Injury update on the Saints
By Pat Yasinskas
The New Orleans Saints had to issue their first injury report of the season Monday for Thursday night’s game in Green Bay.
The report is surprisingly light. Only three players sat out Monday’s practice. Receivers Lance Moore (groin) and Adrian Arrington (knee) did not participate. Neither did kicker Garrett Hartely (hip).
The absence of Hartley was expected. He injured the hip in the third preseason game and it looks like he could miss multiple games. That’s why the Saints brought in veteran John Kasay.
The Saints also listed defensive tackle Tom Johnson (calf) as limited in practice.
Green Bay’s injury report also was light. Cornerback Davon House (ankle) and linebacker Frank Zombo (shoulder) were the only players who did not participate.
Tight end Jermichael Finley (ankle) and defensive end Mike Neal (knee) were limited in practice.
