Saints RB Pierre Thomas (ankle out) has been ruled out for week 6. Ladell Betts and Chris Ivory will again carry the load, with newly signed Julius Jones possibly receiving a few carries. Ladell Betts is the best option because of his pass catching skills, but none are good fantasy plays. Pierre Thomas did reveal today that the original timetable on the injury was 4-6 weeks. This would have been nice to know three weeks ago. Thomas is hoping to be able to run outside of the pool next week. Not an encouraging sign.
