METAIRIE, La. Saints right tackle Zach Strief is questionable for Sunday's game against San Francisco after being limited during practice every day this week.
That makes it likely that rookie tackle Bryce Harris will pick up his first career start, something he said Thursday he was ready to do.
Equally as important is that cornerback Elbert Mack is out. He was limited Friday after not practicing the previous two days because of a concussion. The Saints will have only three healthy players at the position and would use safety Malcolm Jenkins if pressed.
Running back Darren Sproles (left hand) was full once again and is listed as probable. The Saints' dynamic running back hasn't played since breaking his hand in Denver on Oct. 28.
Meanwhile, tackle Charles Brown (right knee), cornerback Corey White (left knee) and defensive end Junior Galette (left ankle) all didn't practice and are out for Sunday's game.
