  • Byrd was not placed on the Saints' active/PUP list for the first time in his three-year career in New Orleans, ESPN.com reports. Though healthy for the start of camp, Byrd did miss the entirety of the Saints' offseason program rehabbing the knee injury that has plagued him since inking a six-year, $54 million deal ahead of the 2014 season. Hopefully, for the Saints, Byrd's 2016 training camp presence will smoothly translate to an improved performance in the upcoming campaign for a New Orleans secondary that allowed the 31st-most passing yards in the NFL during 2015.

  • Saints' Jairus Byrd: First interception as a Saint
    By RotoWire Staff

    Byrd made seven tackles (four solo) and had an interception in Sunday's loss to the Texans. Remarkably, the interception was Byrd's first in two injury-plagued seasons in New Orleans. Byrd has also recently picked up his game in other areas, making a combined 22 tackles (15 solo) in his last three games. Keep in mind that strong safety Kenny Vaccaro primarily plays near the line of scrimmage, while Byrd plays much deeper at free safety, but Byrd is slowly becoming an option in deeper IDP leagues.

  • Saints safety Jairus Byrd (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. Byrd will likely hop right in as a starter alongside Kenny Vaccaro, but the Saints may monitor the three-time Pro Bowler's snaps. Although his track record from Buffalo is superb, Byrd has played just 15 games since the start of 2013 and four games since the beginning of 2014. He needs to re-prove that he's a useful IDP outside of very deep leagues.

  • Saints safety Jairus Byrd (knee) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, ESPN's reports. Though he's yet to log a full practice, Byrd is expected to make his 2015 debut Sunday night. Despite the name recognition, a wait-and-see approach makes sense in IDP leagues, and there's no guarantee Byrd is still the same player who earned Ed Reed comparisons in Buffalo.

  • Saints safety Jairus Byrd (knee) is out for Sunday's game in Carolina. Byrd will miss a third straight game to start the season, but he still hasn't been ruled out beyond Week 3. Kenny Phillips will likely get another start alongside Kenny Vaccaro.
