Following Wednesday’s practice, the New Orleans Saints have released their first injury report of the week in regards to Sunday’s contest at home against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

New Orleans Saints:

C Jonathan Goodwin (Neck) – Did not practice

RB Mark Ingram (Hand) – Did not practice

FB Erik Lorig (Ankle) – Did not practice

CB Corey White (Foot) – Did not practice

LT Terron Armstead (Head) – Limited

S Marcus Ball (Hamstring) – Limited

CB Patrick Robinson (Thigh) – Limited

LB David Hawthorne (Ankle) – Limited

LB Curtis Lofton (Shoulder) – Full participant

TE Benjamin Watson (Groin) – Full participant

Tampa Bay Buccaneers: 

DE Larry English (Hamstring) – Did not practice

WR Mike Evans (Groin) – Did not practice

S Dashon Goldson (Ankle) – Did not practice

DE Michael Johnson (Ankle) – Did not practice

QB Josh McCown (Thumb) – Did not practice

TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (Ankle) – Did not practice

LB Mason Foster (Shoulder) – Limited

DT Gerald McCoy (Hand) – Limited

This could very well be the last game the Saints are without running back Mark Ingram since the team will be heading into their Week 6 bye following Sunday’s contest.  It’s good to finally see Marcus Ball out there after missing the first four games.  He may not be ready to suit up and play, but he could very well return in Week 7.

Between McCoy, Goldson, English, Evans and Johnson, the Bucs seem to have some big names who are banged up at the moment, but let’s not count anybody out just yet — we’ve got four more days until game time.

Now is the time for the Saints to recuperate, get the win and gain some confidence heading into the bye.  It’s been a rough start, but it’s still early.  Let’s look forward to another few days of good practice and hopefully a win on Sunday to get the team back on track.
