The New Orleans Saints will be missing one of their biggest weapons tomorrow night in Philadelphia when they battle the Eagles in a wild card playoff game.

Leading rusher Pierre Thomas, who also finished second on the team in receptions this season (77), has officially been ruled OUT for tomorrow night’s matchup. Thomas suffered a chest injury versus the Buccaneers last week.

“One of the strengths of PIerre is his versatility,” said coach Sean Payton today. “Both in the passing game, the running game, and in regards to protection.”

Thomas also has a history of performing extremely well in cold weather games for the Saints. No other player has been ruled OUT for New Orleans.

With Thomas sidelined, rookie Khiry Robinson, Mark Ingram, Darren Sproles, and Travaris Cadet will all be leaned on to pick up the load.

The Saints (11-5) play at Philadelphia (10-6) tomorrow night at 7:10.
