Injury report for Saints short for Thursday practice

As the New Orleans Saints head into the match up against the Philadelphia Eagles they are going to need all the healthy bodies they can get.  Thursday’s injury report after practice was short but involved two key players.

Running back Darren Sproles was held out due to a hand injury.  Sproles is usually pretty durable so hopefully we’ll see him back for Friday’s practice.  The extent or nature of the injury was not known.

Special teams captain Courtney Roby was also held out due to a left shoulder injury that he sustained while trying to make a catch in the game against the Denver Broncos.  Along with being valuable on special teams, Roby is also being used more this year as a wide receiver.

Linebacker David Hawthorne who has missed a good bit of time due to a hamstring injury was a full go for the first time in a while.

      You show are right Chris Ivory can get the job done a lot better than Ingram. I’m not saying that Ingram not good but just need to step him game up, like he are paid to do all is fair and right is right.

        …Well, L.J., Sproles is done for the foreseeable future. It’s more than overdue for N.O. to implement a more balanced offensive attack. Simply put; a RUNNING game! Saints have to tweak offensive strategies to win games b/c this defense we have this year can’t be fixed.
