Chris Ivory (hamstring, questionable) is not expected to be active for Sunday's game against the Falcons.

He isn't 100 percent and Mark Ingram is back, so Ivory may have been scratched anyway. Coach Sean Payton has made it clear that the Saints won't activate three tailbacks on game days. Darren Sproles and Pierre Thomas are locked in.

It's been going on since college... this should be of no surprise.

What do you expect..its a hamstring.. dude hasn't played all year .... why do people love to hate on Ivory he wasnt even drafted!....Ingram was hurt to oh but thats ok ..he is our prize.... Ivory looks more explosive already..Give it a rest..he will be fine...Foster has been fighting a bad hammy all year..so has Johnson for the Texans...would you ditch them?

Blame the training staff..

It's the same reason Shockey was always hurt. They play mad!! They don't give a crap. They go all out when they are in. Honestly wish MORE of our players had this attitude. Way to many body throws at ankles for my liking.
Im sorry, hijacked and went defense. My bad..back to topic.

New Orleans Saints injuries: Vilma, McBride out; Moore, Robinson, Ivory questionable - New Orleans Saints Football NFL News - NOLA.com

He is no more questionable than the rest on this list...I guess Porter is done to..cause he sure in the hell cant stay healthy...and was 2nd rd pick..

I don't think the injury is that bad. I'm sure if we needed him, he would play. But, we don't need him because we have three other backs. I think we should keep all backs on the roster and just rest the one that's least healthy each week. Just like their doing.

I agree with you NOS2B2. One has to wonder if we weren't so rich at RB if he'd be suiting up this Sunday.

KevSears 11-11-2011 02:19 PM

We ought to be thankful we've got an effective running back in Cris Ivory...nevermind the hammy. I don't know why we're grumbling....almost every team this year had running backs who have been injured. I don't care that its after just one game....we're a better team with him than without him.

Ingram lasted how many games?

What's more lame, a hamstring pull or a bruised heel? How do you get a bruised heel?

But am I disappointed that Ivory cannot stay healthy? Absolutely. I don't however hold it against him. He's a walk-on for Christ's sake, not a Heisman Trophy winner. Ingram should have come out of the gate at 5 yards per carry. He did not.

THE most crucial one-yard-gain this year and he couldn't get it.

If Ivory ever does get healthy and stay healthy, Ingram will fight for a spot.

If Ivory wasn't so brittle, especially in a zone blocking scheme, I think he could terrorize this league. Physical, fast, and dare I say explosive when fully healthy. There is a silver lining for us... people aren't going to try to overpay for his services when he becomes a free agent b/c he's so injury prone increasing our chances of keeping retaining him.

PT23, Sproles, Ingram, Ivory

Nom nom nom.
