Moore did not participate in Wednesday’s practice due to a hamstring injury. He missed the opening-round win against Detroit. The Saints got by because they have plenty of depth at receiver with Marques Colston, Devery Henderson and Robert Meachem. Moore’s absence also led to a little bit of playing time for Adrian Arrington.
Strong safety Roman Harper (ankle) and tight end John Gilmore (toe) also missed Wednesday’s practice. On the bright side, linebacker Jonathan Casillas (knee) practiced on a limited basis after sitting out the Detroit game. Middle linebacker Jonathan Vilma (knee) also participated on a limited basis.
The only other player on the New Orleans injury report is Meachem. He is listed with a knee injury, but participated fully in Wednesday’s practice.
