The New Orleans Saints (10-2) host the San Francisco 49ers (10-2) in a huge matchup this Sunday at noon, with big NFC implications.

With a victory, the Saints will remain in first place in the NFC. With a loss, they'll fall a game behind Seattle and the 49ers.

How is each team looking from a health standpoint heading into the mega matchup?

Seven players for New Orleans and twelve for San Francisco remain on the injury report today, with only a few alterations in regards to their practice participation.

Saints starting left tackle Terron Armstead, who exited the game versus Carolina on November 24th with an ankle injury, and missed last Thursday's game at Atlanta, was limited in practice today.

49ers defensive lineman Arik Armstead, who leads San Francisco in sacks, did not practice today, but it was not due to injury, rather, he was given a veteran off day according to Matt Barrow of The Athletic.
