The Saints expect to be at nearly full strength, and may have all of their players ready when they take on the Seahawks Monday night.
Seattle has one cornerback out for the game due to injury, another suspended and a key wide receiver is doubtful.
Cornerback Walter Thurmond was officially suspended Tuesday for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, Seahawk cornerback Brandon Browner is out with a groin injury and Seattle lists Percy Harvin as doubtful with a hip injury.
Seattle also says that "beast" running back Marshawn Lynch has a knee injury, but is probable for Monday night.
The Saints say Darren Sproles, Jahri Evans and Chris Carr are all probable.
Only two New Orleans players are questionable on the injury report below:
DE Glenn Foster (Knee) Did Not Practice on Saturday
LB Keyunta Dawson (Calf) Did Not Practice on Saturday
RB Darren Sproles (Ankle) Full on Saturday
G Jahri Evans (Ankle) Full on Saturday
CB Chris Carr (Hip/ Hamstring) Full on Saturday
