Okafor agreed to a deal with the Saints on Tuesday, Josh Katzenstein of NOLA.com reports. Okafor spent the last four seasons in Arizona, where he played outside linebacker in the Cardinals' 3-4 scheme. He recorded 13 tackles, 3.5 sacks and one forced fumble in 2016, and should provide needed help for the Saints at defensive end opposite Cameron Jordan. It is still possible that New Orleans will draft a defensive end with one of its two first-round picks in this year's draft, so it remains to be seen what Okafor's exact role will be this coming season.
Okafor (calf) is active for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Mark Dalton of the Cardinals' official site reports. Okafor ended up missing only one game due to his calf injury, and will now assumedly take on his normal position as a reserve linebacker for the Cardinals.
Okafor (calf) is questionable to play Sunday against the 49ers. Okafor was limited in practice this week by a strained calf. If he's ultimately unavailable, starter Chandler Jones may rarely leave the field.
Okafor (calf) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. This announcement is more of a formality as it was expected earlier in the week that Okafor would miss at least one game with his calf injury. His next chance to play will be after Arizona's bye week, against San Francisco in Week 10.
Okafor sustained a calf strain Sunday against the Seahawks and will miss at least one game, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. In his brief absence, Kareem Martin may be counted on to assume additional reps at linebacker.
