The Saints will be without two of their running backs Sunday night against the Green Bay Packers.

The team announced Friday that Khiry Robinson (forearm) and Pierre Thomas (rib/shoulder) have been ruled out. Unless another roster move is made, this means Mark Ingram and Travaris Cadet will be asked to carry the load at running back.

Center Jonathan Goodwin (knee/ankle) and linebacker Kyle Knox (ankle) have also been ruled out. Tim Lelito is expected to get the start at center.

Cornerback Keenan Lewis (knee/shoulder) linebacker Ramon Humber (ankle), tight end Jimmy Graham (shoulder), and defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley (concussion) are questionable.

Cornerback Patrick Robinson (hamstring) is probable.

The Green Bay Packers listed defensive end Datone Jones (ankle) as out for Sunday’s game. Cornerback Sam Shields (knee/doubtful), safety Morgan Burnett (calf/questionable) and running back James Starks (ankle/probable) were also listed on the injury report.
