New Orleans Saints running back, Pierre Thomas is still hopeful he’ll get back on the football field this season but it won’t be this week against the Seattle Seahawks. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that it has not been a high ankle sprain that’s kept Thomas on the sideline for so long but rather a torn tendon in his ankle “which, in hindsight, might have been better served had he undergone surgery to correct it.” Thomas is hopeful he could play in the Thanksgiving day game against the Dallas Cowboys.
With Thomas out again, the Saints offense may get a lift with the possible return of running back, Reggie Bush. While returning a punt, Bush broke his leg Sept. 20 against the San Francisco 49ers. He is listed as questionable for today’s game. If Bush plays he’d be facing his former college coach and current Seahawks head coach, Pete Carroll. Carroll and Bush won a national title at USC where Bush won his now-returned Heisman Trophy.
