Found November 09, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
While the Saints, losers of two of the last three, are struggling a bit, they’re also really struggling to get healthy. The Saints will be faced with many game-time calls on Sunday after eight starters missed time this week in practice. Three starters on offense are listed as questionable. Receiver Marques Colston was limited by a knee injury that sidelined him last week. Jimmy Graham hasn’t missed a beat on Sundays but continues to miss time in practice with an existing foot injury and new elbow injury. Guard Jahri Evans (hip) returned last week but was limited again this week. Five defensive starters are questionable for Sunday night’s game. Those five are safeties Roman Harper (knee) and Malcolm Jenkins (knee), linebackers David Hawthorne (toe) Curtis Lofton (hamstring) and DE Cameron Jordan (ankle). Backup defensive ends Tom Johnson (hip) and Tyrunn Walker (knee) are also questionable. Darren Sproles passed concussion tests earlier in the week and was cleared to play. Sproles is probable. Tight end Josh Hill (foot) and safety Kenny Vaccaro (chest) practiced fully and they’re likely to play as well. Jonathan Vilma was placed on the season-ending injured reserve list after just his first game back from IR. The Saints offense has come under a little fire lately for being the Jimmy Graham Show. Getting Marques Colston back and at full strength would be a big boost to an effort of getting more players involved in the offense, but it remains a mystery just how serious the ongoing knee problems of Colston’s really are.     You can find me on Twitter @robsirloin.

New Orleans Saints: 2013 Week 10 NFL Power Rankings (#3)

Last week: 3 (+0) Record: 6-2 The Saints aren’t nearly as good on the road, but I don’t envision them losing at home for the rest of the season, against Dallas, San Francisco, Carolina, and Tampa Bay. On the road, they have to go to Carolina and Seattle and could easily lose both. However, with Aaron Rodgers going down for an extended period of time, the Saints don’t have much...

Brees leads Saints to rout of 'Boys

Nothing like nighttime in New Orleans to inspire a memorable performance from Drew Brees and the Saints. Playing Dallas' beleaguered defense didn't hurt, either. Brees completed 34 of 41 passes for 392 yards and four touchdowns, and the Saints beat the Cowboys 49-17 on Sunday night. The Saints (7-2) had an NFL-record 40 first downs and a franchise-record 625 total yards...

Darren Sproles Proves Speed Does Kills and Wheels Do Win

Back during my rugby playing days I was brave/stupid enough to play in a sevens tournament in the middle of August. If you are not sure what that means--I was a fat guy (but in shape--sort of) looking to play a game populated by really fast dudes, and it was hot as heck out. Not smart (but it was fun). Since it was a game that featured fast, skinny dudes all day long I heard...

Changes coming for Cowboys after big loss to Saints?

If the Jason Garrett era comes to a halt at the end of this season, a 49-17 loss in New Orleans may loom as the watershed moment. There's certainly no shame in losing to Sean Payton and Drew Brees in the Superdome-- unless you play like the Cowboys did Sunday night. It's hard to believe the Cowboys were in this game at one point because all hope vanished as the Saints scored...

Saints Nation: Offensive Player Grades vs. Cowboys

When you break the NFL for most first downs in a game in NFL history, that probably means everyone played pretty well on your offensive unit. The Saints were able to get their 40th first down on a 4th down run to end the game (39 was the previous record). Enough can't be said for a top to bottom complete performance where everyone chipped in. Drew Brees: A+ for the game...
