Saints quarterback Drew Brees says the offense will miss injured receiver Brandin Cooks, but will not change.

Of course it won't change. While Cooks was an important cog in the machine, his loss isn't going to throw off the entire offense. Marques Colston is going to need to step up more and learn to hold onto the ball while Kenny Stills should see a nice increase in targets. Jimmy Graham remains the top target for Brees and maybe even Joseph Morgan takes a small step forward. Plenty of options for the Saints here. Cooks' loss is a bummer but not insurmountable.

Mark Ingram (shoulder) practiced in full Thursday.

Ingram will be ready to go on Monday night when New Orleans hosts the Baltimore Ravens. He is most certainly the feature back in New Orleans and makes for a very strong option this week.

Edwin Baker was re-signed to the Saints practice squad.

The Saints have had issues at running back this season and Baker was signed to provide insurance for the team. He's unlikely to crack the roster, but if he does, he'll be on the sidelines most of the time.

Saints released RB Tauren Poole.

Poole was on the Saints' practice squad serving as depth, but will now have to look elsewhere for work.

Zach Strief fully participated in practice Thursday after leaving last week's game with concussion.

It looks like Strief is healed and clearance has been given. Expect to see him return to action Sunday.

Pierre Thomas returned to practice Thursday in a limited capacity, as did Robert Meachem.

The Saints are hoping to get Thomas back, especially considering Travaris Cadet missed practice and may have his status for Sunday in question. If he is able to play, he'll serve as the pass-catching complement to Mark Ingram.

Keenan Lewis, Travaris Cadet, Khiry Robinson, Curtis Lofton, and Kyle Knox did not practice Thursday.

A missed practice doesn't bode well for Sunday's game.We understand Robinson, Lewis and Lofton, but Cadet's absence is a little surprising as no injury has been reported just yet. Expect the Saints to update soon.

Saints signed WR Jalen Saunders off of Seattle's practice squad.

Saunders is going serve as depth for the Saints and nothing more. It is highly unlikely that he will even see the field while on the active roster.

Saints have cut veteran RB Brian Leonard.

Leonard played against the Bengals on Sunday and was then cut on Wednesday. He did have one reception in Sunday's loss, but had zero fantasy value coming into the game. It's unlikely that he'll get another chance this year.

Saints cut RB Edwin Baker.

THe Saints have been making minor roster moves throughout the day and Baker is the odd man out this time. He's a practice squad player that has no right being on any fantasy team.
