12/01/15LBDannell EllerbeHipQUESTIONABLEEllerbe (hip) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Ramon Humber and Hau'oli Kikaha will likely flank Stephone Anthony, who is easily the team's strongest IDP option at linebacker. Kikaha does have four sacks and three forced fumbles, but he's averaging just over four tackles per game. Once healthy, Ellerbe could perhaps re-enter the IDP conversation, though it seems more likely he'll have a part-time role.

12/01/15LBDavid HawthorneThighQUESTIONABLEHawthorne did not record a tackle in Thursday's game against the Falcons.

With the return of Dannell Ellerbe to the Saints' lineup, Hawthorne's playing time has dwindled, as he played only three snaps against the Falcons, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune. So long as Ellerbe is healthy, Hawthorne is not worth owning in IDP leagues.
