Saints RB Ivory ruled out vs. Ravens

Saints rookie RB Chris Ivory couldn’t shake a hamstring injury, so he won’t play Sunday against the Ravens.

Ivory, who was listed as questionable after missing practice Friday, is New Orleans’ leading rusher with 683 yards and five touchdowns. His absence likely means a bigger role for 2009 leading rusher Pierre Thomas, who returned last week after missing nine games with an ankle injury.

Veteran WR Donte’ Stallworth was a surprise inclusion on the Ravens’ inactive list. He wasn’t listed on Friday’s injury report, and he played in the previous six games. However, he made just two catches for 82 yards.

Full inactives list:

RB Chris Ivory

T Charles Brown
TE David Thomas

Ravens
