The New Orleans will be without starting middle linebacker Jonathan Vilma, who was ruled out for the game against the Atlanta Falcons earlier with a knee injury. Defensive end Turk McBride will also miss the game dealing with an ankle injury.
A few key offensive players could be missing from the Saints line up as well. Wide receiver Lance Moore has missed the last two days of practice dealing with a hamstring injury and is officially listed as questionable for Sunday. Running back Chris Ivory is also listed as questionable with a hamstring injury. Ivory has played in only two games this season, but the Saints running back by committee could use another back with Mark Ingram getting banged up this season. Cornerback Patrick Robinson is also listed as questionable with an abdominal injury.
The Saints had three other players listed as probable for the game, RB Mark Ingram (heel), TE John Gilmore (neck), and CB Tracy Porter (neck/chest).
