Nothing much has changed since yesterday’s injury report.  Saints’ WR Robert Meachem landed on the list today with an ankle injury and did not practice, so we’ll be sure to monitor that throughout the rest of the week leading up to the game.

For San Francisco, Patrick Willis remained out of practice Thursday, likely making him a game-time decision.  The All-Pro‘s availability will be crucial against Drew Brees, Mark Ingram and the Saints’ high-powered offense.  If the toe injury isn’t too serious, he’ll be out there Sunday with hopes of being a major disturbance to Brees and company.
