Saints’ Brandon Coleman dominated out for Sunday’s recreation vs. Vikings


The New Orleans Saints are down a wide receiver for Sunday’s matchup against the Minnesota Vikings.

Brandon Coleman (neck) has been ruled out, but the Saints have depth behind starters Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn Jr. with Willie Snead and Tommylee Lewis.

Additionally, rookie Austin Carr, who was a healthy inactive during the 2017 regular season, is available on the 53-man roster should the Saints deem it necessary to bolster depth at wide receiver.

The Saints added rookie quarterback Tayson Hill to the injury report as not practicing with an illness. Hill joins linebacker Michael Mauti (illness) as questionable.

The remaining players on the Saints’ injury report — defensive end Cameron Jordan (knee), defensive tackle David Onyemata (thumb), left tackle Terron Armstead (thigh), defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins (ankle), rookie defensive end Trey Hendrickson (ankle), tight end Michael Hoomanawanui (back) and cornerback P.J. Williams (ankle) — practiced fully Friday and are not assigned a game designation.

The Vikings list cornerback Terence Newman (foot) as questionable.
