NFC South evening roundup: Injury updates

Posted by ESPN.com's Pat Yasinskas


With Roddy White (back) missing his second-straight day of practice, you have to be a little concerned if the injury could keep him out Sunday. But coach Mike Smith said White probably will practice Friday.


So it now turns out the "sprained'' foot that sidelined Joey Galloway for much of the season was actually a broken foot -- at least according to Galloway. Kind of interesting the wide receiver, who has lost his starting job to Antonio Bryant, waited until now to reveal that fact. Also interesting that there were some earlier implications from inside the organization that Galloway might have been milking the injury.

Also, tight end Alex Smith sat out another practice, so expect to continue seeing a lot of Jerramy Stevens and John Gilmore.


The team sent out its injury report this afternoon. It was blank (everyone practiced), which is about the best news you can have this time of year.


Deuce McAllister (knee) didn't practice, but Reggie Bush (knee) did on a limited basis. But it still is anyone's guess who we'll see in the New Orleans backfield Monday night.
