Wildcard Playoff Matchup Panthers at Saints Thursday Injury Report

New, comments

Threes the charm. And a tough challenge.

NFL: Atlanta Falcons at New Orleans Saints
Cause it never gets old.
Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

The Saints head into the third battle against the Panthers relatively healthy. If you can call a team with 19 players on IR, including 8 starters healthy. The injury bug has been a two edged sword this year though. Some rookies who might not have seen extensive playing time were forced into starting mode and it’s proved to be the difference this year in my opinion.

Only two players are listed as limited in today’s Injury report, DE Trey Hendrickson and T Terron Armstead. Listed as full were TE Josh Hill, CB Justin Hardee, TE Michael Hoomanawanui (Hooman), G Senio Kelemente, and WR Michael Thomas.

Key difference in this weeks matchup is the Saints are likely to face the Panthers TE Greg Olsen.

Complete report below including the Panthers players.
