The New Orleans Saints continue on a downward spiral after losing their third-straight game at home to the Baltimore Ravens.  The schedule only gets tougher this week as the Black and Gold head to chilly Pennsylvania to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers.  With game time set for 12:00 PM CT on Sunday, both the Saints and Steelers have released their first injury reports of this Thanksgiving week.

For the Saints, injuries have played a big role in the year’s disappointing performance.  Now, it looks like Brodrick Bunkley is likely to miss the remainder of the season with a quadriceps injury.  RB Khiry Robinson remained sidelined in today’s walk-throughs, but he did send out a promising tweet after the Black and Gold wrapped up their session, so maybe a return after a five-game absence is on the horizon.

For the others who were left out and limited, New Orleans will get a two-day break for Thanksgiving, getting a practice in Saturday morning before the team heads to Pittsburgh.

The Steelers are pretty healthy all the way around.  With one of the most explosive offenses in the NFL holding it down in the Steel City, The Saints’ defense will need all hands on deck if they wish to keep their season alive on Sunday.
