New Orleans has some concerns in its secondary, specifically on the outside, heading into the big Monday night showdown against the Patriots.
CB Tracy Porter (knee) is doubtful and unlikely to play for the second straight week, and the Saints listed CB Randall Gay (hamstring) and CB Jabari Greer (groin) as questionable. As result of their corner issues, New Orleans earlier in the week brought back veteran Mike McKenzie.
LB Jonathan Vilma (knee) and RB Reggie Bush (knee) are questionable for the Saints, but Bush is expected to play.
The Patriots listed a plethora of players (21 in all) on the team’s injury report, including 16 who are questionable for the game. The biggest development, though, among New England’s questionable players is with RB Sammy Morris. Morris (knee) hasn’t played since Oct. 25 and could return against the Saints.
