Seven members of the New Orleans Saints did not practice today. Six of those players had to sit out due to injury.

Veteran wide receiver Marques Colston sat out for rest, but wide receiver Willie Snead sat out due to a calf injury. Guard Jahri Evans (knee) and left tackle Terron Armstead (knee) were two other members of the offense who didn't suit up.

On the defensive side of the ball, DT John Jenkins (pictured) missed practice due to a concussion, while linebacker Dannell Ellerbe remains out with a hip injury. Safety and special teamer Jamarca Sanford (hip) missed practice as well.

Practicing on a limited basis was linebacker David Hawthorne (thigh) and cornerback Damian Swann (concussion).

Running back Mark Ingram (shoulder) and linebacker Hau'oli Kikaha (ankle) fully practiced.
