There was a new addition to Thursday’s injury report for the New Orleans Saints.
Wide receiver Chris Olave missed the session with an illness. Coach Dennis Allen does not speak to the media on Thursdays and offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael declined to give an update on Olave’s condition.
In all, Olave was among five players who didn’t practice for the Saints. Tight end Taysom Hill (foot/left hand), defensive end Isaiah Foskey (quad), running back Kendre Miller (ankle) and wide receiver Rashid Shaheed (thigh) missed their second straight practice of the week.
Quarterback Derek Carr (concussion/rib/shoulder), tight end Juwan Johnson (quad), linebacker Pete Werner (shoulder/oblique), tackle Andrus Peat (shoulder) and defensive end Cam Jordan (ankle) were limited.
Jordan, who suffered an ankle injury Nov. 26 against the Atlanta Falcons, was able to be a limited participant after sitting out Wednesday’s practice. Jordan was among three who had their statuses upgraded: Center Erik McCoy (shoulder) and tackle Ryan Ramcyzk (ankle) also were full participants in Thursday’s session after being limited the day prior.
Defensive coordinator Joe Woods said he anticipated Jordan seeing an uptick in snaps for Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers. The 34-year-old, who was on a limit of 15 to 20 plays, played just 17 snaps in last Sunday’s loss to the Detroit Lions.
