Saints Thursday Injury Report


The Saints released their second injury report of the week today, and we have a repeat of names from yesterday, but have one update for you.

DID NOT PRACTICE

S Rafael Bush (Ankle)

LIMITED

TE Josh Hill (Hamstring)
LB Keyunta Dawson (Calf)

FULLY PRACTICED

S Roman Harper (Hip)

Harper was limited in practice yesterday, so the fact that he was able to fully go at it today is a good sign. Look for Harper to be put in a lot of different schemes for Sunday, especially when it comes to run defense.

As for the Panthers, here’s what we’re looking at.

DID NOT PRACTICE

RB Jonathan Stewart (Knee)
WR Steve Smith (Finger)

LIMITED

TE Brandon Williams (Hip)

FULLY PRACTICED

T Jordan Gross (Not Injury Related)
TE Greg Olsen (Foot)
G Travelle Wharton (Not Injury Related)

We won’t shed any tears if we don’t get to play against Steve Smith, but give Keenan Lewis credit for handling Smith in the first game. We definitely need him to do it again on Sunday.

We’ll get the final injury report tomorrow, and since this will be a noon (for us Central Time Zone folks) game, you will get the full inactive list around 10:30AM-11:00AM.
