The Saints are heading to Las Vegas on Monday for their first road game of the year. Let’s look at some of the injury report highlights.
The New Orleans Saints are going to play in front of the nation for their first prime-time game of the year today. Who Dat Nation is ready to show why the black and gold are going to run the league this year.
The Saints are also heading into Las Vegas where the Raiders are debuting their new stadium to the world today. This will be the first time that either team (Raiders or Saints) have played inside the new stadium in Nevada.
Ahead of today’s game, let’s take a look at what the Saints injury report looks like.
Cesar Ruiz and P.J. Williams – Playing
Cesar Ruiz and P.J. Williams both found themselves on this list last week due to different injuries. The Saints missed both of them on the field, and it showed. Week 2 will be the first display that we will get of the Saints’ newest first-round draft pick.
Marcus Davenport – OUT
Marcus Davenport was another player that found himself of the Week 1 list and was out. Again, this week Davenport will not suit up with an elbow injury. Davenport didn’t practice at all this week — not even limited.
Chase Hansen – OUT
Here’s another shocker — a Saints linebacker injured. Hansen was a participant in Thursday’s practice. He was limited in Friday and didn’t practice on Saturday. As a result, he has been officially listed as out for today’s game.
Michael Thomas – OUT
This has been the question on everyone’s mind going into this game. What is the status of superstar receiver Michael Thomas? Well, unfortunately, as much as Thomas wants to play through it, it is best he takes 2-3 weeks off.
He did not practice at all this week. I would expect him to be DNP for much of this next week as well.
The New Orleans Saints, coming off of a monstrous Week 1 win, are looking to take their first shot at prime time to show the nation what Who Dat nation is all about. I expect this game to be a blow out fast.
