The final pre-Monday round of injury reports is out for the Fancy Sponsor Name Superdome showdown between the Atlanta Falcons and New Orleans Saints. The biggest development: running back Mark Ingram is still doubtful after not practicing all week.
Wide receiver Lance Moore is questionable and missed the week's practice, while Falcons cornerback Brent Grimes is questionable after getting limited reps during Atlanta's extended week. The Falcons seem confident Grimes will play, despite his official status.
Grimes is a critical participant, especially with nickel back Kelvin Hayden doubtful. He might be the team's best defender, and has proved to be a nuisance for Drew Brees in the past. Mike Peterson may need to start at linebacker for Stephen Nicholas.
