Saints placed RB Chris Ivory on injured reserve with an ankle injury, ending his season.

Scratch him off your playoff league cheat sheets and upgrade Pierre Thomas. The Saints never updated Ivory's condition after he was spotted on crutches Sunday night, but it's obviously a long-term injury. Ivory's loss is a considerable one for New Orleans. The rookie had given the offense its first legitimate between-the-tackles chain mover since Deuce McAllister's prime. With Thomas (ankle) and Marques Colston (knee scope) also banged up, the Saints have serious injury concerns heading into the playoffs. Jan. 4 - 4:22 pm et

Still waiting for an official link.

Saints Place Ivory on IR; Sign Wynn

And so the Saints' defense over 4 games of their SB becomes a extremely difficult.

Not good. Get better Pierre, because Julius Jones had a horrible game Sunday, and Reggie can't do it all by himself.

Talking

Still have PT, Bush, Jones & Wynn.

I would be a little more worried if the Saints were playing any team other than the Seahawks.

Saints will be fine.

PT and Reggie need to step up, hope PT is healthy. Reggie looked good last game, lets hope he continues to play like that.
I gotta say even though this is bad news, i kinda expected it, Ivory hasn't been healthy for any 3 games in a row, numerous injuries - only one needs to be bad to have him end up on IR.
But hey, he had a good rookie season, hes a fan favourite

The last few season we'll have a game or two where the RB takes over and gives Brees a break. Ivory did that, it was a little shaky at first but he settled down. I had a bad feeling he wasn't going to hold up with his history but he did the best he could and made a lot of progress in a short span so I commend the man. He left it all on the field unlike a lot of players.
