Te'o (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bengals. It will be a second straight DNP for Te'o, who's logged just 12 tackles (eight solo) and one pass defensed this season. The Saints' defensive scheme seems to be largely responsible for Te'o's absence from the gameday roster the last two contests, as New Orleans has been deploying two-linebacker alignments on a frequent basis.
Te'o (knee) is questionable for Monday's game against the Redskins, Josh Katzenstein of NOLA.com reports. Te'o has missed the past two weeks with a knee injury. If he is unable to go Monday, middle linebacker duties will likely be handled by some combination Alex Anzalone, Vince Biegel and Craig Robertson.
Te'o (knee) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants, Joel A. Erickson of The New Orleans Advocate reports. Te'o will miss his second consecutive regular-season game while recovering from a knee injury. The veteran linebacker's workload will be split between Alex Anzalone and Vince Biegel, who stand to split snaps at the middle linebacker position.
Te'o had four tackles (three solo) in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers. He played 27 of the Saints' 66 defensive snaps. While Demario Davis played every defensive snap, Te'o, A.J. Klein (25 snaps) and Alex Anzalone (34 snaps) each saw a roughly equal amount of playing time in the opener, with only Anzalone -- who had a forced fumble -- doing much of note in an ugly defensive performance. It's only one week so it may be too early to rush to judgment, but if Klein, Te'o and Anzalone continue to split snaps, it may be difficult for IDP owners to trust any Saints linebacker except Davis.
Te'o made seven tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 31-19 win against the Jets. With normal starting middle linebacker A.J. Klein sidelined with a groin injury, Te'o played every defensive snap for the Saints. Klein was unable to practice at all last week, so there's a decent chance that he will miss Week 16 as well. If that's the case, expect Te'o to again garner the starting nod in Klein's absence versus a Falcons team Te'o notched 10 tackles against just a couple of weeks ago.
