The New Orleans Saints did not practice on Wednesday after their Monday Night Football win against the Seattle Seahawks, but did estimate their injury report ahead of this weekend’s matchup.

No surprises for the Saints here. LG Andrus Peat is the only addition from last week. He will miss the rest of the season with a pec injury. RB Dwayne Washington, WR Deonte Harris, QB/Offensive Weapon Taysom Hill, and DE Payton Turner all did not appear in Monday’s win in Seattle. We’ll see if their participation changes as the week continues on. Getting Harris and/or Hill back would be huge for New Orleans who struggled to move the ball outside of Alvin Kamara’s hands in the last game.

Tampa Bay continues to have issues keeping their secondary healthy with starters Carlton Davis and Sean Murphy-Bunting on injured reserve, the Bucs now add last week’s starter Dee Delaney to the injury report this week. However, Jamel Dean and Richard Sherman did return (Sherman in a limited capacity.) Three major DNPs open the week for the Bucs as well with DT Ndamukong Suh, DE Jason Pierre-Paul, and WR Antonio Brown all out on Wednesday’s practice.

Some major names listed as limited as well, but are very unlikely to trend to miss this game unless they downgrade later in the week.

One roster move to follow this week, the reunion between the New Orleans Saints and RB Mark Ingram. He’s up to date on health and safety protocols coming from another organization and knows the Saints’ zone-heavy run scheme.
