Starting cornerback Jabari Greer and running back Pierre Thomas are among three Saints who won’t play in Sunday’s season finale with the Carolina Panthers because of injuries.
Greer suffered a concussion and Thomas injured a knee in last week’s win over the Dallas Cowboys and weren’t able to practice all week as the Saints (7-8) prepared for the Panthers (6-9).
Saints interim coach Joe Vitt also ruled out defensive tackle Akiem Hicks, who came out of the Cowboys game with a knee injury.
Here is the final injury report turned in to the league office by Vitt and Panthers coach Ron Rivera:
Out – CB Jabari Greer (concussion), RB Pierre Thomas (knee), DT Akiem Hicks (knee).
Probable – TE Jimmy Graham (wrist/finger), FB Jed Collins (knee), RB Chris Ivory (hamstring).
Questionable – RB Jonathan Stewart (ankle), C Geoff Hangartner (foot), LB James Anderson (back), WR Joe Adams (ankle).
Probable – DE Greg Hardy (not injury-related), WR Brandon LaFell (toe).
