New Orleans Saints Injury Report

 The New Orleans Saints practiced outdoors today as they prepare for their divisional road playoff game on Saturday against the San Francisco 49ers. Three key players missed practice today, while two others were limited.

Strong safety Roman Harper, who suffered a minor hamstring injury in last week’s win over the Lions, was not a participant in team drills. Wide Receiver Lance Moore (hamstring), and backup tight end John Gilmore (toe) were non-participants as well. Both Moore and Gilmore have missed the last two games due to injury.

Middle linebacker Jonathan Vilma was limited in practice. This has become the norm since Vilma had a minor surgery on his knee. Sean Payton likes to keep Vilma’s workload light during the week, but expect to see Vilma start on Saturday afternoon. Outside linebacker Jonathan Casillas was limited as well with a knee injury. Casillas has missed the last few games with the injury, so his return to practice is a good sign.

The Saints will battle the 49ers at Candlestick Park this Saturday. Kick-off is set for 3:30.
