For the most part, the Saints’ official injury report on Thanksgiving day matched the first one of the week, with two exceptions.
Rookie middle linebacker Stephone Anthony was listed as limited with a leg injury — the first time he’s appeared on the report this season — and veteran linebacker Ramon Humber (hamstring) was upgraded to a full participant.
Dannell Ellerbe (hip), David Hawthorne (thigh), Keenan Lewis(hip/knee) and Damian Swann (concussion) were all listed as did not practice.
In addition to Anthony, left tackle Terron Armstead (knee), linebacker Hau’oli Kikaha (knee) and running back Mark Ingram(shoulder) were limited.
Humber and Willie Snead (knee) were both full participants.
- New Saints defensive coordinator Dennis Allen crucial to Saints’ stingy third-down defense, but can he help on early downs, too?
- A good deed indeed by Saints receiver Willie Snead, whose Thanksgiving outreach brought him more than he expected
- Saints defense takes collective responsibility for Rob Ryan’s departure, moves forward
