The Saints had a longer than usual injury report this week and have five players that are out for Monday night’s contest against the Colts.
LB Kiko Alonso, S Vonn Bell, G Andrus Peat along with CBs Patrick Robinson and Johnson Bademosi will not play. Bademosi is a new addition to the injury report. He mainly contributes on special teams and was listed with a foot injury for the first time on Saturday.
Meanwhile, LT Terron Armstead, DE Cam Jordan, TE Jared Cook, LB A.J. Klein, FB Zach Line and C/G Will Clapp all have no injury designation, which signals they are all good to go. Having Line’s blocking ability back is a big boost for the run game. He’s missed the past 3 games due to an issue with his knee.
Drew Brees remained a full participant at practice. There was some concern after the QB’s name showed up with a right elbow issue on Friday.
“We had to list it, because he has a band on his elbow,” explained head coach Sean Payton. “But, I think he’ll be fine.”
