Shocker! Pierre Thomas OUT once again
For those of you who bought in to the “Pierre Thomas will play” hype earlier in the week, you may want to stop reading.
Actually, scratch that. You better keep reading, or you’re likely going to have a dead starting roster spot in Week 13.
We’re sorry to inform you that for the ninth-consecutive game, Thomas will not play due to an ankle injury. Despite reports to the contrary earlier this week, Thomas’ ankle is still in bad shape and he will be unable to go Sunday in Cincinnati.
Word on the street is that Thomas will be back in Week 14, but we won’t hold our breath.
With Thomas out, the stock of running backs Chris Ivory and Reggie Bush just went up a bit entering Sunday’s showdown with a Bengals defense that ranks 23rd in the league against the run.
