The New Orleans Saints will be a little short-handed on the offensive line against Atlanta on Thursday night.

Left guard Andrus Peat, who has played every one of the Saints' 796 snaps on offense so far this season, has been declared out due to a groin injury, and left tackle Terron Armstead is questionable after missing last week's win over Carolina with a groin injury. 

Running back Mark Ingram, who ranks fourth in the NFL in rushing with 922 yards, is also listed as questionable, but he did not practice on Tuesday or Wednesday, leaving his status somewhat in doubt. 

But the Saints might be getting some key players back in the secondary. Rookie cornerback Marshon Lattimore (ankle) and rookie free safety Marcus Williams (groin) are questionable, leaving open the possibility that they will play. Both players were limited in practice on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Defensive end Trey Hendrickson (knee) was the only other player listed as questionable. Cornerbacks Ken Crawley (abdomen) and P.J. Williams (shoulder), along with linebacker A.J. Klein (groin), were not listed with a status, meaning they will likely play.
