Stephone Anthony's high ankle sprain is not quite healthy enough for the former first-rounder to make his 2017 debut yet. 

The third-year linebacker, who has practiced on a limited basis the past two weeks, is inactive again, joining tackles Zach Strief (knee) and Terron Armstead (shoulder).

But the Saints defense did get a linebacker back in the fold. Nate Stupar, the linebacker and special teamer who missed the season opener with a hamstring injury, is active, along with rookie defensive end Trey Hendrickson, who missed the opener with an illness.

Wide receiver Austin Carr, who spent the preseason with the Patriots, was a healthy scratch, along with quarterback Taysom Hill, cornerback Ken Crawley and defensive end Al-Quadin Muhammad.
