When Will Pierre Thomas Return?

The latest injury update has Saints running back Pierre Thomas listed as questionable for Sunday's game, meaning there's a 50/50 chance he'll suit up against the Eagles. But Jeff Duncan, like me, thinks the odds are much less than that.

I'd be surprised to see Thomas play at this point, because I don't see the need to rush him back if he's not 100 percent yet. I suppose it's possible Thomas could suit up as a No. 3 tailback, but I wouldn't count on it.

As you know, I expressed my concerns and fears regarding Thomas' injury last week when it caused him to miss the first regular season game this week. Now it's looking as if his knee will keep him out of another game. While Mike Bell has been a pleasant surprise, I'm not so sure he can keep up this pace. So when will Pierre make his triumphant return to the football field and start what many have hoped will be a huge season for him? Does his injury worry you? Has Pierre been overshadowed by Bell? When he does return, how effective will he be? Lot's of questions, even ones I haven't asked. Let's hear your answers.
