"I think I'll be fine," he said. "I think I'll end up playing on Sunday. But I'm not sure. It just depends on how I feel coming into tomorrow or Saturday. "

Most significantly, running back Chris Ivory, who was limited on Wednesday, did not practice Thursday. The change in his status was not due to a setback, Coach Sean Payton stressed, but an injection Ivory received to boost the healing process in his stressed hamstring.
The shot, called a PRP, an acronym for "platelet rich plasma," is so painful Ivory confided he might not have gone through with it had he seen the giant needle involved.
"I'm not really sure what it means, but I know what happens, the process," Ivory said. "They take blood out of your veins and they spin it in a machine and your red blood cells I believe drop to the bottom."


Earlier this season Andre Johnson high ankle Sprain and didn't miss his next game because of this therapy.



Hines Ward sprained his MCL in the AFC championship game a few years ago and received this treatment and Played fully in SuperBowl



Takashi Saito, the closer for the L.A. Dodgers, was able to pitch in the playoffs thanks to a PRP injection into his right elbow's ulnar collateral ligament, which saved him from Tommy John surgery.

Troy Polamalu has had the procedure done twice. Once for a Strained Calf and was able to play the next game and the other time for an MCL tear and on the MCL tear he only missed four games no surgery instead of surgery and 8 games like usual.

I think the fact that Ivory was Pulled from the Game before he had a chance to make the injury a bad injury coupled with the fact that they didn't practice him Mon,Tues, (he practiced some on Wed), the received the treatment which made it to where he couldn't practice on Thursday. Plus the fact In articles where by Ivory's own statement they will be testing in Saturday as well, you can not assume that he won't play because he didn't practice today.
 
Just like with PT not on that field.
Look for him for Atlanta
 
Very cold weather is not condusive to muscle issues.

His warm up will have to begin long before everyone else.
 
Rest him.
Save him for the road.
If we lose to the ravens it is an afc team. So it is not as important as the falcons game.
 
If PT is healthy why would we activate Ivory? It seems like to big a risk. We're playing to win in the playoffs, not risk players against Baltimore.
 
Would love to have Ivory to pound the rock, Reggie to keep Ray Lewis honest, and pierre could be deadly on screen against an over committed Ravens defense. If and when we get a two score lead and/or 3rd or 4th and short that is when I'll miss Ivory the most.
 
I think it's humorous that all of the sudden people think Chris is the key to whether we win or lose this game.

We did ok with the twosome of Bush and PT last year, I think we'll be ok if he has to sit this one out.

But remember, Roby will be out as well. PT will prolly be his replacement as the KR (or Meachem, though Id rather have PT here mostly for vision and ball security) Hopefully, we won't need him much in that area (meaning the Ravens ain't scoring). But IF we do, the last thing we need is for a still rusty PT to have to get out in the cold and overdo it.
 
So we only have two active RB's if "Tusk" is held back? This is going to be a tougher game than it first appeared to me.

While Chris Ivory isn't a hinge-pin to a SAINTS victory, he sure does bring a big game when he is playing. I think we all can agree his reckless abandon as a Rusher is a wonderful sight to behold.

If we don't win this game vs. the other dirty turds and the real dirty turds put two games between us with a win against Seattle, then next Mondays' Game doesn't mean that much either. We won't be able to catch atl anyway, As long as we stay ahead or even with TB we're good to geaux, Right?

If we finish 11-5 that still positions us into the post season.

All in all, it makes sense to save Chris Ivory but I'm not too fond of putting PT on that cold field either? This is gettting sort of dicey with our RB situation. Perhaps it's time to ring up Heath Evans' # and give him a game to display all of that versitilty everyone has offered to me to explain his value............

If Ivory is ruled out then J. Jones will be activated.
