  • Saints' Kaden Elliss: Leading tackler again Week 12

    Elliss logged 14 tackles (12 solo) during Sunday's 13-0 loss to the 49ers. Elliss recorded a game high in tackles as the Saints were shut out for the first time this season. The 27-year-old also started his third straight contest in place of Pete Werner, who has been sidelined since suffering an ankle injury Week 9 versus Baltimore. Elliss has set a new season high for tackles in each of these starts, totaling 33 tackles, 2.5 sacks and one pass defended over this span. He should continue to play a prominent role if Werner remains sidelined against the Buccaneers next Monday.

  • Saints' Kaden Elliss: Pops in second straight start

    Elliss collected 11 tackles (six solo), including 1.5 sacks, and one pass defended during Sunday's 27-20 win over the Rams. Elliss logged a team high in tackles while starting in place of injured linebacker Pete Werner (ankle) for the second game in a row. The 2019 seventh-round pick also increased his season sack total to 4.5, as the Saints' pass rush totaled four sacks against the Rams' depleted offensive line. Elliss has accumulated 18 tackles (nine solo), 2.5 sacks and one pass defended over the past two weeks, and his production will remain high so long as Werner stays sidelined. The 6-foot-3, 238-pounder should also have plenty of opportunities to increase his tackle numbers against the 49ers' diverse rushing scheme.

  • Saints' Kaden Elliss: Tests negative for COVID-19

    The Saints activated Elliss from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Amie Just of NOLA.com reports. Elliss may have been exposed to the virus, but negative test results mean he can return to team facilities. The 2019 seventh-round pick geared up in three games for the Saints last year, strictly in a special-teams role, before being placed on injured reserve with a knee injury. Elliss will compete for a similar role in 2020.

    Elliss (knee) is questionable to return to Sunday's game versus the Seahawks, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. The seventh-round rookie is learning the NFL ropes on special teams this year, so his absence will mainly hurt the defense's depth if he can't play in Week 4 versus the Cowboys.
