Once again, the Saints will be without their leading rusher.

Tailback Pierre Thomas, a key part of the ground and passing games for New Orleans, is among the Saints’ inactives for Saturday’s divisional-round game at Seattle.

Thomas has missed the Saints’ first two postseason games with a chest injury.

In regular-season play, Thomas hauled in 77 passes for 513 yards and three TDs and added 549 yards rushing and two TDs on 147 carries for New Orleans.

With Thomas out, Mark Ingram, Darren Sproles, Khiry Robinson and Travaris Cadet are the Saints’ options at running back.
