Saints coach Sean Payton confirms that RB Pierre Thomas has been placed on Injured Reserve. Payton said Pierre Thomas had a setback last week at practice and that everyone "felt this was the best move."
This is a big blow to the Saints as they lost Chris Ivory to IR yesterday. It looks as if Reggie Bush and Julius Jones will carry the majority of the load for the Saints, with DeSean Wynn also in the mix for a few touches. While Jones should see the bulk of the carries, he doesn't have a track record of producing when given the opportunity. Expect the Saints to lean heavily on the pass.
