New, comments
Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

The final injury report is out for the opening week match-up between Raiders vs Saints. Both teams have one player listed as officially OUT for the game. For the Raiders it's reserve right tackle Austin Howard who missed practice all week with an injured ankle. For the Saints it's linebacker Dannell Ellerbe.

Ellerbe's loss is more significant for the Saints as he is the team's starting weakside linebacker. Expecting to take his place in the lineup is former Raiders seventh round pick, Nathan Stupar.

Also on the injury report for the Saints, listed as questionable are tackle Terron Armstead, tight end Chris Manhertz (I mean, with a name like that...), and wide receiver Michael Thomas.
