Saints rookie wide receiver Chris Olave cleared NFL concussion protocol and plans to suit up Thursday night when New Orleans visits the Arizona Cardinals.
Olave missed Week 6 with a concussion as the Saints were working without their top three receivers. Michael Thomas and Jarvis Landry are not expected to be ready to go Thursday.
Thomas (foot), Landry (ankle), cornerback Marshon Lattimore (abdomen) and offensive guard Andrus Peat (chest) were all absent from the Tuesday portion of practice open to the media.
The Saints have used 34 different starters in six games and enter Thursday’s game with original starting quarterback Jameis Winston and backup Andy Dalton on the injury report due to back injuries. Winston is also slowed by an ankle injury.
Olave was a first-round pick in April and leads the Saints with 25 receptions for 389 yards and also has two touchdowns despite sitting out the 30-26 loss to Cincinnati last week.
