There was good and bad news on the injury front Wednesday afternoon when Saints coach Sean Payton issued the first practice report of the week for Saturday’s divisional playoff game with the Seattle Seahawks.
The good news was cornerback Keenan Lewis, who suffered a concussion in last Saturday’s 26-24 wild-card playoff win against the Philadelphia Eagles, had full participation in practice.
While Payton wasn’t required to turn in a practice report on Tuesday, Lewis told reporters he had practiced and will be ready for the game with the Seahawks. He was listed Wednesday as having a head/neck injury.
The bad news was running back Pierre Thomas, who came out of the regular-season finale against the Tampa Bay Bucs with a chest injury, did not practice again.
Thomas was held out of the wild-card game with the Eagles and has not practiced since being injured against the Bucs on Dec. 29.
Tackle Terron Armstead (knee) also had full participation on Wednesday, while guard Jahri Evans (ankle) and defensive end Akiem Hicks (ankle) were limited.
For the Seahawks, safety Kam Chancellor (hip) and linebacker K.J. Wright (foot) did not practice, while wide receiver Percy Harvin (hip) and tight end Luke Wilson (ankle) had full participation.
