    04/27/16QBDrew BreesFootPROBABLEThe agent for Brees (foot) and Saints' general manager Mickey Loomis have talked about a contract extension, which head coach Sean Payton thinks "will get done very easily," reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

    Brees' contract is not set to expire until 2017, but an extension would permit the team to lower his huge salary cap number and presumably allow the Saints to be more active in free agency. Further reading between the lines, the fact that there has been no recent mention of the torn plantar fascia he suffered at the end of last season is likely a good sign for Brees' offseason prognosis. As such, there is little reason to believe that Brees will not be healthy and ready for action when official offseason training activities begin later this spring.

    04/27/16RBMark IngramShoulderPROBABLEThe Saints restructured Ingram's (shoulder) contract Wednesday, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports.

    Ingram parlayed a career-high 964 rushing yards and nine touchdowns in 2014 into a four-year contract last March. On pace to break those marks this past season, he played through a shoulder concern in Weeks 12 and 13, before the Saints discovered that a torn left rotator cuff was to blame. Surgery was quickly ordered up, ending his season with 769 yards and six touchdowns on the ground. He further expanded his game, though, with career bests in receptions (50) and receiving yards (405). Following the adjustment to his contract, a portion has been tabbed as a signing bonus, with the remaining to be spread across the years left on the deal.

    04/27/16DLCameron JordanBackPROBABLEJordan recently underwent a minor arthroscopic procedure on his lower back, ESPN.com reports.

    Jordan carried a lingering back injury through most of last season, causing him to miss practice time over the course of the campaign. Still, the Pro Bowler managed to post 10 sacks in 2015, and is averaging exactly that many over his last three seasons. Despite his recent operation, Jordan is expected to make a full recovery in time for training camp.

    04/27/16DBKeenan LewisKneePROBABLELewis underwent hip surgery Monday, The New Orleans Advocate reports.

    Lewis was placed on season-ending injured reserve recently due to hip and knee complications, and had surgery on his hip labrum Monday to correct that ailment. The veteran will now aim to get healthy ahead of next season, while the Saints' porous defense tries to at least finish this season respectfully.

    04/27/16RBMarcus MurphyAnklePROBABLEMurphy (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports.

    The Saints' backfield has taken hits in quick session over the last week, with Murphy joining Mark Ingram (shoulder) and Khiry Robinson (leg) on injured reserve. While Murphy had just one carry in his rookie season, he served as the Saints' primary returner, racking up 25.0 yards per kickoff return and 9.3 yards per punt return. In his stead, C.J. Spiller will likely take on a portion of those duties.

    (Updated 12/16/2015)
    04/27/16RBC.J. SpillerLegPROBABLESpiller (leg) gained 112 yards on 36 carries and 239 yards on 34 receptions in 13 games in his first season with the Saints.

    2015 was an unmitigated disaster for Spiller, as he failed to meet fantasy owners' high expectations after signing with the Saints this offseason. Rather than serving as the Saints' backfield pass-catching option, a la Reggie Bush or Darren Sproles, Spiller missed nearly all of training camp following arthroscopic knee surgery and struggled to earn playing time after he returned to health. Spiller is still under contract for another three years, but with Mark Ingram emerging as a receiver and Tim Hightower exploding back onto the NFL scene, not to mention the possible return of Khiry Robinson, Spiller will likely enter a crowded Saints' backfield in 2016.

    04/27/16DBP.J. WilliamsHamstringPROBABLEThe Saints placed cornerback P.J. Williams on injured reserve, reports NFL.com. Williams will miss the rest of the season after tearing his hamstring. He was a third-round pick in 2015.
    Arizona Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    04/27/16DBJustin BethelFootPROBABLEBethel underwent surgery to repair a fractured foot this week, which is expected to sideline the cornerback during OTAs, the Arizona Republic reports.

    Bethel reportedly played through a "slight" fracture in the foot last season, yet he was forced into a starting role following Tyrann Mathieu's torn ACL in Week 15. In the following four contests (including playoffs), Bethel totaled 25 tackles (24 solo), four passes defended, and one interception. With Jerraud Powers exploring free agency, Bethel is currently penciled in as the starting cornerback opposite Patrick Peterson (ankle), but the upcoming NFL Draft and his recovery may impact his current standing.

    04/27/16DBTyrann MathieuKneeQUESTIONABLEMathieu isn't targeting a specific date for his return to the field from a torn ACL in his right knee, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports. "I don't really want to rush it," Mathieu said recently. "Whenever I'm comfortable, that's when I want to go out there."

    Mathieu's cautious approach has basis in fact, as the injury that ended his rookie season in 2013 (ACL and LCL tears in his left knee) sapped his effectiveness in the subsequent campaign. Fortunately for the defensive back, this particular recovery effort has been "so much easier" when compared with his previous rehabilitation. While his activity level was non-existent in the aftermath of the first surgery, he's already progressed to running on a treadmill in a harness, and there's a belief that he's only a few months away from wearing a helmet and kicking off football drills. No matter the path he takes, the offseason may include a contract extension at some point after he achieved the first Pro Bowl and All-Pro bids of his career this past season.

    04/27/16TEIfeanyi MomahKneePROBABLEMomah (knee) will be returning to the Cardinals in 2016, as the exclusive rights free agent was tendered a contract Thursday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

    Momah showed promise throughout his first preseason with the Cardinals, but a torn meniscus suffered on the eve of the regular season resulted in a stay on injured reserve. Following Thursday's move, head coach Bruce Arians will thus get another look at the tight end, who will join Darren Fells, Troy Niklas, and Gerald Christian, at least, in the offseason program.

    (Updated 03/03/2016)
    04/27/16DBPatrick PetersonAnklePROBABLEPeterson's recovery from right ankle surgery is expected to encompass 6-to-8 weeks, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

    With knowledge of his recovery timetable coming to the fore, Peterson is a candidate to miss the entire offseason program, despite optimism that OTAs could be in his future in the aftermath of this week's procedure. Even if he fails to take the field before training camp, he's hopeful that he'll avoid any of the recurring issues from the past two campaigns, though his ironman status as a professional remains intact.
