Pierre Thomas injury looked scary for the New Orleans Saints

San Francisco - The most glaring injury the New Orleans Saints suffered Saturday came in the game's opening drive when running back Pierre Thomas took a shot to the helmet from 49ers safety Donte Whitner. The Saints had driven from their own 20-yard line to the San Francisco 7 when quarterback Drew Brees flicked a pass to Thomas in the right flat and he headed toward the goal line. He and Whitner collided at the 2-yard line and Thomas crumpled to the ground, the ball jarred loose in a fumble linebacker Patrick Willis would recover as the first of the Saints' five turnovers.

Thomas did not appear in the locker room after the game and thus it was unclear if he was knocked unconscious on the play, as it appeared. Coach Sean Payton offered no further details, either.

"A player like Pierre - obviously you want to stay as healthy as you can, and he's going to be OK, that's the most important thing," Payton said. "It happened early on and I thought Darren and Chris did a real good job of handling more snaps than usual. Pierre does a lot of things well for us, screens are a part of it. It just meant those other guys were going to have to pick up the workload. Certainly there's a number of things we think Pierre does well for us, and you hate to lose a good player like that."

I saw it right off. PT got hit and just went limp. Legs not moving, nothing. Scared the crap out of me because I saw immediately that he was knocked out. I was screaming at the tv for everybody to get off of him cause he was injured. My wife thought I was nuts. I have not heard how he's doing, since I hav'nt looked at any football news today. I hope he's ok.
