This week’s New Orleans Saints practice schedule looks a bit different than usual. Having made the long trip to Seattle for Monday night’s game, they elected to overnight in the Pacific Northwest before returning to New Orleans and holding off practice on Wednesday. They won’t hit the practice field until Thursday, so the initial injury report is an estimate of each player’s participation from the training staff.

And five different players would have been held out if the team had practiced. It includes last week’s non-participants in quarterback Taysom Hill (concussion), wide receiver Deonte Harris (hamstring), and running back Dwayne Washington (neck), as well as rookie first-round pick Payton Turner (calf) who suffered a midweek issue and did not play against Seattle. Pro Bowl guard Andrus Peat (pectoral) was also estimated to be absent with what’s feared to be a season-ending injury.

But there’s a lot going on with Tampa Bay’s first Week 8 injury report. Here is the scoop from both teams:
