Ranking the most banged-up NFL teams from 1-32

It's not that the Saints have been hindered by major season-ending injuries, but nagging ailments to key players have contributed to the team's poor starts.

QB Drew Brees' shoulder injury was the blockbuster. The Saints went 0-2 in the game when he got hurt and the game he missed a week later. It's unclear if Brees is fully back to 100 percent, but he has proved to be effective regardless -- and that should only get better as the year goes on.

The offensive line seems to have a new injury creep up every week, which is a big reason for the inconsistency up front. But the Saints are expecting to get standout left tackle Terron Armstead back soon from a knee injury, which is imperative.

The defense, meanwhile, began the year without three key starters (cornerback Keenan Lewis, safety Jairus Byrd and linebacker Dannell Ellerbe). All have returned, though Lewis has been extremely limited while dealing with a nagging hip injury. It would really help if he can get right down the stretch. -- Mike Triplett

Players out for season: S Rafael Bush (chest), LB Davis Tull (shoulder), CB P.J. Williams (hamstring), S Vinnie Sunseri (leg)

Players injured: S Jairus Byrd (knee), LB Dannell Ellerbe (foot), G Jahri Evans (knee), CB Keenan Lewis (hip), T Terron Armstead (knee), P Thomas Morstead (quadriceps), QB Drew Brees (shoulder), WR Marques Colston (shoulder), G Tim Lelito (shoulder), DE Bobby Richardson (hip), RB C.J. Spiller (knee), OT Andrus Peat (knee), DB Damian Swann (concussion)
Total starts missed: 20 -- Byrd (3), Ellerbe (3), Evans (3), Lewis (3), Armstead (2), Morstead (2), Brees (1), Colston (1), Lelito (1), Richardson (1)

Green Bay #1 as the most banged up NFL team?

6-0 and it appears they haven't skipped a beat... even without Jordy.

Their defense has improved but the offense is missing Jordy.

yep. the thing with the packers they draft well and the team is deep with players that have been there a good while. players come and very few go. unlike the saints they do not have a revolving door at the front office.

that is why GB is a good team.

Too bad we have historically drafted poorly.
