With the wealth of talent we have on the O-line the Saints are keeping Terron Armstead out of this matchup against the Buccaneers. Armstead has battled injury it seems for most of the season, and played through it in large part. With a post season to look forward to, the wise decision is to rest their tackle and possibly bring him back in the playoffs.
Also out at DE Trey Hendrickson and TE Michael Hoomanawanui.
With only a limited designation it appears the rest of the players listed will be available. Limited were WR Brandon Coleman, WR Michael Thomas, TE Garrett Griffin, TE Josh Hill, G Senio Kelemente, G Andrus Peat, and T Ryan Ramczyk.
The complete injury report is below including those for Tampa.
