The New Orleans Saints have released their final injury report for their highly anticipated grudge match with the San Francisco 49ers for Sunday.


RB Pierre Thomas (Rib/Shoulder) – Did Not Practice

RB Khiry Robinson (Arm) – Did Not Practice

LB David Hawthorne (Hand) – Did Not Practice


RB Mark Ingram (Shoulder) – Limited

C Jonathan Goodwin (Knee/Ankle) – Limited

T Zach Strief (Chest) – Did Not Practice

WR Robert Meachem (Ankle) – Did Not Practice


TE Jimmy Graham (Shoulder) – Full

WR Kenny Stills (Thigh) – Limited

For the second week in a row, the Saints will be without the services of Thomas and Robinson, and with Ingram’s status questionable, it does raise a little speculation as to how much of a workload he’ll receive on Sunday. Travaris Cadet and Edwin Baker will be handling more backfield duties.

As for Robert Meachem, he appeared on the injury report yesterday, which may yield way for a Nick Toon sighting on Sunday. However, that’s more speculation. Ramon Humber will fill in for David Hawthorne, who will be missing his second straight game with injury. Tackle Bryce Harris and Center/Guard Tim Lelito would start if Goody and Strief were unable to play.

As for the 49ers, two of their biggest defensive assets, Patrick Willis (Toe) and Dan Skuta (Ankle) did not practice today, and remain questionable for Sunday’s matchup.
