Pierre Thomas Injures Wrist During Drills, Will He Miss Any Time?


In the first day of live tackling Saints running back Pierre Thomas, during 11-on-11 drills, was tackled while attempting a touchdown run in the red zone and came up clutching his left hand/wrist.

He was looked at on the sideline by the trainers before being pulled from practice. No details have been given to the extent of the injury or if he will be held out of more practices this week.

Thomas has been the Saints leading rusher the last two seasons after joining the team as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Illinois.

Thomas had a rocky off-seaon with the Saints front office after threatning to hold out from training camp if he was unable to secure a long term deal with the team.

Eventually he would agree to the Saints tender offer but still hopes to secure a lucrative contract, talks are currently on-going in an effort to just that.

If Thomas’ injury does indeed keep him from participating in practice Reggie Bush, who has lit up the practice field thus far in training camp, along with Lynell Hamilton, P.J. Hill and Chris Ivory will see an increase in reps with the first team offense.
