Running back Pierre Thomas has returned from an injury to help bolster an already potent offense. Jason Munz, of, has the story, below.

For the first time all season, the New Orleans Saints had every running back it started the season with active, healthy and at its disposal.

The Saints not having Reggie Bush, Pierre Thomas and Chris Ivory active at the same time for any game this season is kind of like the Beatles going on tour and having to go with a replacement rhythm section for three-quarters of the entire tour because Paul McCartney and/or Ringo Starr are physically unable to perform.
