KR Roby, TE Thomas out; Ivory too?

WR/KR Courtney Roby and TE David Thomas have been ruled out of the Ravens game while for the Saints, the injury circus at runningback continues.

Kick returner Courtney Roby is still recovering from a concussion, and while the Saints haven't ruled him out this season, he has already been ruled out of the team's road trip to Baltimore.

TE David Thomas has also been ruled out, having undergone a minor procedure to repair a torn lateral meniscus in his knee.  Thomas could return for the regular season finale.

After missing practice this week with a hamstring problem that kept him out of the final three quarters against St. Louis, it looks like hard-running rookie RB Chris Ivory will miss the Ravens game.  He is officially listed as questionable, as is DT Anthony Hargrove (knee), though Hargrove was able to practice limitedly.

With the absence of Ivory, Pierre Thomas will be even more important in his second game back from injury.  Thomas will split time with Robert Meachem as the team's kick returner, with Roby out.
