    09/25/16DTSharrif FloydKNEEOUTFloyd (knee) is expected to miss about six weeks after injuring his miniscus, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

    Floyd had surgery to trim his miniscus this week. Look for Shamar Stephen and Tom Johnson to see some extra time for the next month or so as Floyd recovers.

    09/25/16TEMyCole PruittKNEEQUESTIONABLEPruitt (knee) is inactive for Sunday's Week 3 matchup with the Panthers, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Pruitt was limited during practice all week, and after evaluating him Sunday morning, team trainers evidently determined that the tight end wasn't ready to go. Since he's the No. 3 option on the depth chart behind Kyle Rudolph and Rhett Ellison, Pruitt won't see many snaps even once he returns to active status.

    09/07/16DBMichael GriffinBackQUESTIONABLEGriffin (back) reached an injury settlement with the Vikings on Wednesday, Anthony DiMoro of the Huffington Post reports.

    The agreement removes Griffin from the Vikings' injured reserve list. When healthy, he'll be free to sign with another organization.

    (Updated 09/07/2016)
    09/02/16DLIsame FacianeKneeQUESTIONABLEThe Vikings signed nine players to their practice squad: running back Joe Banyard, wideouts Kain Colter and Donte Foster, defensive tackle Isame Faciane, tight end Chase Ford, cornerback Kendall James, center Zac Kerin, offensive tackle Mike Remmers and defensive end Justin Trattou.
    08/24/16DBTre RobersonHandQUESTIONABLERoberson was released by the Vikings.

    He suffered a broken bone in his right hand during training camp which hurt his chances to make the final roster.

    07/29/16QBTaylor HeinickeAnkleOUTHenicke will start the regular season on the non-football injury list, Andrew Krammer of the Star Tribune reports.

    Heinicke was originally given a timetable of three months for a return when he had surgery to repair a torn tendon in his ankle. Placement on the NFI list to start the season means that he'll miss at least the first six games, which he likely would've anyway.

    09/26/16CBDelvin BreauxFIBULAOUTBreaux (lower leg) has been ruled out for Week 3.

    Breaux suffered a broken fibula against the Raiders in Week 2 and isn't expected back until Week 8.

    09/26/16LBDannell EllerbeQUADRICEPSQUESTIONABLEEllerbe (quadriceps =) is questionable to play in Week 3.

    Ellerbe hasn't played in either of the Saints' first two games of the season due to a lingering quad injury. If he's unable to play yet again, Craig Robertson figures to be in line for another game of extensive action.

    (Updated 09/24/2016)
    09/26/16TEJosh HillANKLEQUESTIONABLEHill (ankle) is questionable to play on Monday night.

    Hill suffered a high-ankle sprain in the Saints' season opener and was unable to play in Week 2. His status will be confirmed prior to kickoff.

    (Updated 09/24/2016)
    09/26/16DECameron JordanKNEEQUESTIONABLEJordan (knee) is questionable to play on Sunday.

    Jordan was a surprise addition to the injury report this week, but the specifics of his injury remain vague. Bobby Richardson may get the start at defensive end if Jordan is ruled out.

    (Updated 09/24/2016)
    09/26/16WRWillie SneadTOEQUESTIONABLESnead (toe) is officially listed as questionable for Week 3.

    Snead logged a limited practice session on Saturday after failing to participate on both Thursday and Friday. If he's ultimately cleared to play, a matchup against a Falcons defense that has allowed a league-worst 74 percent completion rate to opposing QBs will await.

    (Updated 09/24/2016)
    09/26/16SKenny VaccaroANKLEQUESTIONABLEVaccaro (ankle) did not practice on Thursday.

    Vaccaro seemed healthy in Week 2's loss to the Giants, as he recorded nine tackles, but has since gone down with an ankle injury. The specifics are still unknown, but look for more information to be released as Sunday approaches. If the safety is ultimately ruled out, look for veteran Roman Harper to start.

    08/24/16WRVincent BrownCalfQUESTIONABLEThe Saints released Brown (calf) with an injury settlement Thursday, removing him from injured reserve, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Brown joined the Saints in May, adding a veteran presence to a receiving corps lacking in experience. However, he failed his pre-training camp physical due to a strained calf, which will bring his brief tenure in New Orleans to a close. The severity of the injury will likely determine when he receives a chance with another organization.
