METAIRIE, La. – The New Orleans Saints got slightly healthier during the bye week, but four players were still missing from Wednesday’s practice.
Cornerbacks Keenan Lewis (hip/knee) and Damian Swann (concussion) and linebackers Dannell Ellerbe (hip) and David Hawthorne (thigh) did not participate Wednesday, leaving their status in doubt for Sunday’s game at the Houston Texans.
It’s unclear if Ingram’s shoulder injury is the same issue that limited him during the Week 10 loss at Washington. But he was able to finish that game and had an extra bye week to recover, so the injury shouldn’t be a great concern at this point.
