“The team placed S Marcus Williams on the COVID-19 list,” he added.
The Saints need all the help they can get to keep their very slim playoff hopes alive. On Monday night, New Orleans was down to fourth-string QB Ian Book to try to lead the shorthanded offense. The team ended up losing to the Dolphins 20-3.
It’s been an unfortunate year for the Saints. But the NFL’s amended COVID-19 policy has really helped the team this week. New Orleans will need some help, but they must win out to even have a chance.

Their first test comes against the Carolina Panthers, who’ve been circling the drain for the past month.
Demario Davis is a huge pickup for Sunday’s game. He’s the emotional leader of the defense and one of the most overlooked stars in the NFL today.
