The New Orleans Saints issued their first injury report of the week today for their Sunday matchup at home against the Buffalo Bills. It has some repeat names on the list, and a few that stand out.
DID NOT PRACTICE
CB Jabari Greer (Non-Football Injury), T Zach Strief (Ankle), DE Tyrunn Walker (Knee), RB Mark Ingram (Toe), S Roman Harper (Knee), DE Cameron Jordan (Ankle), TE Jimmy Graham (Foot)
WR Lance Moore (Hand), S Malcolm Jenkins (Back), CB Rod Sweeting (Hip)
We aren’t surprised to see Jimmy Graham out. Sean Payton addressed the situation with the press Wednesday.
“Each day we’ll just take a peek on how he’s progressing and be smart about it,” Payton said in speaking with the Buffalo News.
Tight end Ben Watson said this afternoon that he’s ready for increased reps if Jimmy Graham is unable to go.
It’s early, but I’ll begin to worry if Graham is unable to practice Friday, and his status is uncertain heading into the weekend.
While Graham likely steals the headlines, there’s a lot to keep an eye for Cameron Jordan’s injury sustained in New England. It could be more precautionary than anything, but we will have to see how he progresses. The Saints definitely want to keep their best pass rusher on the field.
However, on the flip side, it’s great to see Lance Moore back in full action. It was the first time he’s seen action since the Arizona game.
