The Lions began practice for the week leading up to New Orleans with all hands at practice, although six Lions were reported as limited in the first injury report for the week. Many are the usual suspects, but Tahir Whitehead and Marvin Jones did make appearances with their own injuries they’re working through.
The Lions still await the return of DeAndre Levy, who was limited in practice on Wednesday. It’s unclear if he will play on Sunday, but signs continue to point towards cautious optimism.

However, overall the reports show signs that the Lions are remaining healthy as the regular season enters its final month; one that will be decisive for the Lions and their playoff hopes.
The New Orleans Saints were missing starting running back Mark Ingram with a toe injury on Wednesday. This injury is new for Ingram, but he was not pulled from Sunday’s game because of it.
In addition to Ingram, starting left tackle also sat out Wednesday’s practice with a knee/quad injury. Armstead left the game on Sunday and was not able to finish. Armstead has missed a lot of time this year with this injury and looks like he could miss another game this week.
