Saints' injury update

Posted by ESPN.com's Pat Yasinskas

LONDON, England -- The Saints likely will have to shuffle their offensive line Sunday against San Diego.

Starting center Jonathan Goodwin is doubtful because of a knee injury, coach Sean Payton said after Friday's practice. Matt Lehr filled in at center after Goodwin was hurt in a loss to Carolina and remains a possible replacement. But the return of Jamar Nesbit from a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's policy on steroids and related substances gives the Saints other options.

Rookie Carl Nicks has been starting in Nesbit's spot at left guard. Payton said he would consider putting Nesbit at center.

The Saints already have declared running back Reggie Bush, who is back in New Orleans recovering from knee surgery, out. Defensive tackle Brian Young is questionable. Tight end Jeremy Shockey, cornerback Mike McKenzie, defensive end Will Smith and guard Jahri Evans are probable.

Friday's practice was the final preparation for the game. The Saints, who have been staying about 40 minutes outside London, will move into a hotel in the city tonight.
