SEATTLE — Keenan Lewis is officially listed as probable for Saturday’s game against Seattle, a big boost for a defense that would have been down to the preseason’s No. 4 and No. 5 cornerback if he hadn’t been able to play.
Running back Pierre Thomas (chest) and defensive end Akiem Hicks (ankle) are both listed as questionable, meanwhile.
Missing Hicks would be tough, but the Saints have some depth there.
Lewis would have been a big loss. He left last Saturday’s wild card playoff game at Philadelphia early with a head injury and remained on the sideline, breaking with league rules so he could watch the game with teammates.
However, he practiced all three days this week fully and should make his 18th consecutive start.
The Saints already are playing with Corey White, the team’s fourth cornerback coming out of training camp, opposite of Lewis. He replaced Jabari Greer, who tore an anterior cruciate ligament in early November against San Francisco. Patrick Robinson, the No. 3 corner, was lost in the second game with a patellar injury.
For Seattle, linebacker K.J. Wright is out with a foot injury while safety Chris Maragos (back) is questionable and defensive tackle Jordan Hill (groin) is doubtful.
Receiver Percy Harvin (hip), safety Kam Chancellor (hip) and tight end Luke Wilson (ankle) all are listed as probable.
