Gabriel (concussion) is expected to be able to return for Week 8's game against the Packers, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports.
Gabriel hasn't practiced this week due to his concussion, which will certainly see him miss Sunday's game against the Chargers. However, coach Dan Quinn anticipates Gabriel's absence to be relatively short-lived, as he should be back available next weekend. While Gabriel's progress through the league protocol will ultimately determine whether that timetable is realized, Justin Hardy and Aldrick Robinson should split his vacated snaps in the meantime.
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.
Breaux (lower leg) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.
This is an unsurprising move, as Breaux has been expected to return to the field around the season's halfway point. While a return could be around the corner for the 26-year-old, he will be sidelined at list one more week.
The Saints have listed Kruger (back) as questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Chiefs.
Kruger missed his first game of the season in last week's win over the Panthers. He appears to be trending toward a true game-time decision Sunday. Kasim Edbali and Darryl Tapp will presumably see an increased workload if Kruger cannot suit up.
Lasco (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Kansas City.
Lasco has only logged 16 offensive snaps all season, but his 100 snaps on special teams are tied for third-most on the Saints. His versatility could eventually lead to more opportunities on offense, as he figures to stick around on the roster.
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.
