The Saints released their second injury report of the week, and the names haven’t changed from yesterday, but as for their status? That’s a different story.
DID NOT PRACTICE
TE Josh Hill (Hamstring)
S Rafael Bush (Ankle)
LB Keyunta Dawson (Calf)
DE Glenn Foster (Knee)
DT Brodrick Bunkley (Back)
T Terron Armstead (Nose)
Armstead & Bunkley did not practice yesterday, so that’s a plus that they were able to get things going today. Should Bunkley not play this weekend, and I would assume he would, John Jenkins would get the starting nod at Nose Tackle.
On the other sideline, Rams Rookie WR Tavon Austin (Ankle) & CB Janoris Jenkins (Back) were the biggest players missing from today’s practice. I shouldn’t have to tell you, but they’re two big players to keep an eye on heading into Sunday.
Should Dawson not play Sunday, it would be his third straight missed game of the season. Bush missed his first game of the season against the Panthers, which was a lot easier to handle with the Saints having their full complement of starters at Safety.
We’ll get the final injury report of the week tomorrow afternoon around 3:00PM. with this being a late game on Sunday (3:25PM CST kickoff), we’ll get the full inactive list around 1:00PM.
