We are just 3 days away from kickoff in the Superdome.  The Saints continue to gear up for their NFC divisional round match-up against the defending Super Bowl champions and Eagles.  Defensive end Alex Okafor suffered a knee injury in the regular season finale and was limited in Wednesday's practice.  He was back to a full-go today which is obliviously a great sign he'll be ready to take on Philadelphia.  

Meanwhile, most of the offensive line remains limited.  T Jermon Bushrod (pectoral), T Jermon Bushrod (hamstring), T Ryan Ramczyk (shoulder), G LArry Warford (knee) and G Andrus Peat (hand) status did not change from yesterday. There was a new addition on the list for the Saints.  WR Simmie Cobbs has a knee issue and was limited.  

Over on the Eagles side:

DE Michael Bennett (foot) DNP

QB Carson Wentz (back) DNP

LB D.J. Alexander (hamstring) LP

CB Sidney Jones (hamstring) LP

T Jason Peters (quadricep) LP

WR Golden Tate (knee) LP

WR Mike Wallace (ankle) LP

WR Alshon Jeffrey (ribs) LP
