Pierre Thomas left Sunday's game with a shoulder injury.

The Saints finally got Mark Ingram back, and how they lose Pierre Thomas. Tavaris Cadet led all New Orleans running backs with five receptions, and Cadet would likely get even more work in the passing game with Thomas out. Whether Thomas is healthy or not Khiry Robinson is droppable.

Brodrick Bunkley (concussion) and Glenn Foster (knee) are both ruled out for the rest of Sunday's action against the Lions.

The Saints could have a hard time holding off the Detroit comeback with two of their better defensive linemen out.

Jonathan Goodwin is out for the game after suffering a leg injury in the first half.

Second-year pro Tim Lelito out of Grand Valley State will replace Goodwin at center.

RB Mark Ingram is available Sunday for first time since fracturing his hand in Week 2.

He was looking like a fantasy stud before he got hurt by piling up 143 rushing yards and three touchdowns in two games. Ingram is a low end RB2 in fantasy. Have confidence starting him in deep leagues or as a bye week fill-in.

Jay Glazer of Fox Sports confirmed that Jimmy Graham (shoulder) is indeed playing against Lions.

He will be playing Sunday, but it's unclear how many snaps he's going to recieve. Either way, if you own Graham then you have to start him because he's still the most talented tight end in the game and will be on the field for red zone opportunities.

Jimmy Graham is not expected to start, but is expected to play.

Although Graham is not going to see his usual amount of snaps in Week 7, it is expected that he will be used in the red zone which could lead to a few grabs near the end zone if in fact he suits up. Those with safer alternatives can explore other avenues in addressing the tight end position this week, but odds are there aren't many players out there that have his abilities, even at less than 100 percent.

Jimmy Graham (shoulder) said he’d be open to being limited only to red zone situations in Week 7.

The Saints have been using some gamesmanship lately and being deceptive about whether Graham would actually play this week against the Lions, but he traveled with the team and it looks like he has a decent shot at playing. There's a good chance he could be a decoy, or just a red zone target, in Week 7, but it's impossible not to start him unless you have Julius Thomas on your roster as well. While he likely won't rack up too many yards this week and could be on a snap count, he's one of the few guys Brees trusts in the red zone, so hopefully he can grab a touchdown or two and provide some points for fantasy owners.

Saints added ILB Todd Davis from the practice squad.

The Saints needed some linebacker depth after declaring Ramon Humber and Kyle Knox out for Sunday's contest on the road in Detroit. Both Humber and Knox have ankle injuries that are sidelining them in Week 7.

Saints cut TE Tom Crabtree.

This hints that Jimmy Graham is not as injured as feared. I still would not plan on Graham starting on Sunday in Detroit, but cutting Crabtree is a sign that bears watching.
