Considering the fact that the New Orleans Saints have not played a regular season game yet in 2022, the initial injury report heading into the season opener with the Atlanta Falcons is extensive.

Five players did not practice Wednesday, including wide receiver Tre’Quan Smith (groin), running back Dwayne Washington (hamstring), and tackles Landon Young (hip) and Tanner Owen (illness).

The biggest concern would be starting cornerback Paulson Adebo (ankle).

The big news is that Michael Thomas did practice on a limited basis with his lingering hamstring injury. Also limited were starting center Eric McCoy (calf) and special teams star J.T. Gray (hamstring).

Another player who worked in limited fashion was starting linebacker Pete Werner (groin), who missed the entire preseason.

New Orleans faces Atlanta on the road Sunday at noon.
