Saints Versus Falcons Final Injury Report: Akiem Hicks Still Questionable

Today's injury report is short and sweet but everyone on it is questionable. And yet, Junior Galette who said he wasn't 100 percent is not on it.

Sean Payton addressed whether Julio Jones not playing would affect Harry Douglas' reps. Sean said Harry was a great WR in his own right, and while of course it would mean more reps for him, they have to game-plan for him anyway. While Julio Jones is listed as questionable. I wouldn't be surprised to see him try to play Sunday. Too much at stake for both teams in this game.

Also both Sean and Rob Ryan addressed a question about Stanley Jean-Baptiste. Both said they knew he was a developmental player when they drafted him. Said he had played CB for only 2 seasons, after converting from WR. Both have liked what they have seen from the rookie, and consider this year as a learning situation for the young CB. Say he's smart and works hard and expect great things from him in the future. I was a proponent of SBJs from the start, and wanted him in the draft, so I'm admittedly biased.

Sorry the Livestream interview didn't embed again today so I can't include it. I'll add a link to the interviews once the Saints release them, later today.

Junior Galette said he is still having issues with his knee and wouldn't expect to play 60 or so snaps. Expects to be used like last week in a situational pass rush role.
