Defensive end Jadevion Clowney was sidelined with a concussion in the first half of the game against the Ravens. He sat all week while Clowney worked on his concussion protocol, so it’s no surprise that Clowney was ruled out for this game against the Saints.

A week ago, Alex Wright and Chase Winovich were replaced on possession after Clowney went down. After another healthy scratch last week, expect Isaiah Thomas to do well in this game.
