The Saints will be without a pair of offensive linemen and key defenders in Sunday’s matchup with the Steelers, according to New Orleans’ Friday practice report.
Both center Erik McCoy (calf) and guard Andrus Peat (tricep) were ruled out for the matchup after not participating in any of the team’s sessions this week.
Cornerback Marshon Lattimore hasn’t played since Week 5 with an abdomen injury. He’ll miss his fifth consecutive contest, while linebacker and team leader in tackles Pete Werner will be sidelined with an ankle injury. He was carted off in the team’s home loss to Baltimore Monday night.
Defensive end Marcus Davenport (calf) and safety Marcus Maye (abdomen) are currently questionable. As are defensive end Tanoh Kpassagnon and safety P.J. Williams, both of whom are ill.
Tackle Ryan Ramczyk (rest/knee) was a full participant, along with defensive end Cameron Jordan (rest). Receiver Jarvis Landry (ankle) was limited, like he has been all week.
The Saints have dropped three of their last four, with their only win during that span coming against struggling Las Vegas. The team’s short week has certainly had an effect, meanwhile the Steelers enjoyed a week of rest.
