Saints' Josh Hill: Limited showing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill (shoulder) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Hill leads all Saints tight ends in offensive snap count in 2017, earning 52.1 percent versus 48.3 percent for Michael Hoomanawanui and 31.7 percent for Coby Fleener. Because Fleener is out for the season due to a concussion, Hill is the best bet to get in the act weekly as a receiver. However, he's posted more than 20 yards in a given game twice in 13 games this season, so he doesn't hold much sway in the fantasy realm.

Saints' Ted Ginn: Misses practice with rib injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ginn was held out of Wednesday's practice due to a rib injury, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Ginn has had a handful of spectacular efforts this season, namely a seven-catch, 141-yard performance at Green Bay in Week 7. Lately, though, his name hasn't been called much, as evidenced by four receptions (on five targets) for 37 yards over the last two games. The rib issue may have hindered Ginn, but his share of the snap count was in line with his season-long workload. Fortunately for the veteran wideout, he has a pair of practices to put any questions about his health to rest.

Saints' Alvin Kamara: Full practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kamara (concussion) practiced fully Wednesday, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

After suffering a concussion last Thursday in Atlanta, Kamara first tweeted and then outright stated he wouldn't miss any time, per Katzenstein. An uninhibited session Wednesday is a step in the right direction, but such a development doesn't mean Kamara has emerged from the protocol for head injuries. Until he gains clearance from an independent neurologist, he won't be allowed to suit up Sunday versus the Jets. That said, Kamara has plenty of time to pass this final hurdle.

Saints' George Johnson: Picked up by New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints and Johnson agreed to a contract Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Johnson was let go by the Lions on Nov. 24 after suiting up in four games with the club. The veteran is expected to provide depth along the Saints' defensive line.

Saints' Alvin Kamara: Expects to return this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kamara (concussion) said Monday that he expects to return for Sunday's game against the Jets, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

After suffering a concussion on the opening drive of Thursday's 20-17 loss to Atlanta, the rookie remains optimistic that a long week will allow him to avoid any further missed time. He still needs to make his way through the NFL's concussion protocol, and there may not be another update until Wednesday when the Saints release their first injury report of the week. Kamara will have a suboptimal matchup if he returns, facing a Jets defense that's been torched by wideouts and tight ends but has done a surprisingly nice job of containing running backs. While he's mostly benefited from favorable matchups during his incredible run of production, Kamara did parlay 14 touches into 126 yards and two touchdowns Week 13 against the Panthers.
