Pierre Thomas (knee) has been ruled out for Week 17.

Chris Ivory (hamstring) is probable, so look for New Orleans' backfield to be a three-man committee of Ivory, Mark Ingram, and "satellite back" Darren Sproles against Carolina. Thomas, 28, will finish the 2012 season with 827 total yards and two touchdowns. He'll be a late-round pick in 2013 fantasy drafts again.
