Saints vs Giants, Official Injury Report
Less than 48 hours before Sunday's kickoff between the New Orleans Saints and New York Giants, both squads released their official injury report.
The Saints will be thin at linebacker, as David Hawthorne has officially been ruled out, and linebacker Dannell Ellerbe is doubtful. Yesterday, the Saints signed Jo-Lonn Dunbar to bring experience and depth at the position, signaling the likelihood of today's announcement on the status of Hawthorne and Ellerbe.
Also OUT is rookie offensive tackle Andrus Peat (knee), who sprained his MCL in a week 6 win over the Atlanta Falcons.
Cornerback Keenan Lewis is questionable, and coach Sean Payton noted today that Lewis will be a game-time decision. Lewis underwent hip surgery late in preseason, and has dealt with several issues resulting from it the last few weeks. When he has played, he's been limited.
The following six Saints are probable: wide receiver Marques Colston, offensive tackle Terron Armstead, guard Jahri Evans, guard Mike McGlynn, defensive tackle Kevin Williams, and cornerback Damian Swann.
For the Giants, wide receiver Victor Cruz (calf), linebacker J.T. Thomas (ankle), cornerback Prince Amukamara (pectoral) and defensive end Owa Odighizuwa (hamstring) are all listed as OUT.
Kickoff from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Sunday is set for noon.
