Left tackle Terron Armstead (knee) was present, but did not participate in Friday’s practice, the final session before the Saints release their official injury report for the Atlanta game.

Wide receiver Marques Colston (chest), rookie tackle Andrus Peat (concussion) and linebacker Dannell Ellerbe (hip) were not present at the portion of practice open to the media.

Every other Saint was spotted at the portion of practice open to the media.

New Orleans will release its official injury report later this afternoon. NFL rules require that teams only report a player’s participation during the open period of practice, so what’s seen in the open period can be different from the official report.
