The New Orleans Saints take two steps forward and one step back on the injury front.
On the offensive line, both Terron Armstead and Erik McCoy are both returning for Monday Night Football against the Seattle Seahawks. However, WR/KR Deonte Harris, QB/WR/TE/ST Taysom Hill, and RB/ST Dwayne Washington have all been ruled out. Rookie defensive end Payton Turner has also been ruled out with a calf injury.
You might be looking for names like Kwon Alexander, Tre’Quan Smith, Marcus Davenport, and Wil Lutz, but this quartet, while all have been designated to return from injured reserve, have yet to be activated. That means their practice status is not reported on the injury report just yet. Reports are all four practiced at least in a limited capacity.
Michael Thomas, on the other hand, is still on the Physically Unable to Perform (“PUP”) list. He is not expected to return to practice for another week or two.
For the Seahawks, back-up running back Alex Collins is questionable for Monday night’s game, and WR DK Metcalf appears ready to go.
