
Thomas had been listed as “questionable”, but will join Ladell Betts (knee) on the team’s inactive list today. Thomas is expected to return in Week 14 against the St. Louis Rams.
With Thomas and Betts out, the Saints’ rushing load will be carried by Chris Ivory, Julius Jones, and Reggie Bush.
