Breaux (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Friday, Herbie Teope of The Times-Picayune reports.
Breaux was only able to play in six games this season due to a broken fibula and now a shoulder problem. He recorded 21 tackles and one pass deflection when available. Expect B.W. Webb and Ken Crawley to see more snaps in his absence.
Breaux (shoulder) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Buccaneers.
A shoulder injury will keep Breaux on the sidelines for a second consecutive game Saturday. B.W. Webb got the bulk of the playing time in Breaux's absence in Week 15 and Ken Crawley also saw over 20 snaps.
Breaux (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup against the Cardinals.
Breaux injured his shoulder in Week 14's loss to the Buccaneers. While the severity of the issue was unknown at the time, it is serious enough to keep him sidelined in Week 15. B.W. Webb will presumably fill in at cornerback, while Ken Crawley and De'Vante Harris should see slightly increased roles providing depth at the position.
Breaux suffered a shoulder injury during Sunday's game at Tampa Bay, Josh Katzenstein of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Breaux logged exactly half (33 of 66) of the Saints' defensive snaps Sunday, resulting in three solo tackles, including a tackle for loss. If the range of motion on the afflicted shoulder is hindered moving forward, B.W. Webb is the logical candidate to fill in as one of the team's starting cornerbacks.
Breaux (fibula/ankle) practiced in full Wednesday.
Breaux has dealt with a fractured fibula this season, but finally appears completely healthy. He should be full-tilt for Sunday's game against the Rams.
