New Orleans Saints guard Jahri Evans and defensive tackle will miss the game vs. the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this Sunday. But everyone else listed on the injury report is probable and likely to play.

That includes wide receivers Brandin Cooks, who was going through concussion protocol earlier this week, and Willie Snead, who missed last week's game against the Panthers. Linebacker Dannell Ellerbe also looks like he might be ready to return after missing quite a few weeks. That should help the Saints defense immensely.

Below is the final official injury report for the Saints.
