If the Saints had practiced today, a handful of players with new injuries would have missed the theoretical practice session.

On the hypothetical practice report for Monday, New Orleans lists running back Khiry Robinson (forearm), running back Pierre Thomas (rib/shoulder), linebacker David Hawthorne (hand), and fullback Austin Johnson (knee) as missing the session.

Tight end Jimmy Graham (shoulder), center Jonathan Goodwin (knee/ankle), and linebacker Kyle Knox (ankle) as being limited.

In reality, the Saints were off Monday and will return to practice Tuesday. The league mandates that teams playing Thursday night issue a practice report on Monday.
