Jabari Greer, Pierre Thomas, Akiem Hicks will sit out New Orleans Saints season finale

The New Orleans Saints will be without three players for Sunday's regular season finale against the Carolina Panthers in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome as cornerback Jabari Greer (concussion), running back Pierre Thomas (knee) and defensive tackle Akiem Hicks (knee) are listed as out on Friday's injury report. All three players missed practice all week.


New Orleans Saints running back Pierre Thomas won't play in the season finale Sunday.

Interim coach Joe Vitt wouldn't go as far to say that cornerback Elbert Mack would replace Greer as the starter in base defense, but Vitt said he does like Mack's steady progression within the defensive scheme.

Tight end Jimmy Graham (wrist/finger), running back Chris Ivory (hamstring) and fullback Jed Collins (knee) are probable to play against Carolina.

Three starters for the Panthers may miss Sunday's game with running back Jonathan Stewart (ankle), center Geoff Hangartner (foot) and linebacker James Anderson (back) listed as questionable. Wide receiver Joe Adams (ankle) is also questionable on the injury report.

Noticed the mention of Mack and I have to agree. To be honest I never expected he'd make it past being the 5th cb, but he's been playing really well. He seems to fit well in spags' d. Keep up the good work, Mack daddy.

I just we had players who could step up and show the team that there is a reason to keep them around.

Sit ther injured and play the backup. Maybe Run Ingram 20 to 25 snaps and see what he can do. Perfect Game to test a few guys out.
