  • Saints' Marcus Davenport: Won't play Week 11

    Davenport (toe) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Nick Underhill of The New Orleans Advocate reports.

    Davenport will miss his third consecutive game as he manages his recovery from a toe injury sustained Oct. 28. Given that Davenport was initially expected to miss around a month, it's no surprise that he's not yet ready to return to the field. As long as the rookie first-round pick is unable to suit up, expect Trey Hendrickson to receive an uptick in defensive snaps behind starters Alex Okafor and Cameron Jordan.

  • Saints' Austin Carr: Practices in full

    Carr (knee) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

    Carr appears to have fully recovered from a knee injury sustained during a Week 10 win over the Bengals. Barring any setbacks, the starting punt returner is on track to suit up against the Eagles on Sunday. With Dez Bryant (Achilles) and Cameron Meredith (knee) both having been placed on injured reserve, Carr is listed as the No. 3 wideout on New Orleans' depth chart and could be in line for a key offensive role going forward. Carr will compete with fellow depth receivers Brandon Marshall and Keith Kirkwood for limited targets.

  • Saints' Marcus Davenport: Still not practicing

    Davenport (toe) did not practice Thursday, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Davenport's lack of participation is no surprise, given that he was initially expected to remain sidelined for about a month after suffering a toe injury Oct. 28. It seems likely that the rookie first-round pick will miss Sunday's game against the Eagles, allowing Trey Hendrickson to receive an increased defensive role behind starters Cameron Jordan and Alex Okafor.

  • Saints' Austin Carr: Limited in practice Wednesday

    Carr (knee) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

    Carr likely picked up the knee injury during the Saints' Week 10 win over the Bengals. With Cameron Meredith (knee) and Dez Bryant (Achilles) both placed on injured reserve ahead of that contest, Carr stepped in as the Saints' No. 3 receiver, playing 22 offensive snaps -- his most since Week 2 -- and finishing with two receptions for 20 yards on two targets. If the slot specialist is unable to give it a go Sunday against the Eagles, it could result in increased roles for Keith Kirkwood or newly-signed veteran Brandon Marshall.

  • Saints' Terron Armstead: Set to miss 3-to-4 weeks

    Armstead was diagnosed with a pectoral injury Wednesday and is expected to be sidelined for 3-to-4 weeks, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Armstead, the Saints' starting left tackle, sustained what was initially labeled a shoulder injury during the Week 10 win over the Bengals. Follow-up examinations revealed the nature and extent of Armstead's setback, which will prompt the Saints to lean on veteran Jermon Bushrod to protect Drew Brees' blind side for multiple games. Armstead previously hadn't missed a snap all season before his early departure against Cincinnati.

  • Saints' Alex Okafor: Half sack in win

    Okafor recorded three tackles (two solo) and 0.5 sacks across 38 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Bengals.

    Through nine games, Okafor has 13 tackles and 1.5 sacks. Those numbers are down from last season but it should be noted that the veteran is now competing with rookie Marcus Davenport (toe) for reps. Davenport (toe) will likely remain out for a few more weeks, which will lead to increased action for Okafor.
