New Orleans Saints tailback Chris Ivory said his hamstring injury is still bothering him a little bit, but he still thinks he will be ready to play Monday against the Atlanta Falcons.
Ivory said he was still feeling "a little grab" in the hamstring while he practiced on a limited basis Thursday.
"I can't really open up like I would like to," said Ivory, who suffered the injury against St. Louis in Week 14, then missed last week's game at Baltimore. "So I'm not full speed yet. I'd say about 90, 95 percent. So I've kind of got to pace myself at what speed I go in practice, so that I will be ready for Monday. ...
"Earlier in practice, it was feeling pretty good for the most part. But as we got to going, I tried to open up. And I'm probably not 100 percent, so once I tried to open up, I felt that grabbing feeling on it. But I think all that will get worked out this week. A little more treatment these next couple days, I think that will help."
