Saints Will Miss Mark Ingram And Jonathan Casillas For Sunday

NFL

Mike Triplett of the Times-Picayune reports that New Orleans Saints tailback Mark Ingram and linebacker Jonathan Casillas will not play in Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings.

Ingram, also missed last week’s game against the Tennessee Titans, due to a turf toe injury he sustained two weeks ago. He leads the Saints in rushing with 474 yards and five touchdowns.

Casillas is still nursing a knee injury and has yet to practice since the Saints beat the New York Giants in Week 13.

Linebacker Jonathan Vilma is questionable for Sunday’s game with a lingering knee injury as is defensive end Turk McBride with an ankle injury. Both were limited at practice today but will travel to Minneapolis.
