NEW ORLEANS – David Thomas (not the founder of Wendy's) was the starting tight end for New Orleans as Jeremy Shockey was out with a toe injury.

Thomas actually lined up at fullback on the first play. He’s gotten lots of playing time this season. Update: As I was writing, Thomas just caught a pass on New Orleans’ second play of the game. Look for more of that.
