Three Injured Saints Miss Practice
Three members of the New Orleans Saints missed Wednesday’s practice due to injury. All three play on the defensive side of the football. Two of the three are linebackers. Both play on the weakside.
Linebackers Jonathan Casillas (neck) and David Hawthorne (hamstring) both sat out today. Both play weakside linebacker, with Hawthorne starting and Casillas being his primary backup. Will Herring could get the start on the weakside Sunday in Green Bay if both Casillas and Hawthorne continue to miss time.
Joining the LBs on the injury report is defensive end Turk McBride (ankle). He hasn’t practiced in two and a half weeks.
The Saints (0-3) are on the road this Sunday to take on the Green Bay Packers (1-2). Kickoff is set for 3:25.
