The New Orleans Saints coaching staff have a hard decision to make before facing the New York Giants on Monday Night Football — what to do with four healthy and very productive running backs.

For the first time this season the Saints will have their entire stable of running backs at it’s disposal, and just like interchangeable parts in a Lego set, Sean Payton can mix-and-match who he will use until he achieves the desired result — production.

But it’s unlikely that all four running backs — Pierre Thomas, Darren Sproles, Mark Ingram, and Chris Ivory — will be activated, and it seems at least one won’t see the field against the Giants.
