According to multiple reports on Friday afternoon, New Orleans Saints left tackle Terron Armstead plans to play on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks. Armstead told reporters that playing beat up is a way of life in the NFL.

The Seahawks come in tied for third in the NFL with their 20.0 team sacks, and the left side of the Saints offensive line was all but question marks earlier this week with injuries to Terron Armstead and Andrus Peat.

It was just on Thursday that head coach Sean Payton said that Armstead was day-to-day. Clearly, it looks like Armstead will once again tough things out. It will be interesting to see what Seahawks defensive coordinator Kris Richard throws at Drew Brees and company when these two meet. His defense is allowing just 14.0 points per game (2nd in NFL).

Meanwhile, left guard Andrus Peat has been limited in practice. We should get the final injury report of Week 8 later this evening.
