Saints Thursday Injury Report: Questions Loom Over New Year’s Contest
The New Orleans Saints continue to prepare for their New Year's Day matchup with the powerhouse Philadelphia Eagles, looking to secure a big road upset and keep their playoff hopes alive.
The team has struggled a lot with injuries over the last few weeks, particularly on the defense and in the wide receiver room, but things are slowly starting to come back to normal in a few regards. However, several key players like Chris Olave, Marshon Lattimore, and Pete Werner remain limited, leaving them questionable for Sunday's contest.
However, there is some concern as Alvin Kamara was again not at today's practice due to a personal reason. Whatever situation AK is going through, it's keeping him out of practice, which concerns a lot of Saints fans.
It also appears that the Saints will not be lucky enough to face off against Eagles backup QB Gardner Minshew, and will instead be facing a recovering Jalen Hurts, who did practice today.
For the Saints, 10 players appeared on Thursday's Injury Report.
Of those 10 players, 4 were absent or did not participate.
