METAIRIE, La. — Safety Kenny Vaccaro and tight end Benjamin Watson both sat out practice Wednesday after suffering concussions during the Saints’ Sunday night win over Dallas.

While Vaccaro said on social media on earlier this week that he will be out this game, it’s likely that both will at least the next game after missing practice Wednesday. The Saints host San Francisco on Sunday and then must travel to Atlanta for a Thursday night game four days later.

Linebacker Curtis Lofton (ankle) didn’t practice and neither did defensive lineman Akiem Hicks (back).

Safeties Roman Harper (left knee) and Malcolm Jenkins both were full, as was defensive end Tyrunn Walker (knee).

Jenkins had missed time the past few weeks with a knee injury, but the practice report said he was full Wednesday with a hamstring issue. It was Jenkins' first full day of practice since getting injured in the first half against Buffalo.

Tight end Jimmy Graham (elbow/foot) and defensive end Cameron Jordan (ankle) were limited.
