Saints RB Pierre Thomas (ankle questionable) took limit...

Saints RB Pierre Thomas (ankle questionable) took limited reps Friday. It was initially being reported that Thomas missed Friday completely, but that was not correct. HC Sean Peyton noted that Thomas is progressing quickly, but is a game-time decision in a great matchup with the Panthers. Ladell Betts has been getting the majority of the first-team reps in practice this week, and will likely draw the start and heavier workload if Thomas can't go. Undrafted rookie Chris Ivory would also be in the mix, and is the favorite for goal-line touches. Neither is a safe fantasy play. Lance Moore and Jeremy Shockey also figure to see increased looks from Drew Brees if Thomas misses.
