A young New Orleans defense is likely getting a heavy dose of experience on Sunday.
Safety Jairus Byrd, cornerback Keenan Lewis and linebackerDannell Ellerbe have all been listed as probable on the Saints’ official injury report, a good indication all three could make their season debuts against the Cowboys on Sunday Night Football.
Defensive end Cam Jordan also returned to full practice for the first time this week, and on the offensive side of the ball, quarterbackDrew Brees and Brandin Cooks have both been listed as probable against Dallas.
New Orleans’ only lingering injury is right guard Jahri Evans, who has been listed as out for the second straight week due to a knee injury suffered against Tampa Bay. Senio Kelemete will start again in Evans’ place.
