Jeff Duncan
injury report: S Roman Harper (ankle), TE John Gilmore (toe) & WR Lance Moore (hammy), did not practice.

Jeff Duncan
RT : Limited at Wed. practice for N.O were LB Vilma (knee), LB Casillas (knee). WR Meachem (knee) was full participation.

Jeff Duncan
The injury to Roman Harper is a new one and its significant. Don't remember seeing him get injured vs. DET. Harper is key to run D.

Jeff Duncan
Harper is a tough hombre. I'll be surprised if he doesn't play thru the injury. But it could undoubtedly affect him on the field.
