For the second straight day, New Orleans Saints quarterback Jameis Winston and wide receiver Michael Thomas were unable to practice Thursday.
Their statuses do not bode well for the two starters playing in Sunday’s Week 5 game against the visiting Seattle Seahawks.
Both Winston (back, ankle) and Thomas (foot) missed the Saints’ Week 4 loss to the Minnesota Vikings in London with their respective injuries. Winston was reportedly playing through four fractured vertebrae before being sidelined.
Andy Dalton would be in line to start at quarterback again should Winston be unable to go against Seattle.
Offensive lineman Calvin Throckmorton (hip), defensive end Payton Turner (chest) and cornerback P.J. Williams (quadricep) were also non-participants in practice for the second consecutive day.
Running back Alvin Kamara (rib), who was inactive for the Week 4 game in London, was listed as a limited participant for the second day in a row.
