If that was the plan Sunday, when Thomas returned to the New Orleans Saints after missing nine games because of the peskiest ankle injury never classified as a break or torn ligaments, it died as soon as newly anointed workhorse Chris Ivory went to the sideline in the first half with a tender hamstring.

And it stayed there as soon as Thomas showed he was up for the challenge.
