Saints Thursday Injury Report Week 16: Starting LT Bushrod Remains Sidelined

The New Orleans Saints second injury report of Week 16 ahead of their Sunday home game against the Pittsburgh Steelers is now out and the Thursday offering shows just one change from the one the team released on Wednesday.

Failing to practice again on Thursday for the Saints was starting left tackle Jermon Bushrod (hamstring), who was injured during his team’s Monday night win against the Carolina Panthers.

After failing to practice on Wednesday, Saints center Max Unger (concussion) was limited on Thursday, according to the team’s injury report. Unger is still working his way through concussion protocol.

Limited again on Thursday for the Saints were guard Andrus Peat (shoulder), tackle Ryan Ramczyk (shoulder), punter Thomas Morstead (ankle), and tackle Terron Armstead (pectoral/knee).

Peat is the Saints starting left guard but he might have to move over to left tackle on Sunday against the Steelers should Bushrod miss the game with his hamstring injury. Such a move could result in Cameron Tom starting at left guard if he’s not asked to start at center in place of Unger. Ramczyk, by the way, is the Saints starting right tackle.
