The New Orleans Saints have endured debilitating injuries to arguably their two most important players this NFL season, and yet the team is still in the Super Bowl conversation.

It just goes to show that having depth on the roster is just as crucial in the NFL as having star power.

The Saints played six of their first seven games this season without wide receiver Michael Thomas, who set an NFL record last season with 149 catches and was voted NFL Offensive Player of the Year.

Thomas was sidelined by ankle and hamstring injuries, and he served a one-game suspension for fighting with a teammate. Thomas returned in Week 9.

In Week 10, the Saints lost quarterback Drew Brees. The future Hall of Famer and NFL's all-time leader in touchdown passes suffered fractured ribs and a collapsed lung in New Orleans' win over the San Francisco 49ers.

Brees is going to be out indefinitely, and the Saints (7-2) just hope he can be ready in time for the NFL playoffs. While Brees recovers, backup QB Taysom Hill has been tabbed to start in Week 11 when the Saints face the Atlanta Falcons.

Brees is the biggest name in the NFL to hit the inactive list for Week 11. Here are the other players that have been ruled out for their team's games this week as of Friday evening.
