Four members of the New Orleans Saints missed Thursday's practice, leaving their status for Sunday's matchup with the rival Atlanta Falcons in doubt.

Running back Darren Sproles (hand), wide receiver and special teams captain Courtney Roby (shoulder), defensive end Junior Galette (ankle), and starting right tackle Zach Strief (groin) all missed practice for the second consecutive day this week.

Saints interim head coach Joe Vitt refused to rule any player out of Sunday's game at this time, but it appears extremely unlikely that any of the 4 will suit up.
