It might be hard to find an uglier inactives list than the one the New Orleans Saints are running with this week. They'll have several key players out when they take on the Pittsburgh Steelers in a must-win game.
As we all know, the Saints are somehow still in the running to win the NFC South with just three wins. If they lose this game, it's going to make it tougher for them to keep pace with the Buccaneers, who are still the favorites to win the division even if they have struggled this year.
Below are the final Week 10 inactives reports for both the Saints and the Steelers.
New Orleans Saints Week 10 Inactives Report
WR Marquez Callaway
DE Marcus Davenport
TE J.P. Holtz
RB Mark Ingram
CB Marshon Lattimore
S Marcus Maye
LG Andrus Peat
LB Pete Werner
Pittsburgh Steelers Week 10 Inactives Report
QB Mason Rudolph
CB Ahkello Witherspoon
DB Elijah Riley
S Minkah Fitzpatrick
OG Kendrick Green
LB Mark Robinson
The Saints are obviously missing some key players but not having Werner out there could end up being the biggest blow. Demario Davis is one of the best linebackers in the league but he's not nearly as dangerous without Werner also out there.
The Saints will be without Peat at left guard, which means that Calvin Throckmorton will likely slide over there. They'll also be missing Marquez Callaway, a guy who has had to step up again this season due to Michael Thomas once again missing a chunk of time.
The odds are stacked against New Orleans in this one. Can they overcome the odds and move to 4-6 and keep their playoff hopes alive?
