With a playoff spot already procured as NFC South Champions, the New Orleans Saints (10-3) need to win out and get some help with other teams losing to secure the #1 seed in the NFC.

The Indianapolis Colts (6-7) have not been mathematically eliminated from the AFC playoff picture yet but could be eliminated with a loss on Monday night, depending on how other games shake out on Sunday.

New Orleans hosts Indianapolis on Monday night. The two teams released their first injury report of the week today, and it looks similar to the initial report from yesterday.

Saints tight end Jared Cook (concussion) was upgraded to a full participant today, while Cameron Jordan (abdomen) and Terron Armstead (ankle) were upgraded to limited participants after missing yesterday.

Quarterback Drew Brees appeared on today's report with a right elbow injury, though he practiced fully. Brees wore a sleeve on his throwing arm, but told reporters he feels "fine".

The final injury report of the week for both teams will come out tomorrow.

In the meantime, here's a complete rundown of Thursday's practice/injury report.
