The New Orleans Saints set to face the Chicago Bears with a few injuries

The Saints are getting ready for this Sunday and a game that has implications for the team’s season
The New Orleans Saints are gearing up for their game against the Chicago Bears in Chicago on Sunday but may not have all of the players they would like back from injuries. There are still a couple of voids to be filled before the weekend, and a win in the upcoming game could give the Saints a huge boost on the season.
The Saints all-pro wide receiver Michael Thomas did not practice on Wednesday due to hamstring and ankle injuries. Fellow wide receiver Marquez Callaway did not practice as he is also nursing an ankle injury. Their pro bowl starting left tackle Terron Armstead, who injured his elbow, was able to practice on a limited basis but is still questionable for Sunday’s game, as is Saints guard Nick Easton who suffered a concussion.
The Saints have been pushing past their limited roster and won the last game with a great offensive effort, even without their star wide receivers. The Saints sit at 4-2 atop their division and look to keep their offense firing along, and hope for the defense to put up a stronger effort as they face the Chicago Bear, who are 5-2 at this junction of the season.
Everyone remembers the beating the New Orleans Saints gave the Bears last season, and the Bears offense has not been playing well at all. If the Saints can bring some of last week’s offensive firepower to the windy city, they have an excellent chance to come out of Sunday with a continuing winning streak and great position in the NFL standings. Fans will be preparing the famous “Who dat? Who dat? Who dat say dey gonna beat dem Saints?”
