Stupar (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Nick Underhill of The New Orleans Advocate reports. Stupar tore his ACL in Sunday's win over the Lions and his season officially is over. The linebacker played exclusively on special teams in his four games with the Saints, recording one tackle in four games.
Stupar suffered a season-ending knee injury in Sunday's victory over the Lions, Herbie Teope of The Times-Picayune reports. While Stupar simply provided depth on defense, the Saints will miss his special teams presence. The 29-year-old will now look to recover in time for the 2018 season.
Stupar (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Patriots. Stupar was a limited participant in practice throughout the week, but he'll ultimately be able to suit up and play through the hamstring issue. Starting outside linebacker Stephone Anthony (ankle) has been ruled out, so Stupar could be in line for additional snaps if Hau'oli Kikaha were to suffer an injury of his own as well.
Stupar (undisclosed) is not expected to play Thursday's preseason game against the Ravens, Herbie Teope of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. Stupar finished last season with a career-high 59 tackles, one sack and an interception. He's still behind A.J. Klein on the depth chart so it makes sense that the Saints are exercising caution in the final preseason game.
Stupar made seven tackles (all solo) and forced a fumble that he would also recover in Sunday's win against the 49ers. A week after making a diving interception, Stupar again made the most of his opportunities. With James Laurinaitis (quadriceps) being placed in Injured Reserve and Dannell Ellerbe (quadriceps) suffering a setback in his injury recovery, Stupar should continue to see significant playing time and he has quietly averaged seven tackles per games over the Saints' last five contests. He's worth a look in many IDP leagues.
