The New Orleans Saints received a timely boost ahead of their divisional round showdown with the Seattle Seahawks this weekend with the news that cornerback Keenan Lewis is available for the game.
Lewis, a key man in helping the Saints see off wildcard opponents the Philadelphia Eagles last week, was forced from the field during that game after suffering a concussion.
However he took a full part in training on Wednesday, meaning he is likely to take to the field in Seattle on Saturday.
While there was good news with Lewis, their chances of having running back Pierre Thomas look slim.
He's still feeling the effects of a chest injury, whole Guard Jahri Evans (ankle) and defensive end Akiem Hicks (ankle) both took a limited part in training on Wednesday and remain 50/50 to take on the Seahawks.
The Saints travel to Seattle hoping to gain revenge for their regular season defeat against the Seahawks.
Sean Payton's team could do little as they fell to a 34-7 defeat early on in December, and will be hoping they can be more competitive this time round.
