Saints vs Buccaneers Thursday Injury Report
Coming off their first shutout loss in over 20 years last Sunday, the New Orleans Saints could use some positive news.
At 4-8, the Saints are in last place in the NFC South, but also only one and a half games out of first place in their putrid division.
The team at the top of the division is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who sport a losing record of 5-6.
New Orleans travels to Tampa Bay for a Monday night matchup this week, before the Saints enter a bye week late in the season.
A win Monday night would keep the Saints slim division title hopes alive.
Player availability will play a huge role in the game.
The first injury report of the week was released this afternoon.
On a positive note, Pro Bowl cornerback Marshon Lattimore was a limited participant. The coaching staff said last week he was close to returning, and his continued presence on the practice field is welcome.
Unfortunately, the Saints injury report is a long one, with 15 players being listed.
A number of key players for both teams were unable to practice today, leaving their status for Monday night's matchup up in the air at this point.
Here is a full rundown of the Thursday injury/practice report for both clubs.
