“That’s the plan,” Coach Sean Payton said. Asked if that meant Thomas would play, Payton paused and replied, “that’s the plan.”
Thomas, for his part, clearly thinks he’ll be in the mix. He was all smiles at his locker room, and said he feels able to do all the things that made him both the team’s leading rusher in its championship 2009 season as well as a potent receiver coming out of the backfield.
