The Detroit Lions have a pretty difficult task ahead of them this weekend as they travel south to take on the New Orleans Saints in an NFC Wildcard match-up for the first round of the NFL Playoffs. The Saints are entering the game a bit banged up, but none of their high profile guys are expected to miss Saturday's game.
Head coach Sean Payton declined to elaborate on the injury report, according to NOLA.com, but the following players were listed:
New Orleans Saints receiver Lance Moore (hamstring), tight end John Gilmore (toe) and linebacker Jonathan Casillas (knee) did not participate in the team portion of practice Wednesday. But the rest of the team's injury report looks promising.
Linebacker Jonathan Vilma (knee) participated on a limited basis. Safeties Malcolm Jenkins (neck) and Jonathon Amaya (shoulder) and receiver Robert Meachem (knee) fully participated.
More information should come out on Thursday, but as of now, that's about it as far as the Saints are concerned.
