Five Saints players were sidelined today during the first practice of the week for the Cowboys game.
Jimmy Graham, Malcolm Jenkins, Jahri Evans, Cam Jordan and David Hawthorne sat out with injuries.
There was some encouraging news. Marques Colston returned to practice on a limited basis after missing the last game, and Darren Sproles was able to fully take part in practice after leaving last Sunday's game with a concussion.
WWL Saints Sideline reporter Kristian Garic also reports that the Saints have also placed linebacker Jonathan Vilma on injured reserve. He is done for the season and may never play in a Saints uniform again.
Here is the full injury report:
