Pierre Thomas NOS -RBruled out for Week 17
Saints RB Pierre Thomas (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Panthers. That knee has been bothering him for a couple weeks, so he'll take a seat for a meaningless finale. PT's absence should get Chris Ivory involved again. He'll operate in a committee with Mark Ingram and Darren Sproles.
Pierre Thomas NOS -RBactive
Saints RB Pierre Thomas (knee) is active for today's game against the Cowboys. He'll continue to split backfield duties with RBs Mark Ingram and Darren Sproles.
Pierre Thomas NOS -RBprobable for Week 16
Saints RB Pierre Thomas (knee) popped up on the injury report on Thursday. But he put in a couple limited practices and is listed as probable for this weekend's game against the Cowboys. The knee shouldn't be an issue, but PT is still just a RB3 or flex option in fantasy. He's averaging 68 total yards without a TD over his last 3 games.
Pierre Thomas NOS -RBadded to injury report with knee
Saints RB Pierre Thomas was added to the injury report on Thursday as limited with a knee. It's unclear if he tweaked the knee yesterday and had his reps scaled back today, or if he was injured today and unable to finish practice. Check back tomorrow for an update.
Pierre Thomas NOS -RBpasses physical
Saints RB Pierre Thomas passed his physical and was able to run during camp today. We haven't received many updates on his recovery from January ankle surgery, but it sounds like he's at least close to 100%. Barring a setback, he'll be ready for Week 1. His exact role in New Orleans' backfield remains unclear.
Pierre Thomas NOS -RBwon't be 100% for start of camp
According to the Sporting News, Saints RB Pierre Thomas is unlikely to be back at 100% when training camp opens. He's rehabbing from January ankle surgery. Although P.T. should be fine for Week 1, this might be just the leg up rookie RB Mark Ingram needs to emerge from camp as New Orleans' lead back.
Pierre Thomas NOS -RBsheds his walking boot
Saints RB Pierre Thomas revealed on his Twitter feed that he's out of his walking boot after undergoing ankle surgery back in January. He remains on track to be back to 100% for training camp.
Pierre Thomas NOS -RBshould be ready for training camp
Saints RB Pierre Thomas' ankle injury is expected to keep him sidelined until July, but GM Mickey Loomis fully expects PT to be ready for training camp. With the lockout in effect, there may not be any OTAs anyways, so Thomas may not be missing anything. As long as his rehab goes as planned, Thomas should be New Orleans' starting RB come Week 1.
Pierre Thomas NOS -RBunlikely to be ready for OTAs
A pesky ankle injury kept Saints RB Pierre Thomas out for 10 games this past season. And HC Sean Payton recently revealed that the surgery Thomas underwent back in January was "extensive." Payton believes the rehab process will go into the summer and prevent Thomas from participating in OTAs. It sounds like he'll be ready for training camp though, and the new 4-year deal he just signed would seem to back up that theory. We'll continue to update Thomas' recovery throughout the offseason.
Pierre Thomas NOS -RBgets 4-year deal from Saints
The Saints have signed RB Pierre Thomas to a new 4-year, $12 million contract. It's a cheap price to pay for a guy who was ultra-effective in 2008 and 2009. But P.T. struggled through injuries in 2010, which undoubtedly hurt his market value. He'll return to New Orleans as the favorite for lead back duties, although RB Chris Ivory isn't going away and will likely steal short-yardage work. There's also a good chance that RB Reggie Bush is back in the Big Easy next year.
Pierre Thomas NOS -RBhas surgery
According to Saints beat writer Jeff Duncan, RB Pierre Thomas recently underwent successful surgery on his ankle. The fragile Thomas’ future in New Orleans is in doubt, as he enters next season without a contract. He'd likely be viewed as part of a 1-2 backfield punch if he hit the open market.
Pierre Thomas NOS -RBplaced on IR
The Saints have placed RB Pierre Thomas (ankle) on IR. The injury he suffered in Week 3 turned 2010 into a lost season for him. He'll hit the market this winter as an unrestricted free-agent. Meanwhile, RBs Reggie Bush and Julius Jones will be forced to carry the load in New Orleans' backfield in the playoffs.
Pierre Thomas NOS -RBinactive
Saints RB Pierre Thomas (ankle) is inactive for today's game against the Bucs after suffering a setback in practice earlier this week. RB Chris Ivory will start and is a solid RB2 option.
Pierre Thomas NOS -RBre-injures ankle
Saints RB Pierre Thomas aggravated his sprained ankle in Friday's practice and is now listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bucs. We'll know PT's official status around noon ET on Sunday, but he'll be a risky fantasy play even if he's active. If Thomas ends up sitting out, RB Chris Ivory will be a rock-solid RB2 option.
Pierre Thomas NOS -RBactive
As expected, Saints RB Pierre Thomas (ankle) is active for today's game against the Rams. His role is expected to be minimal, with RB Chris Ivory continuing to serve as the lead back.
Pierre Thomas NOS -RBready to return
Saints RB Pierre Thomas (ankle) put in a full week of practice and will play against the Rams on Sunday. It'll be his first appearance since Week 3. Beat writer Mike Triplett confirms that "Thomas likely won't be a big part of the plan" on offense. RB Chris Ivory is still expected to be New Orleans' lead back.
