Saints injuries: Everyone is healthy

METAIRIE, La. – For the second straight day, everyone fully participated in practice for the New Orleans Saints. And everyone on the injury list is officially listed as probable for Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

That list includes quarterback Drew Brees (bruised right knee), receiver Marques Colston (back), guard Jahri Evans (knee), offensive tackle Terron Armstead (shoulder), running back Pierre Thomas (eye), tight end Josh Hill (hamstring), safety Rafael Bush (ankle), linebacker Keyunta Dawson (calf) and linebacker Kevin Reddick (shoulder).

Saints coach Sean Payton described Brees as “fine” Thursday and said the team just felt like it would be prudent to limit his snaps on Wednesday since it was still early in the week. Apparently that’s the same approach the Saints took with several veteran players on Wednesday -- but none of the starters on the list should be limited by injury at all.
