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.”

"Armstead declined to put a percentage on where he is physically, saying the nature of his injury does not really allow him to do that. He did say he feels “a lot better” than he had previously."

I am going to hold onto hope with his "a lot better" assessment. Fingers crossed
Hope is good. That's what we have to go with for now.

I would like to know what "limited" means actually. Like is it light walkthru or is there actual physical contact repeatedly but not to the extend of full 2 hr practice?

I just don't know what it means.

The TV sports news report is that he is still nursing that hamstring injury. Ramczyk still has a bum shoulder, and Peat is still dealing with his hand/wrist pain. Warford is dealing with a knee as well. The only starter that is Full right now is Unger.

When they gave that report, my heart sank. Yes, we needed that week off to rest up, but the news still isnt great for our O-line. I'm not happy right now. :mecry:
What channel did you see this Bill? Was it a local (New Orleans) station?

No one is trying to bum you out. The initial reports today looked very promising by saying all the players were at practice today. But we later learned that only Unger was a 'full go'. Perhaps others will be listed as full by the weekend. But for sure Armstead will be limited at best. We need to be prepared to win without him in there.

Just FYI, but I’m guessing the TV news report just recapped what the injury report said. All those guys LP with those injuries.

It’s nothing new and nothing different than what the injury report said earlier today when everyone was celebrating.

It was the sports reporter on Ch4 WWL TV. They even interviewed Armstead in the locker room and he didn’t sound positive that he could overcome the injury. But he did say that he would play if he could.

Yea never meant to say people are trying to bum me out. Guess I’m just so ready for this game and want our guys to be out there that I have so many situations running through my head. I do know we usually give the lineman rest once the early practices. But armstead will understandably be LP again.

Well, LP is better than DNP so I guess that's something. We will just have to wait and see what happens closer to game day.

Like you, most of us are trying to read between the lines when these guys are listed as 'limited'. I still want to believe that most of the O-line are just being given as much rest time as possible. I just wish the news was better for TA.

You are so right. But even if these guys are ready to go on Sunday, they need to remain in good shape because we intend to be playing the following week. It's critical for every player to be at the top of his game all the way through Atlanta 53.

Did we ever get what grade level on the tear/sprain Armstead's injury was? Its not a grade 3 because that would have landed him on IR and surgery. How long did they immobilize the arm in a sling? He tried coming back after 4 weeks so I am guessing a grade 1 or low grade 2.

I really hoped that most of those nagging injuries was behind our starters. While I didn't really put too much stock in Armstead being ready to go, I didn't know all the other injuries were as bad. Hopefully 3 more days will show significant progress in the health of our starters.
A week off isn't going to do a ton for their health, and neither will three more days. That said I'm sure most if not all will practice fully on Friday. These guys won't be healthy until well into the offseason.
