Saints’ Willie Snead, Kenny Vaccaro expected to miss game against Falcons

New, comments

More bad news for the black and gold, as they’ll be without more starters for tonight’s game.

According to reports by ESPN’s Britt McHenry and NFL Insider Rand Getlin, the New Orleans Saints will be without starting wide receiver Willie Snead (toe) and safety Kenny Vaccaro (ankle) when they take on the Atlanta Falcons.

Both Snead and Vaccaro were optimistic on their chances of playing earlier this week, but it appears that they won’t be available. The Saints have been very banged up, as six players were listed as questionable on Saturday’s final injury report. The team will already be without Terron Armstead (knee) and Delvin Breaux (fibula).

Expect to see more Brandon Coleman and Tommylee Lewis in Snead’s absence, and Roman Harper filling in for Vaccaro. This also means only three more inactives are needed for tonight’s game.

The Saints have a tremendous opportunity tonight with a win, and their early bye week in Week 5 figures to be a blessing in disguise.
