Saints injuries: Strief, Bunkley limited

METAIRIE, La. -- New Orleans Saints right tackle Zach Strief (ankle) and defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley (ankle) both practiced on a limited basis Friday, increasing their chances of playing Sunday night against the Carolina Panthers.

Three other Saints were held out of team drills Friday: defensive end Glenn Foster (knee), outside linebacker Keyunta Dawson (calf) and safety Rafael Bush (ankle).

All five are officially listed as questionable, though they guys who practiced would seem to have the better chance -- especially Strief, who also practiced on a limited basis on Thursday. The Saints will have one more practice on Saturday since they pushed back their normal schedule by a day on this short week.
