Friday Injury report: Murray and Taysom return to practice, Hendrickson will play Sunday, P Rob ruled out (merged)

Latest Saints News

Drew Brees and Tom Brady, ageless wonders and competitive as ever -- at everything

  • News source: BY LUKE JOHNSON | Staff writer

Some of the most zealous moments in the New Orleans Saints facility have not occurred on the practice fields, but upon the approximately nine-foot long, five-foot wide table that until this season held a place of prominence inside the locker room.

Prior to its removal at some point this season, the pingpong table was where the Saints competitors gathered to assert the dominance of their skill, and perhaps none were more assertive than Drew Brees and his distinct playing style.

“He’s all forehand — all power, no finesse, no spin, nothing,” Terron Armstead said.

Armstead has been in a...

Will Taysom Hill be available on Sunday?

  • News source: Mike Florio
  • Replies: 0
Officially, Saints quarterback Taysom Hill is questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Buccaneers. Unofficially, there’s a concern that Hill won’t be able to play with a knee injury.

Per a league source, some of Hill’s teammates privately are saying that Hill won’t play.

Hill was a limited participant in practice on Friday after missing practice on Wednesday and Thursday.

Hill’s absence, if it happens, would affect the New Orleans offense in a negative way. His versatility, speed, and strength provide the Saints with an important boost.

Without Hill, if that’s indeed what...

Walker: It's Drew Brees vs. Tom Brady, maybe their final showdown. Enjoy the moment while you can.

It's Brees vs. Brady, Round III.

But really, this feels more like Brees vs. Brady, the Final Chapter, one last duel between the ageless wonders who will soon (well, at least I think it will be soon) exchange their No. 9 and No. 12 jerseys for gold blazers in Canton, Ohio.

OK, so we don't know for sure if Sunday's playoff game between the New Orleans Saints and Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome is the last time we'll see Drew Brees and Tom Brady on the same field. But you have to think this is the grand finale.

Neither Brees, who turned 42 on Friday, nor the 43-year-old...

Saints backup C/G Will Clapp tests positive for coronavirus, will miss Sunday's game: report

New Orleans Saints interior offensive lineman Will Clapp has tested positive for coronavirus and will miss Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a source confirmed to The Times-Picayune | New Orleans Advocate.

Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network first reported the news.

According to Pelissero, contract tracing so far has returned no high-risk close contacts. "There's optimism this is isolated," Pelissero reported, though the NFL will continue to monitor the situation.

It is not known at this time if Clapp is experiencing symptoms, but the source said that Clapp is "doing fine"...

Saints’ Will Clapp tests positive for COVID-19

  • News source: Michael David Smith

Just two days before a playoff game, a Saints player has tested positive for COVID-19.

Saints backup center Will Clapp has tested positive, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Clapp doesn’t get much playing time (he didn’t play any offensive snaps, and only four special teams snaps, in the Saints’ wild card win over the Bears), but it’s obviously a concern any time a team has a positive test. When Saints running back Alvin Kamara tested positive for COVID-19, three other running backs had to go on the COVID-19 reserve list as well.

However, Pelissero reports that contact tracing...

Bruce Arians plans no extra “risk it” on Sunday

  • News source: Mike Florio
  • Replies: 0
Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians likes to say, “No risk it, no biscuit.” On Sunday, when he tries to beat the Saints for the first time as head coach in Tampa Bay, there will be no extra “risk it.”

Asked by reporters on Friday whether he’ll coach more aggressively on Sunday night in New Orleans, Arians said, “I don’t think so. You’ll take calculated risks all the time — this game wouldn’t be any different on how it’s going, whether you go for it, kick field goals or whatever you do. All those decisions I think will just be normal.”

That’s perhaps all that will be normal.

“It’s a big game,”...

How did Saints contain Tom Brady and the explosive Bucs offense the first 2 games? Start up front

If you want to get a grasp on how the New Orleans Saints have prevented Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady from hurting them this season, dial up a three-play sequence from the last time these two teams met.

With the Buccaneers near midfield and about three minutes remaining in the third quarter, the Saints sent a four-man rush, and defensive end Trey Hendrickson collapsed left tackle Donovan Smith back into Tom Brady for a sack. The play was negated by a defensive holding penalty. New Orleans sent a four-man rush on the next play, and with Brady evading pressure in his face...

The Friday injury report for the New Orleans Saints revealed that only one player is definitely out for Sunday’s Divisional Round playoff game with Tampa Bay.

Cornerback Patrick Robinson will miss the game with a hamstring injury.

Three players were listed as questionable, including guard Will Clapp (non-injury related), quarterback Taysom Hill (knee) and running back Latavius Murray (quadricep).

In very good news for New Orleans, defensive end Trey Hendrickson was listed at full practice participation Friday, meaning he is set to return to action against the Buccaneers.

Plenty of eyes will be fixed on the Mercedes-Benz Superdome this Sunday in anticipation of what could be the last game between New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees and Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady.

Sunday's game between the two marks Brees' first game as a 42-year-old, while Brady has been 43 years old all season.

One person excited for the matchup is Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre, who retired (for the final time) at the age of 41.

“I think it’s awesome," Favre said on Thursday on the SiriusXM Blitz. "I said this at the start of the year, and even the...

The New Orleans Saints and Tampa Bay Buccaneers have released their Friday injury report which also features game designations

The Saints get their top pass rusher back on Sunday and more good news despite having to rule out CB Patrick Robinson. Meanwhile, the Bucs rule out two piece within their trenches on both sides of the ball. The designations are in, the stage is set, and Sunday’s action grows a bit more clear.

Remember, no designation generally means the player is good to go.

Why it’s important: Seeing Taysom Hill and Latavius Murray back at practice is huge for the Saints. But...

Saints' Taysom Hill, Latavius Murray questionable for Bucs, Trey Hendrickson good to go

After missing two practices in the lead up to Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Saints running back Latavius Murray and quarterback Taysom Hill returned to practice in a limited role on Friday.

Murray (quad) and Hill (knee) were listed as questionable for Sunday's game, while veteran cornerback Patrick Robinson (hamstring) was listed as out.

The other three Saints on this week's injury report all practiced fully on Friday, and weren't given game designations, so defensive end Trey Hendrickson (neck), left tackle Terron Armstead (elbow) and tight end Jared Cook (back) should...
