 Latest Saints Player Notes
Sep 21 2017 - Sterling Moore
  CB Sterling Moore (chest) was a limited participant after missing practice Wednesday.


Sep 21 2017 - Michael Hoomanawanui
  TE Michael Hoomanawanui (illness) did not participate in practice Thursday after practicing Wednesday.


Sep 21 2017 - John Kuhn
  FB John Kuhn was cut by the New Orleans Saints on Thursday, the second time in less than three weeks they released the veteran. New Orleans let Kuhn go because it needed the roster space after signing defensive lineman Kendall Langford, per the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Kuhn was released by the Saints on Sept. 3 and re-signed three days later. He appeared in both games for winless New Orleans (0-2), rushing once for two yards. The 35-year-old Kuhn, in his 12th NFL season, joined the Saints on a one-year deal during the 2016 training camp after spending nine seasons with the Green Bay Packers.


Sep 20 2017 - Trey Hendrickson
  DE Trey Hendrickson (knee) was limited in practice.


Sep 20 2017 - Zach Strief
  T Zach Strief (knee) did not participate in practice.


Sep 20 2017 - Terron Armstead
  T Terron Armstead (shoulder) did not participate in practice.


Sep 20 2017 - Sterling Moore
  CB Sterling Moore (chest) did not participate in practice.


Sep 20 2017 - Marshon Lattimore
  CB Marshon Lattimore (concussion) did not participate in practice Wednesday.


Sep 20 2017 - Thomas Morstead
  P Thomas Morstead has been one of the few bright spots for New Orleans. He has averaged 48.7 yards per punt and his net average of 46.8 is second-best in the NFL.


Sep 20 2017 - Darryl Tapp
  DE Darryl Tapp, who made the 53-man roster but was released shortly before the season opener, was re-signed by the Saints.


Sep 18 2017 - Wil Lutz
  K Wil Lutz extended his streak of consecutive field goals made to 20 by making his first six field-goal attempts of the season before his 49-yard attempt in the third quarter bounced off the right upright.


Sep 18 2017 - Kenny Vaccaro
  S Kenny Vaccaro was benched during Sunday's game and his days in New Orleans could be numbered. Vaccaro was removed from the game in favor of Vonn Bell in the third quarter. Vaccaro returned briefly when Bell was shaken up, but returned to the sideline as soon as Bell returned to the game.


Sep 14 2017 - Trey Hendrickson
  DL Trey Hendrickson, who missed the opener because of illness, returned to practice, but wore a red non-contact jersey and was limited.


Sep 14 2017 - Nathan Stupar
  LB Nate Stupar, who missed the opener because of a strained hamstring he sustained in the final preseason game, returned to practice but was limited.


Sep 12 2017 - *Marcus Williams
  SS Marcus Williams also got a start in his first NFL game. He is a second-round draft choice from Utah.


Sep 12 2017 - Wil Lutz
  K Wil Lutz provided all of the scoring for the Saints until late in the fourth quarter as he made all four of his field-goal attempts.


Sep 12 2017 - *Alex Anzalone
  LB Alex Anzalone started at weak-side linebacker ahead of Craig Robertson, the Saints' leading tackler last season. Anzalone is a rookie third-round draft choice from Florida.


Sep 12 2017 - Coby Fleener
  TE Coby Fleener was one of the few bright spots for New Orleans. Fleener, who had a disappointing first season with the Saints after signing as a free agent from Indianapolis in 2016, caught a team-high five passes for 54 yards and scored the Saints' only touchdown.


Sep 12 2017 - Zach Strief
  RT Zach Strief is expected to be sidelined a few weeks after sustaining an MCL sprain in his left knee during Monday's 29-19 loss to the Minnesota Vikings, according to multiple reports. An MCL sprain typically is a four-week injury, which means Strief could be sidelined through the team's Week 5 bye.


Sep 12 2017 - Adrian Peterson
  RB Adrian Peterson was not effective in his return to Minnesota. Peterson got the first two carries of the game and picked up a first down, but he was silent afterward. Peterson, who is Minnesota's all-time rushing leader with 11,747 yards, finished with six carries for 18 yards in a timeshare with Mark Ingram and rookie Alvin Kamara. "It felt pretty good," Peterson said of his first two carries. "I didn't really know what to expect coming in. We talked about running the ball a little more, but for whatever reason got away from it. That's how the game played out. Their defense came out and played well. It is what it is."


Sep 12 2017 - Drew Brees
  QB Drew Brees completed 27 of 37 pass attempts for 291 yards and one touchdown against Minnesota. The Saints kicked field goals on their first four trips to the red zone before Brees connected with TE Coby Fleener for an 8-yard touchdown with 1:56 left in the game.


Sep 11 2017 - Zach Strief
  RT Zach Strief left New Orleans' game at Minnesota in the second quarter with a leg injury. He did not return.


Sep 9 2017 - Zach Wood
  LS Zach Wood was signed by the Saints to replace Jon Dorenbos, who will require open heart surgery to repair an aortic aneurysm. The 6-3, 255-pound Wood entered the league in 2016 as an undrafted free agent out of SMU. Wood, 24, signed with the Cowboys after a successful tryout in rookie minicamp that year and spent time with the team the past two offseasons both as a long snapper and defensive lineman.


Sep 6 2017 - David Parry
  DT David Parry is a player the Saints have had their eye on ever since the Colts picked him in the fifth round of the 2015 draft. He went on to start all 32 games in his first seasons, but Parry, who was placed on two years of probation after pleading guilty to two counts in relation to his February arrest for assault in Scottsdale, Ariz., was released by Indianapolis. New Orleans signed him to the practice roster.


Sep 6 2017 - Trey Edmunds
  RB Trey Edmunds was perhaps the biggest surprise to make the Saints opening-day roster, but his value on special teams was too great for the team to ignore. "He was exceptional in the kicking game," head coach Sean Payton said. "You know you're going to receive 18, 20 snaps from this guy in all phases."


Sep 6 2017 - Taysom Hill
  QB Taysom Hill is on the Saints active roster after the team claimed him on waivers from Green Bay. "He has a good arm and he has the poise you're looking for," Saints head coach Sean Payton said of the undrafted rookie. "When you're watching him, it doesn't look like you're watching a first-year player."


Sep 6 2017 - Austin Carr
  WR Austin Carr went from being released by the Patriots to being signed by the Saints to having a chance to play in the season opener in just a few days. The three-game suspension of Willie Snead IV means Carr could play if he gets up to speed mentally. "It was a roller coaster," Carr said. "But now that I'm here I want to contribute. It's a matter of burying my nose in (the playbook.)"


Sep 6 2017 - Max Unger
  C Max Unger said he's ready to start the season opener Monday at Minnesota after missing most of the offseason and preseason because of foot surgery. He returned to game action for the preseason finale against Baltimore on Aug. 31. "The last couple of weeks of training camp, the last preseason game and this week leading up to the opener it's all been full go," Unger said. "My conditioning feels great."


Sep 6 2017 - Bryce Harris
  T Bryce Harris was re-signed two days after being released as part of the cutdown to 53 players. He is the only healthy backup tackle on the active roster.


Sep 6 2017 - Tommylee Lewis
  WR Tommylee Lewis figures to see extended playing time because of the three-game suspension of Willie Snead IV. Of the backups, Lewis best fits the mold of a speedy target for Drew Brees on the quick timing routes that Snead excels in.


Sep 6 2017 - Delvin Breaux
  CB Delvin Breaux (fibula) was placed on injured reserve with a designation to return during the season. He'll be eligible to practice after six weeks and play two weeks after that.


Sep 1 2017 - David Parry
  DT David Parry is another defensive player who could be fighting to make the regular-season roster. Parry was involved in a publicized off-field legal incident during the off-season and has been trying to work himself back into the good graces of the Colts' front office and coaching staff. A third-year defensive lineman from Stanford, Perry was a consistent contributor his first two seasons in the league.


Sep 1 2017 - Willie Snead
  WR Willie Snead of the New Orleans Saints was suspended for the first three games of the regular season for violating the league's personal conduct policy. The suspension resulted from an offseason DUI charge. Snead was originally suspended four games, but that was reduced to three after appeal. Snead had 72 receptions for 894 yards and four touchdowns last season, when he played in 15 games, including four starts.


Sep 1 2017 - Travaris Cadet
  RB Travaris Cadet, who fell behind Daniel Lasco and Darius Victor in the competition for the fourth and final running-back position midway through the preseason, had plenty of opportunities to show what he could do in the final preseason game. He rushed five times for 22 yards, caught six passes for 51 yards and returned five punts for 37 yards, finishing with 110 all-purpose yards.


Sep 1 2017 - Al-Quadin Muhammad
  Rookie sixth-round draft choice DE Al-Quadin Muhammad is also a strong candidate to make the roster. He had at least a half a sack in each preseason game and led the team with four. "It is going to be important for him to play early in the kicking game and coverage units," head coach Sean Payton said.


Sep 1 2017 - Adam Bighill
  Rookie LB Adam Bighill was a long shot to make the team when training camp started, but after a standout preseason he might just make it. He made at least one big play in every game and had a game-high 11 tackles and two pass break-ups in the preseason finale. The 5-foot-10 CFL alumnus could still get caught in a numbers game at linebacker, but his chances are much better than they were. "I did the best that I could out there," Bighill said. "I floated, flying around and made plays. At the end of the day, I gave it all I had. I know I can play in this league and help this team win."


Aug 29 2017 - Terron Armstead
  T Terron Armstead appears ahead of schedule in his return from June shoulder surgery and therefore likely wont go on injured reserve, coach Sean Payton said. Armstead, who originally was expected to miss half the season, figures to stay on the Physically Unable to Perform list until he's ready.


Aug 29 2017 - Max Unger
  C Max Unger, who returned to practice last week after undergoing offseason foot surgery, will make his preseason debut Thursday.


Aug 29 2017 - Adrian Peterson
  RB Adrian Peterson's appearance in the preseason game against Houston was his first preseason action since 2013 and he carried the football in a preseason game for the first time since 2011. So, he said, his six carries were "good work." Peterson finished with 15 yards rushing.


Aug 28 2017 - Nathan Stupar
  LB Nate Stupar, who sustained what appeared to be a leg injury against the Texans, did not practice Monday.


Aug 28 2017 - Ryan Ramczyk
  T Ryan Ramczyk, who sat out the preseason game against Houston last Saturday because of an undisclosed injury, returned to practice Monday.


Aug 25 2017 - Coby Fleener
  TE Coby Fleener has missed several practices recently to be with his wife, who recently gave birth, head coach Sean Payton said. "These next few weeks will be important for him," Payton said. "I feel like with the time missed, it's hard to give a proper evaluation just because he hasn't played as many snaps."


Aug 25 2017 - Max Unger
  C Max Unger started practicing this week after being activated from the PUP list. He had offseason foot surgery and the Saints hope to get him game action in the preseason and have him ready to start the season opener Sept. 11 at Minnesota. "He's on schedule," head coach Sean Payton said. "He's going to play in one of these preseason games, maybe both of them. But I'm going to see how he does in these first few days back, but he's doing well."


Aug 22 2017 - Coby Fleener
  Two players who usually are limited to first-half action in preseason games -- WR Willie Snead IV and TE Coby Fleener -- played in the fourth quarter against the Chargers. Both had missed time because of injuries and head coach Sean Payton was looking to get their workload up to par. In addition to both players missing practice time, Snead played just 10 snaps and Fleener didn't play at all in the opener.


Aug 22 2017 - Willie Snead
  Two players who usually are limited to first-half action in preseason games -- WR Willie Snead IV and TE Coby Fleener -- played in the fourth quarter against the Chargers. Both had missed time because of injuries and head coach Sean Payton was looking to get their workload up to par. In addition to both players missing practice time, Snead played just 10 snaps and Fleener didn't play at all in the opener.


Aug 22 2017 - Chris Banjo
  S Chris Banjo solidified his case for a roster spot with an outstanding performance on special teams against the Chargers. He had four special teams tackles (three solo) and made a tackle on defense.


Aug 22 2017 - Marshon Lattimore
  CB Marshon Lattimore started against the Chargers after missing the first game because of injury. He played 17 snaps and did not see the ball thrown his way, though he did fall to the ground after being faked by Chargers RB Melvin Gordon on a running play.


Aug 22 2017 - Ryan Ramczyk
  Rookie T Ryan Ramczyk saw his first NFL action when he started against the Chargers and his block helped spring RB Alvin Kamara on a 50-yard touchdown run. The Saints are hoping Ramczyk, chosen with the final pick in the first round of the draft, proves capable of handling the left-tackle spot that belonged to Terron Armstead before Armstead underwent shoulder surgery that will sideline him for at least half the season. Ramczyk missed the first preseason game because of injury, then played 25 snaps and mostly held his own against Los Angeles even though he faced both Melvin Ingram and Joey Bosa. "I think it just really hammers in the fact that you need to be sound with technique every single play," Ramczyk told NOLA.com|The Times-Picayune of his first NFL experience. "There was a couple times I may have gotten away from that, and it showed."


Aug 22 2017 - Alvin Kamara
  The Saints thought highly enough of University of Tennessee RB Alvin Kamara to trade up in the third round of the draft last April to make sure they could get him. But with Mark Ingram coming off his first 1,000-yard season and the signing of future Hall of Famer Adrian Peterson, Kamara's role as a rookie figures to be somewhat limited. Nonetheless, with Ingram and Peterson sitting out the first two preseason games, Kamara has shown that he's capable of handling a significant role if given the opportunity. He ran 50 yards for a touchdown on New Orleans' first offensive play against the Chargers, finishing the game with five carries for 61 yards and a 22-yard reception. Kamara also had a 22-yard run in the exhibition opener at Cleveland.


Aug 20 2017 - Taysom Hill
  QB Taysom Hill, No. 4 on the depth chart, was expected to be just a camp body. But the former BYU standout has become a real contender to make the Packers' 53-man roster. In Green Bay's first preseason game, Hill had a perfect quarterback rating of 158.3. In the Packers' win over Washington, Hill had a 23-yard touchdown run with 6:16 left that provided the winning points in Green Bay's 21-17 victory. "Taysom played very well," coach Mike McCarthy said. "I feel like I've said that seven times already, but he played very well.
