METAIRIE, La. ― Right guard Jahri Evans missed his second consecutive day of practice, resting his left knee after it was rolled up on in the second quarter of the Saints’ win over Minnesota this past Sunday.
Running back Mark Ingram, meanwhile, continues his stay on the sideline with turf toe, missing his eighth consecutive practice.
Linebacker Jonathan Vilma (knee), defensive tackle Sedrick Ellis (hamstring), linebacker Jonathan Casillas (knee), defensive tackle Aubrayo Franklin (ankle), linebacker Ramon Humber (knee) and receiver Lance Moore (hamstring) all were limited.
For Evans, a missed start would be monumental. He has started 94 consecutive games, most-ever in franchise history to start a career.
That’s also the third-longest active streak among guards in the NFL.
But it’s not something he focuses on.
“This league is measured in years so as many years as you can stay in this league and play at a high level you’ll be fine,” Evans said. “I don’t think anybody worries about consecutive starts or anything like that. But I’m definitely going to try to keep it going as long as I can.”
