Saints released RB Pierre Thomas.
The Saints begin the difficult process of cutting veterans amid their salary-cap nightmare. Currently about $20 million over the cap, the Saints save just $1.735 million with this move. Thomas took a pay cut last offseason and went on to total 600 yards with three TDs on 90 touches. At age 30, he now joins a flooded running-back market. An obvious product of Sean Payton's system, Thomas would do well to command $2 million per year as a passing-game specialist. The Saints have an in-house replacement option in Travaris Cadet.

Saints placed RB Pierre Thomas (ribs) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Teams can place players on I.R. with minor injuries this time of year if they have no playoff hopes. The Saints were eliminated from the postseason hunt when they lost to the Falcons in Week 16. Thomas endured an injury-plagued 2014 season. He turned 30 earlier this month and is signed cheaply through 2016.

Pierre Thomas (ribs) remained sidelined Thursday.

With the Saints eliminated from the playoff picture, Thomas is looking very shaky for Sunday's meaningless finale. His status will be updated on Friday, but he'll most likely be held out for Week 17.

Pierre Thomas did not practice Wednesday due to a rib injury.

When Thomas left the Week 16 loss to the Falcons early, it was announced as a foot injury. Now he's listed with a rib issue. Regardless, we should consider Thomas very questionable for Sunday's meaningless game at Tampa. His absence would upgrade the situation for Mark Ingram and give Khiry Robinson a shot at a few extra touches.

Pierre Thomas exited Week 16 against the Falcons with a foot injury.

Thomas is out for the game. It is unclear when the injury occurred. Thomas' final touch of the game was a 16-yard screen catch in the middle of the first quarter. He did not appear to injury himself on the play. With Travaris Cadet inactive, Mark Ingram could see a bump in pass-game usage. Khiry Robinson will see a bump in snaps as well.
Sun, Dec 21, 2014 02:32:00 PM

Pierre Thomas caught five passes for 83 and rushed for 11 yards on two carries in the Saints' Week 15 win over the Bears.

The PT Cruiser has always seemed to have good games against the Bears, and it was no different n Monday night. On his first touch of the game, Thomas caught a simple screen pass and ripped off 39 yards. The Saints killed the Bears defense with screens the entire first half. Thomas isn't much of a threat as a runner, which leaves him as a hit-or-miss RB3, but he gets a good matchup in Week 16 against Atlanta. Thomas totaled 89 yards on 13 touches against the Falcons in Week 1.
Mon, Dec 15, 2014 11:59:00 PM

Pierre Thomas rushed five times for 38 yards in the Saints' Week 14 loss to the Panthers, adding four catches for 14 additional yards.

It was a standard day for Thomas, who is averaging 8.3 touches and 48 yards from scrimmage in three games since returning from his shoulder injury. Even in a juicy matchup with the Bears, Thomas won't be an appetizing FLEX option for Week 15.
Sun, Dec 7, 2014 06:22:00 PM

Coach Sean Payton said Pierre Thomas "gave us some real good snaps just in the base last week."

Thomas has returned as not just the Saints' much-needed passing back, but also one that contributes in base sets. Although Mark Ingram received 23 carries last week, his volume ceiling isn't nearly as high now with Thomas healthy and Khiry Robinson (arm surgery) also cleared. As for Thomas, he'll need the Saints to be trailing to be a realistic fantasy option -- they're 10-point home favorites over the Panthers this week.

Pierre Thomas rushed for 21 yards on three carries in the Saints' Week 13 win over the Steelers.

He added two catches for 16 yards. Thomas was out-touched 24-5 by Mark Ingram, with the Saints leading for much of the game. Thomas is only an asset when the Saints are dialing up 40-plus pass plays. Drew Brees only uncorked 27 throws in Week 13. Thomas will be a weak FLEX in Week 14 vs. Carolina.
Sun, Nov 30, 2014 05:14:00 PM

Pierre Thomas rushed for 19 yards on five carries in the Saints' Week 12 loss to the Ravens, adding six catches for 37 yards.

Making his return from a four-game absence due to a shoulder injury, Thomas came in and split touches evenly 11-11 with Mark Ingram, though that can be chalked up to game flow with the Saints playing catch-up for the final 20-plus minutes. Thomas' reinsertion into the lineup meant just two touches for Travaris Cadet. Thomas will flirt with RB3/FLEX value down the stretch.
Mon, Nov 24, 2014 11:53:00 PM

Pierre Thomas (shoulder) is listed as probable for Monday night's game against the Ravens.

Thomas practiced on a limited to basis this week and has been cleared to return. He's missed the last four games, leaving his role behind Mark Ingram up in the air. Thomas should be avoided as more than a desperation RB3/FLEX in his first game back.
Sat, Nov 22, 2014 03:15:00 PM

Pierre Thomas (shoulder) participated in Saints practice on a limited basis Friday.

It's his second straight "limited" workout. The Saints will hold another practice on Saturday, at which point Thomas figures to either be listed as probable or with a questionable tag. Assuming Thomas plays against the Ravens -- and we expect him to -- he will be a dicey flex option in his first game back.
Fri, Nov 21, 2014 04:17:00 PM

Pierre Thomas (shoulder) returned to Saints practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

It's Thomas' first practice of any kind since he went down in Week 7. Speaking afterward, Thomas played coy on his status, but was in "high spirits." The Saints have badly missed Thomas in the screen game, and need him back more than ever with Brandin Cooks (thumb) done for the season. Thomas' return shouldn't put a huge dent in Mark Ingram's workload, as the backs play much-different roles. Khiry Robinson (arm) remains sidelined.
Thu, Nov 20, 2014 04:51:00 PM

Pierre Thomas (shoulder) is listed as out for Week 11.

Thomas remains out indefinitely with shoulder and rib injuries.
Fri, Nov 14, 2014 04:02:00 PM

Pierre Thomas (shoulder, ribs) remained sidelined Thursday.

Thomas appears all but certain to miss his fourth consecutive game. Travaris Cadet will continue to handle passing-down work against the Bengals.
