Saints rule out DE Hendrickson, OG Easton for playoff game with Bears
As expected, standout defensive end Trey Hendrickson and starting right guard Nick Easton are out Sunday afternoon for the New Orleans Saints as they take on the Chicago Bears in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
Hendrickson has a neck injury while Easton is suffering from a concussion.
The Saints have activated safety Chauncey Gardner-Johnson from the Reserve/COVID-19 list and he will play Sunday after missing last week’s game at Carolina.
Now, we wait to see if Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara will return.
Kamara tweeted Thursday that he plans to be in that number while there is a good chance Thomas will be back.
Defensive back Buster Skrine is the only player declared out for the Bears. Former Tulane wide receiver Darnell Mooney is listed as questionable, along with linebackers Roquan Smith and Josh Woods, along with defensive back Jaylon Johnson.
