METAIRIE, La. — Fullback Jed Collins and right tackle Zach Strief were the only two players to not practice Wednesday as the Saints’ injury list continues to get shorter with players being put on injured reserve.

Collins injured his knee on the opening play of Sunday’s game while Strief was out for his fourth straight practice. White joined offensive tackle Charles Brown and safety Malcolm Jenkins, who were placed on IR this past Saturday.

Meanwhile, cornerback Corey White became the latest player placed in IR after he couldn’t overcome a midseason right knee sprain. His roster spot went to receiver Saalim Hakim.

Cornerback Patrick Robinson was limited with a groin injury, one interim coach Joe Vitt said wasn’t serious. Running back Chris Ivory was limited with a hamstring injury that has kept him out of the past two games.

And tight end Jimmy Graham was on the practice injury report with a  left wrist injury as being full.

For Dallas, running back DeMarco Murray (foot), defensive tackle Jay Ratliff (groin) and linebacker Ernie Sims (concussion) didn’t practice while receiver Dez Bryant (finger) and linebacker DeMarcus Ware (elbow) were limited.
