Pierre Thomas missed 10 games with an ankle injury. The Saints running back went under the knife in mid-January to address the ankle. Despite the injury, Thomas signed a four-year, $12 million deal with the club right before the lockout (Thomas e had been pining for a long-term deal for a few years).
On Wednesday, Thomas told his Twitter followers that he “was outta the boot”. In other words, his ankle is healing and he no longer has to wear a walking boot. Several people misinterpreted the tweet as Thomas saying he was leaving the Saints (“outta the boot” as in, leaving the boot-shaped state of Louisiana).
Thomas figures to be ready for training camp (whenever that might be).
