The New Orleans Saints shifted running back Chris Ivory from the reserve/physically unable to perform list to the active/PUP list on Wednesday, opening the door to his possible return to action Sunday in St. Louis.

Coach Sean Payton said no decision has been made on whether Ivory or rookie Mark Ingram, recovering from a deep heel bruise suffered late in New Orleans' 62-7 win over Indianapolis, will play against the Rams. If Ingram can't go, however, Payton said Ivory would almost certainly be in the lineup.

"Yes, I think so," Payton said. "Just think about that, though: If Mark couldn't go, we'd go into the game with just two halfbacks."

Although the Saints have indicated for some time that Ivory is fully healthy, he and Payton hinted it was only recently that the possibility of him returning became reality.

"Three weeks ago I think we were discussing him, and I would say probably for the last two games he would have been healthy and ready to play and certainly is now," Payton said, adding one week to the "certainty" schedule Ivory offered in the locker room. "The challenges beginning today are getting acclimated to the football specifics. Not only did he take snaps with our offense, but he took a lot of scout-team snaps. The key is just getting into that football shape where he's used to contact and used to doing some of the things regardless of rehab and conditioning that you can't simulate until you play football. That's the big thing."

If he plays I hope he only get 3-5 carries to see if he is rally o.k., if he is, our beast is back and the way the O- line is getting a push- look out.

This would make sense. We can use Jedadiah Collins for a third down back.

He can "imbigen" our soul!!

Well, Ingram is not expected to play, so I think Ivory will be activated this week. I would expect to see Pierre Thomas get the bulk of the work with Ivory getting a few touches here and there.
