METAIRIE, La. - The New Orleans Saints might have a couple key offensive players back in the fold Thursday against the Dallas Cowboys — and then again, they may not.
Running back Alvin Kamara, right tackle Ryan Ramczyk and left tackle Terron Armstead are all questionable with knee injuries for Thursday's game against the Dallas Cowboys.
Those three players have combined to make seven Pro Bowls and a couple All-Pro teams the last four years, and the Saints have acutely felt their absence during their four-game losing streak.
The injury report was more cut and dry on the defensive side — linebacker Kaden Elliss (hamstring) and defensive ends Tanoh Kpassagnon (ankle) and Marcus Davenport (shoulder) were all ruled out.
Ramczyk, Kpassagnon, Davenport, Armstead and Elliss all did not participate in Wednesday's practice, while Kamara was a limited participant.
Kamara has missed three games with his knee injury, while Ramczyk has missed two. Armstead played last week against the Buffalo Bills, which was his first game back after missing two games with knee and shoulder injuries.
This will be the third game missed for Kpassagnon with his ankle injury and will be the second missed game for Davenport with his shoulder injury. Elliss sustained his hamstring injury last week against the Buffalo Bills.
