Vaccaro injured his ankle in Week 2's loss to the Giants, and subsequently missed the following game. He indicated his absence was more of a coaching decision however, as he felt he could have played through it. The starting strong safety appears to be on track for a return Sunday.
Vaccarol (ankle) is listed as inactive for Monday's game against the Falcons, Josh Katzenstein of The Times-Picayune reports.
Vaccaro recorded nine tackles and a forced fumble in Week 2's loss to the Giants, but also came out of the game with an ankle injury. He was unable to practice throughout the week, which ultimately led to a questionable designation for Monday's contest. Roman Harper figures to fill in for Vaccaro in his absence.
Vaccaro was able to take the practice field on Saturday after failing to do so on both Thursday and Friday. Should he be ruled out prior to kickoff, Roman Harper figures to slide into the starting lineup.
Vaccaro was for the most part healthy during Week 2's loss to the Giants, as he recorded nine tackles, but suffered an ankle injury during the contest, missed some plays, and then returned to finish. The specifics are still unknown, but look for more information to be released as Sunday approaches. If the safety is ultimately ruled out, look for veteran Roman Harper to start.
While Vaccaro doesn't rack up many sacks or break up many passes, he continues to be a solid source of tackles from the safety position. Fantasy owners in IDP leagues should continue to start him with confidence.
