The New Orleans Saints (5-1) are set for a road contest against the Chicago Bears (4-2)  this Sunday at 3:25 pm.

With the signing of a backup running back and tight end yesterday, speculation began about the health Saints star running back Alvin Kamara and tight end Jared Cook.

Kamara is recovering from a high ankle sprain and is dealing with a knee injury after tweaking it last Sunday. He missed practice yesterday, and again today.

Cook missed practice for the second straight day today due to an ankle injury.

Will either play this Sunday against the Bears? Both players missed practice for the second consecutive day is a troubling sign. If both remain DNP on tomorrow's report, it's highly likely they don't play in Sunday afternoon's game.

Here's a rundown of both New Orleans' and Chicago's Thursday injury report.
