  Saints | Injury notes    Tue Aug 26, 11:48 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Kenny Stills (quadriceps), SS Rafael Bush (undisclosed), SS Marcus Ball (undisclosed), LB Khairi Fortt (undisclosed) and FB Erik Lorig (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Tuesday, Aug. 26, and CB Trevin Wade (undisclosed) was limited.

Footballguys view: Stills has barely played this summer. His star is falling in redraft leagues and his absence is doing nothing to slow down the Brandin Cooks express and the resurgence of Marques Colston. Unless Still falls to the 11th-12th round or later, Cooks and Colston are much better picks at their ADP.
