  2022 NFL Draft order, team needs: Saints leap six spots with loss to Buffalo, Jets with two top-5 picks Houston moves back up two spots to No. 2 overallBut first, each week, Ryan Wilson, Chris Trapasso and I produce mock drafts for CBSSports.com. In Wilson's latest, he has the Texans, Falcons and Saints taking quarterbacks in the first round. Trapasso has Pittsburgh quarterback Kenny Pickett skyrocketing up the board. It was almost a consensus that Oregon edge rusher Kayvon Thibodeaux would be taken No. 1 overall by the Lions.

The New Orleans Saints are scheduled to face off against the Buffalo Bills later Thanksgiving night.

New Orleans is trying to keep pace in a crowded NFC playoff race. However, the team has been without several star players in recent weeks and just hasn’t been able to get healthy at the right time.

Unfortunately, the Saints will be without arguably the team’s best player yet again tonight. Running back Alvin Kamara is dealing with a knee injury and will miss his second-straight game.

That’s not the only bad news for the Saints, though. According to the latest report from NFL insider Ian Rapoport, the team might be without backup running back Mark Ingram as well.

According to the report, Ingram is dealing with swelling in his knee and might not be able to play. Rapoport called it an “uphill battle” for Ingram to suit up on Thursday night.

Here’s the report.

If Ingram can’t go, the Saints will turn over the keys to third-string running back Tony Jones Jr. He flashed during the preseason, but hasn’t made much of an impact yet this season.

We’ll have to wait and see if Ingram can give it a go.

Saints' Taysom Hill signs unique four-year extension .
How much Hill ultimately earns will depend on where he spends the majority of his time as an offensive weapon for the Saints. According to Schefter, Hill's base salary is set at $40 million, but the veteran can earn an additional $55 million if he becomes New Orleans' starting quarterback while on his contract. Hill competed with Jameis Winston for the starting gig over the summer but ultimately lost the job to Winston, who went down to a season-ending torn ACL and damage to his MCL during a win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Halloween.
