Twenty four hours makes a difference for the New Orleans Saints injury report.

Starting left tackle Terron Armstead (shoulder) and starting wide receiver Michael Thomas (knee) were both limited participants in practice today, one day after being listed as DNP (did not practice).

It may not seem like much, but it's a positive sign they're likely to play Sunday, judging by how Sean Payton and the Saints traditionally fill out their practice injury reports during the week.
