Lattimore made three tackles (two solo) and had an interception in Thursday night's 20-17 loss to the Falcons.
Lattimore spent much of the game following around Julio Jones, getting the better of the superstar receiver on a short route where Lattimore stepped in front of Jones to make his third pick of the season. Returning from a two-game absence due to an ankle injury, Lattimore was forced to take a few plays off to catch his breath on the sidelines, but the rookie corner again showed off his playmaking ability. With 39 total tackles and three interceptions on the year, Lattimore may be worth a look in deeper IDP leagues.
Lattimore (ankle) is active for Thursday's game against the Falcons, Josh Katzenstein of The Times-Picayune reports.
Lattimore returns from a two-game absence Thursday night after being limited in practice the entire week. The rookie will be tasked with containing Julio Jones, which is arguably his toughest challenge so far this season. If he is bothered by the ankle injury, expect P.J. Williams to potentially see increased reps on defense.
Lattimore (ankle), who is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Falcons, is expected to play in the contest, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
There was similar rhetoric regarding Lattimore's availability heading into the Saints' Week 13 game against the Panthers, but the cornerback ultimately sat out that contest after he was in too much pain during pregame warmups. Lattimore will presumably go through a rigorous warmup again Thursday as the Saints look to see where he's at on the health front, but since he was able to turn in limited practices Tuesday and Wednesday, the rookie seems less likely to be ruled out this week. He'll likely be tasked with shadowing Julio Jones for most of the evening.
Lattimore (ankle) participated in the portion of Tuesday's practice that was open to the media, Herbie Teope of The Times-Picayune reports.
Lattimore has missed the last two games with the ankle injury, but his participation Tuesday is surely a good sign for the rookie's status heading into a short week. Expect an official update on Lattimore's status to come following the conclusion of Wednesday's practice session.
