Rookie cornerback Marshon Lattimore returned to practice on a limited basis on Friday, and the star was listed as questionable by the Saints on the official injury report, leaving open the possibility that he will play against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.
Fellow cornerback P.J. Williams, who did not have an injury earlier in the week, was held out of Friday's practice, and he was also listed as questionable.
With injuries at cornerback, New Orleans promoted rookie cornerback Arthur Maulet from the practice squad, although Maulet told reporters on Friday that he will play all four special teams.
Left tackle Terron Armstead, who missed Wednesday and Thursday's practices with thigh and shoulder injuries, was limited on Friday and listed as questionable. Armstead has repeatedly missed some practices during the week this season, then played on game day.
Tight end Coby Fleener (concussion) and free safety Marcus Williams (groin) were ruled out for Sunday's game.
Every other Saint on the injury report — right tackle Ryan Ramczyk (elbow), running back Trey Edmunds (shoulder), cornerback Ken Crawley (abdomen), defensive end Trey Hendrickson (elbow) and right guard Larry Warford (shoulder) — was listed without a status, which means it's likely that they will play against the Panthers Sunday in a battle for first place in the NFC South.
