Moore, Casillas out for Saints
Friday, January 6, 2012
NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Receiver Lance Moore and linebacker Jonathan Casillas will miss the New Orleans Saints' playoff opener against the Detroit Lions on Saturday night.
The Lions have not ruled out any player on Friday's final injury report, but did list safety Chris Harris as doubtful with a sore back.
Moore has been nursing a left hamstring injury for weeks and had a setback during the Saints' penultimate regular-season game against Atlanta on Dec. 26. He did not play in last Sunday's regular-season finale and did not practice this week.
Casillas, a regular in the linebacker rotation who started last Sunday, aggravated a right knee injury that had sidelined him for the three previous games.
Also listed as out for New Orleans is reserve tight end John Gilmore.
