Redskins without Doctson, Saints scratch Teo
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The Washington Redskins have scratched receiver Josh Doctson from the lineup for Monday night's game against New Orleans.
Doctson had been listed as questionable with a heel injury on the club's final injury report on Saturday. The Redskins say Maurice Harris will start in Doctson's place.
The Saints, who'd already ruled out receiver Ted Ginn Jr. with knee soreness, also scratched linebacker Manti Teo, who'd been questionable with a knee injury.
METAIRIE, La. (AP) — New Orleans Saints receiver Travin Dural and center Cameron Tom each have been injured at Saints training camp.
Both went down with apparent upper body injuries during practice on Sunday.
Dural is a second-year pro out of LSU who spent his rookie year on the practice squad.
Tom, who is from Baton Rouge and played in college for Southern Miss, is entering his third NFL season.
Both players were able to walk with trainers off the practice field.
Left tackle Terron Armstead is active for playoff game against Carolina
The New Orleans Saints will have a few weapons in their arsenal on Sunday that they didn't have in their first two meetings against the Carolina Panthers.
In addition to cornerback Marshon Lattimore, left tackle Terron Armstead, who missed the season finale against Tampa Bay and was listed as questionable with a thigh injury, is active for Sunday's game.
TAMPA, Fla. — The New Orleans Saints brought Kasim Edebali back late this week to fill the void left by Hau'oli Kikaha's ankle injury.
Edebali won't get his chance to make an impact until the playoffs, though.
The Saints have declared Edebali inactive, meaning the defense will likely use Michael Mauti at strong-side linebacker and rookie Al-Quadin Muhammad at defensive end.
ATLANTA — The New Orleans Saints are close to having all hands on deck for Thursday night's showdown with the Atlanta Falcons.
Cornerback Marshon Lattimore is active, returning to action after missing the past two games due to an ankle injury suffered against the Washington Redskins.
New Orleans Saints defensive end Hau'oli Kikaha is active for the first time in the past three weeks.
Kikaha, who has two sacks but has played mostly as a situational pass rusher for the Saints, was a healthy scratch the past two weeks, prompting speculation about his role in New Orleans.
But the Saints have Kikaha up against Tampa Bay, which makes sense given the fact that the Buccaneers bring the No. 2 passing offense in the NFL into the Superdome.
