Saints vs Falcons Injury Report
Two key members of the New Orleans Saints were unable to practice both Tuesday and Wednesday. Four-time All-Pro guard Jahri Evans (ankle) and running back Darren Sproles (ankle, knee) both missed practice this week, making it questionable as to whether they will play tomorrow night against the Atlanta Falcons.
Also listed as “questionable” for New Orleans are the following: cornerback Chris Carr (hip/back/hamstring), cornerback Rod Sweeting (hip), safety Kenny Vaccaro (concussion), tight end Ben Watson (concussion) defensive tackle Akiem Hicks (back), guard Ben Grubbs (neck), and defensive end Tyrunn Walker (knee).
Both Carr and Sweeting are likely to see playing time if they’re able to suit up. New Orleans lost starting cornerback Jabari Greer for the season after he tore his ACL in Sunday’s win over the San Francisco 49ers. Second-year pro Corey White will start in Greer’s place.
Atlanta Falcons defensive end Malliciah Goodman (calf) has been ruled OUT, while four other Falcons are listed as questionable, including tight end Tony Gonzalez (toe). Joining Gonzalez on the list is safety Zeke Motta (hand), defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux (tricep), and backup quarterback Dominique Davis (knee).
New Orleans (8-2) defeated Atlanta (2-8) in Week 1 of the season. Kickoff from the Georgia Dome tomorrow night is set for 7:25pm. Pregame here on 97.3 The Dawg begins at 6:30pm.
