Quarterback Drew Brees (thumb) continues to remain out of Saints practice as he recovers from surgery. Also, not taking part in Wednesday’s workout were DE Trey Hendrickson (neck) and S J.T. Gray. Both of those guys left the field in Sunday’s win against the Dallas Cowboys and did not return to action.
5 other players were limited for the Black & Gold:
WR Tre'Quan Smith (ankle)
G Will Clapp (hand)
S Vonn Bell (back)
DE Cameron Jordan (calf)
G Andrus Peat (thigh)
The good news is that there is progress for Smith who had not been practicing after getting hurt in week 2. His return to the lineup would be a welcome addition to a receiving corps that hasn’t doing much outside of stud Michael Thomas.
For Tampa, their first injury report of the week revealed 6 Bucs players did not practice:
LB Shaquil Barrett (groin)
LB Jack Cichy (elbow)
T Demar Dotson (calf)
WR Chris Godwin (hip)
C Ryan Jensen (back)
WR Breshad Perriman (hamstring)
Former LSU Tiger and 5th overall pick in this year’s draft LB Devin White was limited with a knee issue. CB Jamel Dean (ankle) was also limited for Tampa Bay.
