Gio, Burfict ruled out for Saints

Linebacker Vontaze Burfict and running back Giovani Bernard have been ruled out for Sunday’s game at New Orleans, while right tackle Andre Smith (ankle) is listed as doubtful.

Burfict is still recovering from Oct. 29 arthroscopic knee surgery, and Bernard hasn’t played since suffering hip and clavicle injuries Oct. 26 against Baltimore.

Linebacker Rey Maualuga (hamstring) is listed as questionable, but he was a full participant at Friday’s practice and is expected to play after missing the last four games. Cornerback Terence Newman (knee) also is questionable but did not practice this week.

Tight end Jermaine Gresham (thigh), cornerback Leon Hall (concussion), safety Taylor Mays (foot), running back Cedric Peerman (knee) and offensive lineman Mike Pollak (knee) are probable.
