Saints offensive tackle Terron Armstead will miss his fifth consecutive game as the team has ruled him out for Monday night’s game against the Carolina Panthers, Josh Katzenstein of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Armstead (pectoral) was limited in practice on Thursday and Friday, but he did not participate on Saturday and will not play Monday in Charlotte. Every other Saints player participated fully on Saturday and will be available for the game.
Armstead, who suffered his injury in Week 10 against the Bengals, had the same practice schedule each of the past two weeks, participating in a limited fashion the first two days before sitting out the third session. Coach Sean Payton offered little clarity when asked about Armstead on Saturday.
“Look, each week we do what we think is best relative to his health, and we really just go from there,” Payton said.
