NEW ORLEANS (AP) Saints running back Pierre Thomas is set to return Monday night against Baltimore after missing the past four games with rib and shoulder injuries.

Also available to play for New Orleans are starting cornerback Keenan Lewis, who has missed intermittent practices because of a knee injury, and starting middle linebacker Curtis Lofton, who missed a practice last week with shoulder soreness.

However, veteran receiver Robert Meachem, who had been listed as questionable with an ankle injury, has been scratched.

Baltimore right guard Marshal Yanda (knee) and fullback Kyle Juszczyk (foot) both are active after being limited in practice. The Ravens are not missing any starters and have de-activated five healthy players, including nose tackle Terrence Cody, defensive end DeAngelo Tyson and inside linebacker Arthur Brown.
