Hau’oli Kikaha, Davis Tull’s move to Saints’ Jack position allows 2015 draft picks to focus on getting after quarterbacks _lowres

Advocate staff photo by MATTHEW HINTON -- Saints outside linebacker Hau'oli Kikaha sacks Dallas Cowboys quarterback Brandon Weeden on Sunday in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

The Saints are going to be without several linebackers this weekend against the Tennessee Titans.

Dannell Ellerbe (hip), Hau’oli Kikaha (ankle) and Ramon Humber (hamstring) have all been ruled out, as well as cornerback Damian Swann (concussion) and quarterback Luke McCown (back).

The Saints’ depth will be tested at linebacker. At strongside linebacker, behind Kikaha, the Saints have Michael Mauti and Mike Mohamed. Kasim Edebali, who has been playing defensive end, could also play linebacker.

David Hawthorne, who is listed as probable with a hamstring injury, would play on the weakside.

New Orleans has a number players listed as probable, including tackle Terron Armstead (knee), cornerback Keenan Lewis (hip), tackle Andrus Peat (knee), and wide receiver Willie Snead (knee).

Cornerback Delvin Breaux, who did not practice for non-injury reasons, is also listed as probable.
