METAIRIE, La. (AP) — Saints coach Sean Payton says there is a “very realistic” possibility of injured receiver Ted Ginn Jr. playing again this season.
Meanwhile, New Orleans has ruled out left guard Andrus Peat and listed right guard Larry Warford as questionable for Sunday’s game at Baltimore.
Peat has missed practice this week with a head injury, while Warford has been hampered by back soreness.
Ginn was placed on injured reserve on Thursday because of a nagging knee injury that Payton says will require arthroscopic surgery. Under NFL rules, teams may bring up to two players back to the active roster after they have spent at least eight weeks on injured reserve.
If Ginn recovers on schedule, he’d be eligible to play again in Week 15. That means he’d be able to play in up to three regular-season games plus any playoff games, should the NFC South-leading Saints qualify for the postseason.
Ginn has played in four games this season, catching 12 passes for 135 yards and two touchdowns.
