RB Ivory active, LB Casillas out for Saints
Saints running back Chris Ivory is active for the first time
this season against San Diego on Sunday night, but New Orleans
scratched linebacker Jonathan Casillas, who had been limited by a
neck injury and was listed as questionable late in the week.
Ivory was the Saints’ leading rusher in 2010 but the Saints have
struggled to find room for him on game day with Pierre Thomas,
Darren Sproles and Mark Ingram also in the lineup.
This week, Lance Moore (right hamstring), running back Travaris
Cadet (right shoulder), defensive end Turk McBride (left ankle) and
linebacker David Hawthorne (right hamstring) already had been ruled
San Diego was without kicker Nate Kaeding (right groin), who’d
been ruled out earlier. San Diego’s other inactives included former
LSU safety Brandon Taylor.
