Saints' RB Pierre Thomas Will Perform In playoffs With three fractured ribs

The New Orleans Saints suffered their third loss of the season when the Carolina Panthers routed them 23-10 (albeit with Drew Brees on the bench), but running back Pierre Thomas isn't interested in sitting out another game. Jeff Duncan, of The Times-Picayune tweeted that Thomas said he will suit up in the playoffs despite his three fractured ribs. Thomas will wear a flak jacket to protect his torso and a superman cap to protect his team.

The Saints are off with a bye, and will take on the lowest-seeded team to win during wildcard weekend the following week.
