Thompson (foot) is continuing his rehab during the Giants' bye week, Tom Rock of Newsday.com reports. "I'll be around here to continue with my treatment and rehab and stuff," the safety said on Tuesday.
Thompson hasn't taken the field since Week 2 but is nearing a comeback after going through running drills this week. Look for more updates on his status to come next week, as the Giants prepare for their Week 9's divisional tilt with the Eagles.
Breaux (leg) practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, Liz Mathews of ESPN reports.
Breaux's limited participation is a great sign moving forward, as it shows at least a relative amount of comfort with his surgically-repaired left fibula. It is unclear whether he will return to game action in Week 9, but if he is forced to miss another game, expect to see more De'Vante Harris and Ken Crawley at cornerback for the Saints.
Anthony (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Kansas City.
A late-week addition to the injury report, Anthony likely get hurt at practice either Thursday or Friday. It's not much of a loss for the Saints, as last year's second-round selection has only played 55 defensive snaps all year.
Lasco (hamstring ) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, Liz Mathews of ESPN reports.
Lasco was forced to miss Week 7's matchup with the Chiefs, so his participation in practice, albeit limited, is a good sign regarding his status for this Sunday. He has only played 16 offensive snaps this season, however, which keeps him off the radar as a fantasy producer.
The 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.
