With the season spiraling downward after 5 consecutive defeats, did the New Orleans Saints get any positive news on today's injury report?

Already without multiple key players who are out for the season due to injury such as starting quarterback Jameis Winston, All-Pro wide receiver Michael Thomas, Pro Bowl, and kicker Wil Lutz, the Saints have been missing a plethora of other starters over the course of their current 5  game losing streak due to injury.

On top of that, Deonte Harris, the team's leading wide receiver, is currently serving a three-game league-imposed suspension as a result of being pulled over for a DUI in Baltimore last summer.

New Orleans may also be without 6-time Pro Bowl defensive end Cam Jordan and two-time Pro Bowl running back Mark Ingram this Sunday. Both tested positive for COVID-19. Jordan has never missed a game in his 10+ year career.

Jordan's 172 consecutive games played is the current longest in the NFL for any players outside of specialists (kickers, punters, long snappers).

Will it end this week?

If Jordan or Ingram are to play this week, they'll need to test negative for COVID-19 twice over a 24 hour period prior to Sunday's game in New York.

On a positive note, All-Pro running back Alvin Kamara was a full participant at practice today after missing the last 4 games with a knee injury.

Quarterback Taysom Hill was also a full participant. He has a partially torn plantar fascia in his foot, as well as a mallet finger injury suffered in last week's loss to the Cowboys.

Overall, the Saints injury report has a few improvements from a week ago, but the team is still extremely beat up.
