Checking in on Saints' injuries

Just like their "Monday Night Football" opponent, the Atlanta Falcons, the New Orleans Saints aren’t required to put out the traditional Friday injury report that includes player statuses until Saturday.

But I just got the Saints’ post-practice injury report for Friday and it’s fairly lengthy. There are 12 players on the list, but the good news is that eight of them fully participated in Friday’s practice. Those eight are linebacker Danny Clark (hamstring), defensive tackle Sedrick Ellis (wrist), cornerback Jabari Greer (knee), defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove (knee), receiver Robert Meachem (toe), linebacker Kawika Mitchell (hamstring), receiver Courtney Roby (concussion) and linebacker Jonathan Vilma (quadriceps).

Defensive tackle Remi Ayodele (ankle), offensive tackle Charles Brown (back) and running back Chris Ivory (hamstring) each participated on a limited basis. Tight end David Thomas (knee) did not participate.
