- As expected, RB Pierre Thomas is active. How much time will be split between Reggie Bush, Mike Bell and Thomas is now the big question.
- DT Kendrick Clancy was a game-time decision and has been ruled inactive with a knee problem. Remi Ayodele will make his first career NFL start in five seasons. They will be backed up by DE/DT Anthony Hargrove, as the Saints have no other defensive tackles on the roster. Charles Grant will likely be sliding inside as well.
- Inactives for the game:
QB Michael Vick, G Todd Herremans, G Mike McGlynn, WR Reggie Brown, S Quintin Demps, LB Joe Mays, WR Brandon Gibson, QB Donovan McNabb
TE Darnell Dinkins (foot), CB Leigh Torrence (healthy), WR Rod Harper (healthy), C Nick Leckey (healthy), RB Lynell Hamilton (healthy), DT Kendrick Clancy (knee), LB Jonathan Casillas (healthy), T Jammal Brown (sports hernia, hip)
