Lofton (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday, the Saints' official site reports.
With seven more tackles on the ledger Monday against the Ravens, Lofton reached the 100-tackle threshold for the sixth year in a row. Because the Saints' upcoming opponent, the Steelers, boast a balanced offense, he's a great bet to put up his sixth double-digit tackle performance of the season.

Lofton had racked up double-digit stops in each of his previous two games, so Monday's performance was disappointing, particularly given the run-heavy nature of Baltimore's offense.

Even against the pass-happy Steelers in Week 13, Lofton should be almost an automatic start for IDP owners in most leagues.
