Saints' Obum Gwacham: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Gwacham (undisclosed) was placed on the Saints' injured reserve list on Wednesday, The New Orleans Advocate reports.

It's uncertain how Gwacham was injured, but he was limited to just seven snaps on special teams Monday night without seeing the field once on defense. The Saints signed OL Khalif Barnes to fill his spot on the active 53-man roster.

Saints' Obum Gwacham: Deactivated Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gwacham (coach's decision) is inactive for the Saints' Week 2 contest against the Giants.

Buried on the depth chart along the defensive line, Gwacham is simply a healthy scratch this week.

Saints' Obum Gwacham: Gwacham could start at defensive end
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

With Hau'oli Kikaha suffering a potentially season-ending knee injury, Gwacham is a candidate to replace him as a starter at defensive end. Gwacham, who is up to 258 pounds after a 15-pound weight gain this offseason, has worked with the first-team defensive line unit since the start of OTAs in May, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Gwacham is a raw, developmental athlete who was drafted by the Seahawks in the sixth round out of Oregon State last year. He signed with the Saints after being waived by the Seahawks at the end of the 2015 preseason, and appeared in nine games for New Orleans, recording eight tackles, two forced fumbles and two and a half sacks. It's possible that the Saints will sign a veteran free agent to replace Kikaha, but Gwacham is an intriguing young talent who could make some noise in IDP leagues if he is able to secure the starting defensive end job opposite Cameron Jordan.
