This may or may not be the last game in the Superdome for Drew Brees, and we're in for a promising matchup between the Saints and Bucs to close out the Divisional Round of NFL playoff action. Here's a look at who's in and who's out for New Orleans, as kickoff is set for 5:40 p.m. CT.
- QB Taysom Hill (knee)
- DB Patrick Robinson (hamstring)
- DB Ken Crawley
- RB Latavius Murray (quad)
- OL Derrick Kelly
- WR Juwan Johnson
- DT Malcolm Roach
There was some optimism that Hill and Murray would play are being limited participants of practice on Friday, but both were questionable entering the game. It was reported very early on Sunday that Hill wasn't expected to play, while Murray was later reported as being unavailable. New Orleans will miss Hill, but it does seem fitting that things rest on Drew Brees' shoulders at quarterback. Alvin Kamara should see increased touches, while Ty Montgomery could see some work as well.
The winner of this game will have a date with Aaron Rodgers and the Packers at Lambeau Field next Sunday in a 2:05 p.m. CT kickoff on FOX.
