Saints | Injury Updates

The Advocate reports the New Orleans Saints defense may have a different look this weekend, as LB Keith Mitchell (foot), DT Norman Hand (foot) and DBs Kevin Mathis (neck), Fred Weary (knee) and Michael Hawthorne (back) are all unlikely to play. That would open the door for more playing time, and possible starts, for CBs Steve Israel and Tim Carter. As reported, LB Sedrick Hodge would start at linebacker if Mitchell can't play and Martin Chase and Kenny Smith would see more time on the defensive line due to Hand's continued problems.
