Snead left Sunday's game in Atlanta in order to be evaluated for a concussion, Josh Katzenstein of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Snead took a massive hit in the middle of the fourth quarter and was quickly shuttled to the locker. Although the offseason is right around the corner for the Saints, entering the concussion protocol would be an unwelcome outcome. In any case, Snead's health should be clarified by the Saints in due time.
Snead gathered in two of five targets for 21 yards in Saturday's 31-24 win over the Bucs.
Snead was a distant third behind Brandin Cooks and Michael Thomas in terms of wide receiver options for Drew Brees, a disappointing outcome after the second-year speedster had notched 14 receptions on 19 targets over the previous two games. The Ball State product nevertheless equaled his 2015 rookie season reception total (69) with Saturday's production, and has a new personal best in touchdowns (four) in 2016 as well.
Snead caught 8-of-11 targets for 76 yards in Sunday's win against the Cardinals.
That's now back-to-back productive weeks for the Saints' No. 3 receiver, but Snead should have had an even bigger day, as an apparent touchdown catch was ruled eventually incomplete, even though Snead held possession of the ball on his back for several seconds before an Arizona defender knocked it from his grasp. The call, however, was upheld on review, and the Saints would settle for a field goal two plays later. Still, Snead has come alive of late and while he will remain a risky play due to the spread-the-wealth nature of the Saints offense, he has plenty of upside in Week 16 at home against Tampa Bay.
Snead caught six of eight targets for 85 yards in Sunday's 16-11 loss to the Buccaneers.
Snead stepped up in the absence of Michael Thomas, leading the team in receptions and yardage while finishing second in targets. His usage has suffered at times this season because of the emergence of the aforementioned rookie, but he could enjoy an expanded role for the remainder of the year if the team elects to hold him out, now that the postseason is out of reach. Next week will bring a road matchup with the Cardinals.
Snead caught two passes on six targets for 38 yards in Sunday's loss to the Lions.
Snead once saw a decent number of targets -- he has at least five targets in all but one game this year -- but he was unable to connect with quarterback Drew Brees for most of the afternoon against Detroit. The Saints' No. 3 wide receiver has now been held to under 50 yards receiving in five straight contests, and while a touchdown is always possibly in New Orleans' typically potent offense, Snead is a risky play in Week 14 against the Buccaneers.
