Lance Moore out, Shockey questionable for Saints

New Orleans Times-Picayune - [Full Article]

Two New Orleans Saints players have been ruled out for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay -- receiver Lance Moore (ankle) and safety Usama Young (sports hernia).

Six players are questionable -- safety Darren Sharper (knee), cornerback Jabari Greer (sports hernia), cornerback Randall Gay (concussion), linebacker Scott Shanle (concussion), defensive tackle Sedrick Ellis (knee) and tight end Jeremy Shockey (toe).

Of that group, only Shanle was held out of practice Friday. He didn't practice all week. Both he and Gay need to be cleared by an independent neurologist, in addition to team decision-makers, before they can play.

Sharper returned to practice on a limited basis Friday, which is a good sign. Gay practiced on a limited basis Thursday and Friday. Greer, Ellis and Shockey practiced on a limited basis all week.

Everyone else on the Saints' injury report is listed as probable -- tailback Reggie Bush (hamstring), offensive tackles Jermon Bushrod (thumb) and Jon Stinchcomb (knee), guard Jahri Evans (toe), center Jonathan Goodwin (ankle), tight end Darnell Dinkins (foot), linebackers Jonathan Vilma (knee) and Scott Fujita (knee) and defensive end Bobby McCray (back).
