The New Orleans Saints and Philadelphia Eagles published their initial injury reports following Wednesday’s practice sessions, and there’s several important updates from both sides. But the big name Saints fans will be looking for is nowhere to be seen: quarterback Drew Brees is still not practicing after suffering a complicated chest injury, which was reported earlier. For now, he’ll remain on injured reserve.
But there is good news for New Orleans. Starters like defensive end Marcus Davenport (concussion) and cornerback Janoris Jenkins (knee) returned to practice after missing Week 13’s game with the Atlanta Falcons, though Davenport practiced fully and Jenkins remained limited. We’ll see if he improves as the week continues.
A couple of other players are working to return from injuries: both cornerback Justin Hardee and wide receiver Lil’Jordan Humphrey were spotted at practice, but they’re still on the injured reserve lists, for now. Additionally, starting left tackle Terron Armstead and guard Derrick Kelly made their return from the COVID-19 reserve list.
