Saints' Alvin Kamara: May see snaps at wide receiver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

During portions of practice in last week's minicamp, Kamara would split off and work with the receivers instead of the running backs, reports Mike Triplett of ESPN.com.

Kamara has impressed during minicamp and OTAs, and the Saints were thrilled to land the Tennessee product with the 67th pick in this year's draft, viewing him as a pass-catching "joker" back in the mold of Darren Sproles and Reggie Bush. In fact, the Saints appear to even be considering lining Kamara up at receiver at times in order to get him on the field as much as possible. With both Mark Ingram and Adrian Peterson ahead of him on the depth chart, it seems unlikely that the rookie will receive many carries, but Kamara should slide into a pass-catching role in the Saints' high-powered offense, which makes him an interesting sleeper in PPR leagues.

Saints' Chris Watt: Heading to New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watt (knee) signed a contract with the Saints on Monday.

Watt was waived by the Chargers, where he was selected in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft, halfway through last season as he missed the entire year with a knee injury. He'll now compete for a reserve role on the Saints offensive line.

Saints' Dan Arnold: Lands on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints placed Arnold (undisclosed) on injured reserve Friday.

Arnold was waived/injured Thursday due to an unspecified injury. However, he cleared waivers and in turn reverted to the Saints' injured reserve list. Unless Arnold somehow becomes one of the two players the team activates off IR this season, he's likely stuck there until the end of the 2017 campaign.

Saints' Terron Armstead: Suffers torn labrum
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstead will have surgery Monday to repair a torn labrum that will keep him sidelined for four-to-six months, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

Armstead's injury is a crushing blow to the Saints offense, as the 25-year-old is already one of the NFL's best left tackles and also quarterback Drew Brees' blindside protector. His injury reportedly occurred during Wednesday's practice session and tests Thursday confirmed the unfortunately serious nature of his ailment. Given Armstead's extended timetable, he's likely to miss at least the first half of the upcoming campaign, which could force the Saints to turn to rookie first-rounder Ryan Ramczyk to fill his absence.
