Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson is a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints, coach Kliff Kingsbury said Friday. Johnson is battling an ankle injury and missed the entire week of practices. He is listed as questionable and Kingsbury wants to give him a little more time to see if the ankle improves.

When quarterback Drew Brees injured his right thumb in Week 2 against the Los Angeles Rams, the New Orleans Saints' playoff hopes seemed to be over. Except Teddy Bridgewater has led them to a 3-0 record since and first place in the NFC South. Bridgewater threw for 314 yards and four touchdowns in a 31-24 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last week.

Forget younger sports fans cutting the cord, viewership for the NFL is as high as it's ever been. Sunday night's game between the Dallas Cowboys and New Orleans Saints was the highest-rated Week 4 game ever on “Sunday Night Football” and NBC's highest-rated game in three years. Despite a lack of scoring in the 12-10 affair, the broadcast drew 24.7 million viewers, according to numbers released by Nielsen.

There will be unfamiliar sights for fans of the New York Giants and the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, as their teams begin regular-season games without Eli Manning and Drew Brees respectively. Manning has been benched as the Giants' starting QB, with Daniel Jones called up in his place, while a thumb injury has ruled out Saints veteran Brees. The New York Jets and the Miami Dolphins have, like the Giants, begun the season with back-to-back defeats and each face stern tests in Week 3.

The New Orleans Saints will be on a revenge mission when they do battle with the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday. Los Angeles claimed a dramatic 26-23 overtime win over New Orleans in the NFC Championship game in January and they are set for an early-season battle nine months later. Both sides got their seasons under way with victories and the Rams will have home advantage as they go in search of back-to-back successes.

He's still the top back in a good offense and I'm cool with taking the plunge at the Round 2-to-3 turn. RB Tier 4 - RB1 potential with some questions marks 13) Leonard Fournette, Jacksonville Jaguars 14) Kerryon Johnson, Detroit Lions 15) Damien Williams, Kansas City Chiefs 16) Aaron Jones, Green Bay Packers 17) Melvin Gordon, Los Angeles Chargers It can take some time to come around to but Leonard Fournette is a strong bounce-back candidate. His top “competition” on the depth chart is (probably) Alfred Blue.

Free agent guard Patrick Omameh agreed to terms with the New Orleans Saints on Sunday evening, after trying out with the team earlier in the day. Omameh's agency, Schwartz & Feinsod, announced the agreement on Twitter.

The 29-year-old has started 56 of his 67 games with four teams since going undrafted out of Michigan in 2013.

Eli Apple will be a free agent at the end of the 2019 season after the New Orleans Saints declined the cornerback's fifth-year option. Apple was drafted 10th overall in 2016 by the New York Giants and acquired by the Saints at the trade deadline in 2018. All draft picks sign four-year deals, and first-round draft picks have a fifth-year team option.

The New Orleans Saints were still waiting to make their first pick of the NFL draft when Thursday night's first round ended. The Saints are slated to pick late in the second round at 62nd overall on Friday night and will try to acquire a player capable of contributing next season to a team widely expected to be a playoff contender. That's the only pick New Orleans currently has in the first four rounds because of a series of 2018 trades designed to help the club contend for another title while record-setting quarterback Drew Brees, who turned 40 last January, is still playing.
