The New Orleans Saints arrive in Minnesota on a five-game winning streak finding ways to outscore opponents each week under the leadership of quarterback Drew Brees.
One of Brees' favorite targets, tight end Jimmy Graham will play on Sunday while dealing with a minor back injury. Graham leads the Saints in receptions, yards and touchdowns which is pretty impressive considering the dynamic offense New Orleans brings to the field each week.
Rookie running back Mark Ingram leads the Saints in rushing despite missing last week with a toe injury. The bothersome toe injury has not healed forcing Ingram back on the inactive list this week. New Orleans will rely on their running back depth with Darrren Sproles and Pierre Thomas offering some nice running back options to pick up the load in Ingram's absence.
Here is the inactive list released by the Saints.
Saints inactives for today: DB Leigh Torrence, RB Mark Ingram, LB Jonathan Casillas, OT William Robinson, TE Michael Higgins, WR Adrian Arrington, DE Turk McBride
