The New Orleans Saints issued their final injury report for the game against the Cardinals on Sunday, and it’s not good news.
The team announced that safeties Roman Harper (Knee) & Isa Abdul-Quddus (Ankle) are officially ruled out for Sunday.
G Jahri Evans (Hamstring), NT Brodrick Bunkley (Calf), RB Mark Ingram (Toe), DE Tyrunn Walker (Knee), DE Glenn Foster (DE), & DE Tom Johnson (Hamstring) are listed as all listed as Questionable.
With Harper & Abdul-Quddus out, it means you will see a ton of Kenny Vaccaro to pair up with Malcolm Jenkins, and Rafael Bush to sub in for those two.
Perhaps the more glaring issue is Jahri Evans, who has not missed any of his 114 games as a Saint, since he started in 2006. In a sense, he’s been with Drew Brees & Sean Payton since Day 1. Evans is currently tied for 3rd in the NFL with his active game streak. Backing up Evans is undrafted rookie Tim Lelito out of Grand Valley state. Lelito impressed in training camp & preseason, and earned a roster spot accordingly.
Questionable means they are 50/50 to play, so we only hope that out of the players that do play, it would be at least be Jahri Evans.
How would this affect things if Jahri Evans is not able to go? Should he tough it out and play? Let us know below!
