Humber (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Titans. The Saints will be without the services of Humber and Dannell Ellerbe (hip) on Sunday, depleting the team's depth at linebacker. Humber has 26 tackles and a sack over eight games this season.
The Saints announced that they have reached a new two-year contract with special teams captain Ramon Humber. Humber has spent the previous five seasons with the Saints. He started six games at linebacker a year ago and totaled 50 tackles, one sack and one pass deflection. Humber had a season-best 12 tackles in a Week 10 game against the 49ers.
The Saints and inside linebacker Ramon Humber have indicated "mutual interest" to get a deal done, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune. With the release of middle linebacker Curtis Lofton, losing Humber would leave "a void in the middle," the paper said. Humber, 27, made 50 tackles in 15 games last season and served as the backup to Lofton and David Hawthorne, who remains under contract.
Four Saints defenders who were on the injury report are active for Sunday night's game against the Packers. They are cornerbacks Patrick Robinson (hamstring) and Keenan Lewis (knee, shoulder), linebacker Ramon Humber (ankle) and nose tackle Brodrick Bunkley (concussion).
Running backs Pierre Thomas (rib/shoulder) and Khiry Robinson (forearm) are only two of four Saints ruled out for the Sunday game against the Packers. The others are linebacker Kyle Knox (ankle) and center Jonathan Goodwin (knee/ankle). Listed as questionable probable are defensive back Keenan Lewis (knee/shoulder), linebacker Ramon Humber (ankle), tight end Jimmy Graham (shoulder) and nose tackle Brodrick Bunkley (concussion). The lone probable is defensive back Patrick Robinson (hamstring).
