New, comments

It appears there's a slight possibility that Saints fans might get their first glimpse of C.J. Spiller in game action this weekend. Jairus Byrd? Not so much...

Saints running back C.J. Spiller is listed as questionable on the injury report for this Sunday's matchup vs. the Buccaneers. So there's reason for fans to be a little optimistic. Other than that, it's the usual names on the injury report. Keenan Lewis, Dannell Ellerbe, and Jairus Byrd will not play.

The most notable names for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on this week's injury report are wide receiver Mike Evans and cornerback Mike Jenkins. Both are questionable to play Sunday in the Saints home opener.
