The injuries continue to pile up for the New Orleans Saints. On Thursday, six players did not practice with two of those players being starting offensive linemen.
The six players who did not practice for the Saints on Thursday were Erik McCoy, Mark Ingram, Marshon Lattimore, Marcus Maye, Andrus Peat, and Pete Werner. Obviously, McCoy and Peat are the two starting o-linemen who didn't suit up, which would leave the team incredibly thin at the o-line. Cesar Ruiz played center when McCoy exited the Week 9 loss while Calvin Throckmorton slid in at right guard but who would play in Peat's absence?
Lattimore is still on the shelf and that's been a big loss for NOLA and their secondary but Maye also missed Thursday's practice. Werner is arguably the biggest loss for the team though and their defense would be in an even bigger hole if he's unable to play this weekend in Pittsburgh.
Saints Week 10 Injury Report
While he was a limited participant, fans aren't used to seeing Cameron Jordan on the injury report. He's missed just one game in his lengthy career, which came last year due to a positive COVID test. It'd be massive if he didn't play this weekend.
Marcus Davenport was also a limited participant after leaving Week 9's loss due to a calf injury. He's struggled with injuries in his career but has so far managed to stay healthy.
On offense, Ryan Ramczyk was a limited participant and Jarvis Landry also practiced. It'd be huge to have Landry back this week but the Saint should only play him if he's healthy.
The Saints have enough problems on their hands this season but injuries have been a major problem for them in 2022. Those injury concerns continue for a Week 10 matchup against the Steelers.
