The New Orleans Saints (8-2) are getting ready to do battle with the Carolina Panthers (5-5) in an another important NFC South showdown. Three players were previously ruled out on the team’s final injury report on Friday, and joining them are the other inactives.
- OT Andrus Peat (forearm)
- FB Zach Line (knee)
- WR/KR Deonte Harris (hamstring)
- DB Marshon Lattimore (hamstring)
- OL Ethan Greenidge
- DE Carl Granderson
- TE Dan Arnold
According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Lattimore is expected to return against the Falcons on Thursday night. Not having Zach Line in the lineup will certainly hurt some, and it’ll be interesting to see how the Saints compensate by not having him. Josh Hill, Taysom Hill, and the recently promoted Jason Vander Laan could all be used there. The team could also go Jumbo and use Will Clapp more with single back sets.
Kickoff is right around the corner for noon. Here’s all you need to know to get ready for today’s broadcast.
