Saints injury report: Roman Harper, Rafael Bush

By on 12/21/2013 06:00:00 PM

Despite being upended in St. Louis last week, the Saints have to be feeling good about where they're at with injuries before an all-important showdown for NFC South supremacy with the Panthers on Sunday.

No active players on the Saints roster have been ruled out this week and no starters are on the Week 16 injury report.

The secondary may have some depth issues at safety. Backup free safety Rafael Bush missed practice this week due to an ankle injury and he is the one Saint considered doubtful for Sunday's game. Backup strong safety Roman Harper (hip) was limited but should be able to participate, after he was removed from the injury report on Friday.

Outside Linebacker Keyunta Dawson (calf) and tight end Josh Hill (hamstring) were limited in practice this week and will be questionable game-time decisions.

Running back Travaris Cadet (non-injury) missed Friday practice but is considered likely to be available.

Virtually no injury concerns for the Saints in a game that means a lot to a team that has been less than spectacular away from New Orleans. If they want to host a Wildard Weekend game, they'll have to find a way to win in Carolina first.
