Time is no longer on Saints’ LT Terron Armstead’s side. ‘If I can play, I’m playing’

By Luke Johnson, NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune

With the biggest game of the New Orleans Saints’ season looming, there was a welcome sight on the practice field Wednesday (Jan. 9).

Occupying his usual spot at the back of the offensive linemen’s stretch line was No. 72, high fiving teammates as they jogged past. Left tackle Terron Armstead was back with his teammates.

Now all that remains to be seen is if he will be out there Sunday (Jan. 13) afternoon against the Philadelphia Eagles and their fierce pass rush.

“That’s what I’m working toward, that’s the goal, that’s been the goal, trying to get to feeling as best as I possibly can to go out and do my job,” Armstead said. “If I can do that, if I feel like I can function and produce, I’ll play for sure.”

To me, doesn't sound like he will play for sure, despite the limited practice. Sounds like they'll put him in and pull him if he can't play well, like in the PIT game.

I've seen the idea floated around here but I really wish they'd let him heal one more week until the NFCCG. I know it's not a guarantee to make it there, but it is the game (either Rams or Cowgirls) that he would be most needed/valuable.

"Ultimately, he said it is not a matter of a decision that needs to be made about whether he will or will not play. It is about whether he is able.

'It’s not a choice,' Armstead said. 'If I can play, I’m playing.'”
I felt really good till I read that.

Has it been determined that he has a tear?

If so, I think it comes down to pain management and strength. If he loses strength but can endure the pain, he’s not helping. If he’s got strength but cannot endure the pain, he’s not helping.

If it’s only a strain, he should be okay with a sling.
