08/10/18DLMitchell LoewenUndisclosedQUESTIONABLELoewen is expected to miss a few days of practice while nursing a minor undisclosed injury, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Loewen sustained the injury in Thursday's preseason-opening victory over the Jaguars. The issue does not sound serious, so expect him to return as soon as possible in order to continue competing for a depth role on the Saints' defensive line.

08/10/18DBP.J. WilliamsRibsQUESTIONABLEWilliams suffered a bruised rib in Thursday's preseason game against the Jaguars and is expected to be out for one week, Herbie Teope of NFL.com reports.

Williams was forced to leave Thursday's contest and did not return. With Williams given a recovery timetable of just one week, it doesn't appear that the rib injury is anything too serious, although he remains at risk of missing Friday's matchup with the Cardinals.

08/06/18WRCameron MeredithKneeQUESTIONABLEMeredith (knee) was absent from Monday's practice, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

Meredith was cleared for full-team contact drills at the start of training camp, but the former Bear did not play in Thursday's preseason opener against the Jaguars, nor did he participate in the Saints' last three practices. Head coach Sean Payton warned that Meredith would have his workload limited during camp and there has been no news of a setback in his recovery from a torn MCL and ACL suffered last preseason, but his continued absence is disconcerting for fantasy owners who tabbed him as a sleeper. Nevertheless, there's nearly three weeks of practice remaining before Week 1, so it's far too early to panic.

08/02/18DLMarcus DavenportUndisclosedQUESTIONABLEDavenport missed Wednesday's practice due to an undisclosed injury but was seen working on the sidelines Thursday, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

It's unclear exactly what is bothering Davenport, but he was at least able to do some individual work on the side Thursday. The rookie defensive end has reportedly been going through some growing pains in his first training camp, and Davenport will need to get healthy and back on the field as soon as possible in order to prove his worth as the 14th overall pick.

05/08/18RBMark IngramSuspensionSUSPENDIngram (suspension) was seen participating in the Saints' mandatory minicamp Tuesday, Nick Underhill of The Baton Rouge Advocate reports.

As expected after not participating in OTAs, Ingram was back on the practice field for the start of minicamp despite having to serve a four-game suspension at the start of the regular season. Ingram is expected to cede the role of No. 1 running back to second-year star Alvin Kamara until he is reinstated by the league for Week 5.

04/20/18WRJosh HuffSuspensionSUSPENDThe NFL suspended Huff for two games for a violation of the league's substance abuse policy, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports.

Since entering the NFL as a third-round pick in 2014, Huff has been unable to find a foothold and last took the field Week 16 of the 2016 season. Notably, he was arrested in November of that year for DUI and possession of marijuana, which precipitated his release from the Eagles. Huff has a reserve/future contract from the Saints in his back pocket, which will allow him to take part in the offseason program and during the preseason. In order to land on the 53-man roster, post-suspension, he may have to impress at every stage in advance of the regular season.

02/08/18DLTony McDanielLegQUESTIONABLEMcDaniel was released by the Saints on Wednesday, Herbie Teope of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

McDaniel was set to become an unrestricted free agent in March anyway, so it seems that New Orleans has simply given him assurance that the team doesn't plan on bringing him back for another season. The 33-year-old will thus get a head start in finding a new home for the 2018 campaign, assuming he wants to continue playing.

02/05/18LBHau'oli KikahaAnkleQUESTIONABLEKikaha (knee) has been medically cleared for training camp, Amos Morale III of NOLA.com reports.

Kikaha tore his ACL during OTAs over a year ago, and he's finally recovered. The former second-round pick participated in team drills Thursday without any signs of his knee slowing him down and noted that he "feels great physically." Barring any setbacks, he projects to start at defensive end in Week 1.

02/05/18DLDevaroe LawrenceUndisclosedQUESTIONABLEThe Saints placed Lawrence (undisclosed) on injured reserve Saturday, Herbie Teope of The Time-Picayune reports.

Lawrence began training camp on the non-football injury list, and will now likely miss the rest of the season. It remains unclear what the issue is, but the Auburn product did undergo season-ending knee surgery in December of last year.
