The Saints placed Davenport (shoulder) on injured reserve Friday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Davenport was forced from Week 1 action early with a pectoral injury that eventually was revealed to be a strain. Ultimately, he didn't practice this week before New Orleans made the decision to shut him down for at least the next three weeks. Davenport can return as early as Week 5 in Washington, but an ensuing bye week may spur the team to push his return back further. While Davenport is sidelined, Carl Granderson and Tanoh Kpassagnon (calf) will fill in at defensive end opposite Cameron Jordan.
Davenport (pectoral) did not practice Wednesday. Davenport remains without a clear timetable for a return to the field after exiting the team's Week 1 game with the injury. He hasn't yet been ruled out for Sunday's matchup against Carolina at this point, but it wouldn't be all that surprising if he ended up missing the contest.
Davenport was diagnosed with a pectoral strain after he underwent an MRI on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Davenport recorded three tackles (two solo) and a sack in Sunday's 38-3 win over the Packers, but he's expected to miss some time due to his pectoral injury. He doesn't have a clear timetable for his return, but the Saints are hopeful that the 2018 first-rounder will be back in action sooner rather than later.
Davenport (pectoral) had an MRI on Monday and is awaiting his results, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Davenport registered a sack during the Saints' impressive defensive performance Sunday, but New Orleans may be without its star pass rusher for Week 2. The 25-year-old has played in at least 11 games in each of his first three seasons in the league.
Davenport totaled three tackles and a quarterback hit during Monday's preseason game against Jacksonville. After putting together a strong performance in the preseason opener, Davenport was noticeably disruptive the entire first half. While the 24-year-old hasn't quite lived up to expectations since New Orleans traded up to make him a first-round pick in 2018, Davenport is healthy and he remains a strong breakout candidate in IDP formats.
