The New Orleans Saints are battling through a laundry list of injuries heading into Week 7. Given the short turnaround to appear on Thursday Night Football, it's looking unlikely for several players to suit up.

Now one member of the offensive line is expected to join them.

Guard Andrus Peat is dealing with a strained pectoral muscle and considered "week-to-week", according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The insider believes this "indicates" Peat will be sidelined on Thursday.

This is just another blow to an already severely banged-up Saints offense. Quarterbacks Jameis Winston and Andy Dalton are both nursing injuries, with the former unlikely to play in Week 7. The wide receiver corps isn't much healthier, as Michael Thomas and Jarvis Landry haven't practiced so far, putting their availability for this matchup against the Arizona Cardinals in serious doubt.

Now New Orleans could be down Peat for this game and potentially longer given he's on a week-to-week basis. He's only allowed one sack this season across 276 snaps played this season, according to ProFootballFocus.

It remains to be seen which members of the offense ultimately sit out Week 7 against the Cardinals. Due to their injury woes, the Saints enter this contest as 2.5-point road underdogs, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
