Keisel had missed practice the past week with a sore left hamstring and had been listed as doubtful. His absence comes on the heels of a torn triceps injury to end Aaron Smith, which has put him out indefinitely.
Saints cornerback Jabari Greer, who practiced all week, was nonetheless scratched by the Saints over concerns of how his injured left shoulder would respond to contact. Fellow starting cornerback Tracy Porter, who had arthroscopic surgery to repair the lateral meniscus in his left knee a month ago, was also inactive.
