The New Orleans Saints injury report improved slightly Thursday. Tailback Mark Ingram (heel) and linebacker Jonathan Vilma (knee) remained out, but defensive tackle Sedrick Ellis (ankle) and linebacker Jonathan Casillas (knee) returned to practice on a limited basis.
Ingram appears unlikely to play Sunday against the St. Louis Rams at this point, though the Saints haven’t ruled him out. Vilma will likely play. He’s been missing mid-week practices throughout the season to rest the knee.
As for the rest of the Saints’ injury report, tight end David Thomas #concussion# and right tackle Zach Strief #knee# were limited. Everyone else fully participated.
