As the New Orleans Saints enter Week 17 to do battle with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, there are quite a few players listed on their first injury report.
Wednesday’s list included four players that didn’t practice. Among those were Terron Armstead (thigh), Hau’oli Kikaha (ankle), Brandon Coleman (neck), and Trey Hendrickson (ankle). Another six Saints were limited, headlined by Michael Thomas (hamstring) and Ryan Ramczyk (thigh). Senio Kelemete (knee), Michael Hoomanawanui (concussion), Josh Hill (shoulder), and Garrett Griffin (foot) rounded out the initial report.
Thomas played through a hamstring injury on Sunday after being a late addition to the team’s injury report. Armstead exited the Falcons game early due to injury along with Kikaha. John Hughes also got injured during the game, which explains why the team brought back Tony McDaniel on Monday. John Kuhn is reportedly being brought back from injured reserve, but no corresponding roster move has been announced.
For the Bucs, they had three players not practicing, which included tight end Cameron Brate (hip/knee), and six players that were limited.
