The New Orleans Saints are taking on the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12 of the NFL season. The Saints’ wide receiver depth has already been shortened, with Rashid Shaheed questionable to return with a thigh injury. Wide receiver Chris Olave went up for a reception and landed hard on the ground after missing it. He stayed down and is getting checked by trainers.

Olave has had a huge game for New Orleans. He has brought in seven of his nine targets for 114 yards. The Saints are already down Michael Thomas, who was added to injured reserve coming out of the team’s bye week. With Thomas, Olave and Shaheed not on the field, the main receivers will be Lynn Bowden Jr. and AT Perry.
