Running back hurting
METAIRIE, La. (AP) - Saints running back Pierre Thomas is using
crutches after practice to keep pressure off his sprained left
ankle and says he's frustrated by the length of his recovery.
Thomas has not played since the injury occurred late in the
Saints' Week 3 loss to Atlanta. On Wednesday, he was at practice,
participating in the team stretch and did some light jogging. But
on Thursday Thomas was absent from practice during the portion open
Thomas says his ankle is not getting worse and he can jog
without much pain, but that trainers have advised him to keep
weight off of it when possible.
Fellow running back Reggie Bush, who is recovering from a broken
right leg, also did not practice on Thursday.
