FORT WORTH, Texas — The New Orleans Saints had eight players listed on their initial injury report for the week, with several of those injured last week appearing to be on the road to recovery ahead of their Week 3 game against the New England Patriots.

Cornerback Marshon Lattimore (thumb) safety C.J. Gardner-Johnson (knee) and linebacker Pete Werner (hamstring) were all limited Wednesday after missing Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers, while defensive end Tanoh Kpassagnon (calf) was a full participant after not playing last week.

The only player who did not practice Wednesday was starting center Erik McCoy (calf). He sustained his injury against the Green Bay Packers and didn't practice all week last week in the lead up to the Panthers game.

Two new players were added to the injury report: guard Calvin Throckmorton (knee) and rookie defensive end Payton Turner (elbow). Both of them were limited on Wednesday after playing significant snaps on Sunday.

Safety P.J. Williams remains limited with a back injury. He was originally listed as questionable to play against the Panthers, but ultimately suited up.
