Saints injury update: OT a huge concern for New Orleans

Christian Petersen

New Orleans was down to its fourth-string OT in the loss to the 49ers and, with a short week coming up, may not have time to get everyone healthy before Thursday night's game with the Falcons.

A Thursday night game is never a good thing for a team with as many injury concerns as the Saints, who could be headed into Atlanta with smoke and mirrors holding together their offensive line.

Both Bryce Harris and Charles Brown were injured during the loss to the 49ers and neither has practiced so far this week, which means that Drew Brees could be protected by William Robinson, the fourth different OT the Saints have used this year.

The good news is Zach Strief, after missing the last three games, was able to be a limited participant in practice, so New Orleans may be able to run him out on Thursday.
