The New Orleans Saints will be without running back Pierre Thomas in Saturday's Wild Card round game against the Eagles.

Thomas was ruled out due to a chest injury sustained against the Buccaneers last week.

Thomas led the Saints this regular season in rushing yards with 549, adding two touchdown runs as well. He finished second in receptions with 77, which went for 513 yards and three touchdowns.

With Thomas out, Darren Sproles will see a bigger role in the passing game. Mark Ingram and Khiry Robinson will be the primary runners.
