Inactives: Ivory out in Baltimore

RB Chris Ivory made the trip to frigid Baltimore, entered the field to warm up a bit, but wasn't activated by the Saints.  Pierre Thomas and Reggie Bush will carry the load for the Saints today, as well as Julius Jones who is active.

The temperature is currently just below freezing in Baltimore.

Also inactive is TE David Thomas, who had a minor knee procedure this week and may be out until the regular season finale.  KR Courtney Roby, who suffered a traumatic concussion last week against the Rams, remains on the 53-man roster but is inactive.

DT Anthony Hargrove, after missing two days of practice and practicing only limitedly on Friday, is also inactive because of a lingering knee injury suffered against Seattle.

Also inactive are reserve linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar, versatile reserve FS Usama Young, and rookies CB Patrick Robinson and OT Charles Brown. 

With Young and Robinson out because of an ankle injury, the Saints will continue to use safety Darren Sharper, cornerback Leigh Torrence is expected to play in nickel situations.  The Saints use versatile free safety Malcolm Jenkins as a cornerback sometimes as well. 

Rookie DE Junior Galette is active, as are recently-signed linebackers Kawika Mitchell and Ramon Humber.  This will be Galette's third NFL game.  He recorded his first NFL tackle against Seattle the last time he was in uniform.
