New Orleans (3-1) hosts Tampa Bay (2-2) in a huge NFC South showdown this Sunday at noon in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

As expected, the Saints will be without quarterback Drew Brees, who continues to recover from thumb surgery. Joining him as officially OUT for the game due to injury is third-year defensive end Trey Hendrickson, who did not practice this week as a result of a neck injury.

No other Saints are listed as questionable, and all other Saints on the practice/injury report were full participants at today's practice, with the one exception of special teamer J.T. Gray, who as limited with a hand injury.

The Buccaneers list wide receiver Breshad Perriman (hamstring) and linebacker Jack Cichy (elbow) OUT for Sunday's contest, as neither were able to practice this week.

Here's a look at the final injury report of the week for both teams.
