METAIRIE, La. – Six players, including two running backs, two offensive linemen and two defensive backs, missed practice for the Saints ahead of Sunday’s home game against Tampa Bay.
Running backs Jed Collins (right toe) and Chris Ivory (hamstring), along with tackles Charles Brown (left knee) and Zach Strief (right ankle), safety Malcolm Jenkins (knee) and cornerback Corey White (right knee) were held out.
Collins, Strief and Jenkins all were injured in New Orleans’ loss at New York this past weekend. Ivory’s hamstring was tweaked sometime between last Friday and Saturday morning’s walk-through.
White, meanwhile, suffered a setback in practice last week after returning from the sprain to his medial collateral and posterior collateral ligaments. Brown has been out since spraining his MCL against Oakland on Nov. 18.
