    04/27/16DBJalen CollinsSuspensionSUSPENDCollins has been suspended for the first four games of the upcoming season for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.

    Collins is still eligible to partake in all offseason and preseason activities, but will have to miss the first quarter of the regular season. A second round selection last year, Collins was hoping to carve out a larger role in the Falcons' secondary this term, and although he very well may still, his absence will open opportunities for his teammates to begin the campaign.

    New Orleans Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    07/11/16LBDannell EllerbeUndisclosedPROBABLEEllerbe (undisclosed) said he will be 100 percent healthy for the start of training camp in late July, The Times-Picayune reports.

    Traded from Miami to New Orleans last year, Ellerbe had 39 tackles (34 solo) in six games, after playing just one game in his final season with the Dolphins. His injury struggles forced him to accept a pay cut in the offseason, even though he could still have a three-down role if he's able to stay healthy. There's been no indication he's dealing with anything serious, but he did miss some practices during OTAs and minicamp while nursing a couple of minor issues. If healthy, Ellerbe will likely join Stephone Anthony and James Laurinaitis in the base defense, but it's unclear which player would get most of the snaps next to Anthony in nickel packages.

    07/11/16DLCameron JordanBackPROBABLEJordan (back) practiced without limitations Thursday, Larry Holder of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Jordan underwent back surgery in February and wasn't expected to rejoin the team until training camp. However, Jordan was much farther ahead in his recovery than expected and was able to return to the practice field in full for the team's OTAs on Thursday. Jordan is coming off a 10-sack Pro Bowl season and with the back injury finally behind him, he'll have the chance to improve on his numbers.

    07/11/16DBKeenan LewisKneePROBABLELewis has been placed on the Saints' physically unable to perform list to start training camp, Mike Triplett of ESPN NFL Nation reports.

    Lewis had sports hernia surgery in January and took reps during offseason workouts, but the team has still placed hi on the PUP list, which comes as a bit of a surprise. He'll likely be able to play sometime in the preseason, but it's unclear when that will be. Look for Delvin Breaux and Damian Swann to see some extra reps while Lewis is kept out of practice.

    07/11/16LBTony StewardBackPROBABLESteward has been placed on injured reserve due to a back injury suffered in Sunday's win over Houston, BuffaloBills.com reports.

    Starter Nigel Bradham may not be able to make it back from his ankle injury this week. If that doesn't happen, the Bills would be down their top two guys at the inside linebacker spot next to Preston Brown.

    04/27/16DBP.J. WilliamsHamstringPROBABLEWilliams (hamstring) is competing for snaps at the nickel position in OTAs, Joel Erickson of the New Orleans Advocate reports.

    Williams lost his entire rookie season after suffering a torn hamstring during training camp last year. Now that he's healthy, the 2015 third rounder will have the chance to show why he was taken so high in the draft. Keenan Lewis (hip) and Delvin Breaux look to have the starting cornerback positions locked down, so Williams will compete with Damian Swann and Kyle Wilson for the nickel role, playing primarily in passing situations. Along with the third corner slot, Williams will likely be one of the team's primary backups, seeing extra time in the event of any injuries to the secondary during the season.
