Monday Night Football is just a few short days away.  The New Orleans Saints, who sit at 4-6 in the NFC South, are desperate for a win and will need all the healthy pieces they can get against a tough 6-4 Baltimore Ravens team led by head coach John Harbaugh.  With Friday’s practices in the books, both teams have released their second injury reports of the week.

Good news came yesterday with the return of Pierre Thomas (missed four games) and Robert Meachem to practice.  Well, it comes again today — Keenan Lewis returned for a limited session on the field, along with Curtis Lofton and Travaris Cadet.

Lewis injured his knee against the San Francisco 49ers two weeks ago and was limited to only ten snaps Sunday during the beat-down handed to the Black and Gold by the Cincinnati Bengals.

With the Ravens’ speedy wide receivers, including Saints killer and former Carolina Panthers WR Steve Smith, Lewis’ presence will be crucial Monday night.  Let’s hope Pierre Thomas continues to progress throughout the week as well — we could see the rebirth of a strong screen game with his return.

Baltimore is looking pretty healthy all around, but we’ll be sure to monitor both teams through the weekend, keeping you up to date with any changes, Who Dat Nation.
