METAIRIE, La. (AP) — Minnesota defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd, linebacker Chad Greenway and tight end Kyle Rudolph are all active for Sunday's game against New Orleans after the three starters had been listed as questionable on Friday's injury report.
Floyd is playing with a sore shoulder. Greenway has hand and rib injuries. Rudolph has an abdomen injury.
Saints defensive tackle John Jenkins, a 2013 third-round draft choice, is a healthy scratch, having lost playing time to Brandon Deaderick.
New Orleans' other healthy scratches are rookie defensive back Stanley Jean-Baptiste and receiver Nick Toon. Running back Mark Ingram and linebacker David Hawthorne were among those already ruled out with injuries.
Minnesota has decided not to activate new receiver Charles Johnson, signed off Cleveland's practice squad on Saturday. Minnesota also deactivated reserve linebacker Brandon Watts, who has a sore knee.
