NEW ORLEANS Saints running back Chris Ivory is active for the first time in the 2012 season after sitting the first four games as a healthy scratch.

The move likely was made after the team decided on Friday to make Travaris Cadet inactive with a shoulder injury.

Meanwhile, they'll again be down to five linebackers for the second week in a row after the team named Jonathan Casillas inactive in back-to-back weeks with a neck injury.

David Hawthorne (hamstring) also is inactive, though the Saints labeled him as inactive on Friday.

Other than Casillas and Hawthorne, defensive tackle Tyrunn Walker and offensive tackle Bryce Harris were named inactive prior to the game.

Friday, the Saints deemed receiver Lance Moore (hamstring) and defensive end Turk McBride (ankle) as inactive after all four missed practice throughout the week.
