3 Saints, including Michael Thomas, officially out for Week 4; Jameis Winston 'doubtful'


LONDON -- Jameis Winston missed a third straight day of practice Friday, but the quarterback is not listed as out for Sunday’s matchup against the Minnesota Vikings. He’s officially “doubtful” as the starting QB tries to recover from back and ankle issues.

“Our plan right now is to have Andy (Dalton) ready to go”, head coach Dennis Allen said. “We’ll see how things go overnight, but Andy will be ready to go, if that’s the direction we go.”
