Saints Injury Report For Vikings Game
Rookie running back Mark Ingram will miss his second straight game with a turf toe injury. While Ingram has started a few games this season, starting the game at RB for the Saints doesn’t mean you will play more than the other RBs dressed on gameday. Expect Chris Ivory to dress for his fourth game this season as a result.
Linebacker Jonathan Casillas has started several games this year too, as Gregg Williams began a few games with his defense lining up in a 3-4 formation. He will miss his second straight game as well with a knee injury.
Pro-bowl middle linebacker Jonathan Vilma is listed as questionable. Vilma was listed as questionable last week, but played for 4 quarters. His surgically repaired knee has experienced swelling, but yesterday Vilma noted that he plans on playing.
Defensive end Turk McBride has missed the last 3 games with an ankle injury, but returned to practice this week. He is also listed as questionable.
Kickoff tomorrow in Minnesota is set for noon. The Saints will look to win their 6th straight.
