Saints RB Chris Ivory inactive
Ivory has been declared inactive after experiencing hamstring problems in last week's victory against St. Louis.
Ivory has carried 130 times for 683 yards and five touchdowns.
The Saints have been easing Bush back into the rotation since he first returned in a Thanksgiving game with Dallas. Thomas made his return last week after suffering an ankle injury in late September.
Bush and Thomas likely will get the bulk of the work at running back today, but Julius Jones also could be used as a backup.
