  • Saints' Marshon Lattimore: Generates 10 tackles

    Lattimore recorded 10 tackles (seven solo) during the Saints' 28-25 loss to the Vikings on Sunday. Lattimore was held without a tackle last week against Carolina, but he matched the second-highest tackle total of his career during Sunday's narrow loss in London. The 26-year-old has had a somewhat quiet start to the season, totaling 15 tackles (10 solo) and a pass defense over the Saints' first four games.

  • Saints' Marshon Lattimore: Impressive in coverage

    Lattimore racked up one solo tackle and six pass breakups during Sunday's win over Washington. Lattimore made up for a lack of production as a run stopper by his involvement in coverage, and he only needs two more pass breakups to tie his 2020 total. The cornerback isn't necessarily trustworthy as an every-week IDP asset, but he does play an every-down defensive role and possess a fairly high upside. Based on his performance against the Football Team, Lattimore earned NFC Defensive Player of the Week honors.

  • Saints' Marshon Lattimore: Busy day in win

    Lattimore recorded 10 tackles (eight solo) and an interception during Sunday's 28-13 win over the Patriots. Lattimore missed Week 2 with the thumb injury but returned to action Sunday, and he grabbed his first pick of the year, led the team in tackles and played all 72 defensive snaps. The 25-year-old shouldn't be expected to post double-digit tackle totals most weeks and has limited IDP value, though his overall impact on the New Orleans defense cannot be understated.

  • Saints' Marshon Lattimore: Making return in Week 3

    Lattimore (hand) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game in New England, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Lattimore's thumb injury sidelined him Week 2, but that will be the extent of his absence. The standout cornerback's return will likely further discourage the Patriots from throwing the ball downfield, so rookie quarterback Mac Jones should be in for another week of handing the ball off, and dinking and dunking when asked to throw it.

  • Saints' Marshon Lattimore: Inactive Week 2

    Lattimore (hand) will not play in Sunday's game against the Panthers, Mike Triplett of ESPN reports. Lattimore chipped a bone in his thumb last week against the Packers before undergoing surgery Tuesday.

His next chance will come in Week 3 against the Patriots.

  • Saints' Marshon Lattimore: Status in question for Sunday

    Lattimore (hand) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at Carolina, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports. Lattimore emerged from Week 1 with a chipped bone in his thumb that required surgery Tuesday. After sitting out Wednesday's practice, however, he made a surprise appearance on the field Thursday, when he logged a limited showing. Coach Sean Payton told Mike Triplett of ESPN.com on Friday that Lattimore likely will be a game-time call for Week 2, which now won't be known until 90 minutes before Sunday's 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff.

  • Saints' Marshon Lattimore: Already practicing again

    Lattimore (thumb) logged a limited practice Thursday, Amie Just of NOLA.com reports. Lattimore didn't practice Wednesday but was able to return to the practice field Thursday, just two days after getting surgery to address a chipped bone in his thumb. He was deemed week-to-week after the surgery, so Lattimore's status for Sunday's game against the Panthers remains up in the air, though his return to practice Thursday is certainly a step in the right direction.

  • Saints' Marshon Lattimore: Opts for surgery on thumb

    Lattimore will undergo surgery Tuesday to address a chipped bone in his thumb, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The Saints are viewing him as week-to-week. Lattimore helped shut down the Green Bay passing attack in New Orleans' season-opening 38-3 win and was rewarded with a lavish contract extension later that day, but Sunday didn't bring entirely good news for the star cornerback. Though he was nursing a knee injury heading into the opener, that's now a secondary concern after Lattimore sustained the thumb injury in the blowout victory. The Saints have yet to reveal how long Lattimore will be sidelined following surgery, but consider him doubtful, at best, for this weekend's game in Carolina.

  • Saints' Marshon Lattimore: Suffers serious thumb injury

    Lattimore will require surgery to repair a thumb injury he suffered in Sunday's Week 1 victory over Green Bay, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Lattimore was dealing with a knee injury heading into the team's Week 1 matchup, but he was ultimately healthy enough to play. His health was short-lived however, and he is now considered week-to-week. This unfortunate news overshadows the lucrative five-year, $97.6 million extension that Lattimore also signed Sunday.

  • Saints' Marshon Lattimore: Signs new deal

    Lattimore agreed to a five-year, $97.6 million extension with the Saints on Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Lattimore's new deal includes $68.3 million in guaranteed money.

  • Saints' Marshon Lattimore: Active Sunday

    Lattimore (knee) is listed as active Sunday against the Packers in Jacksonville. Lattimore appeared on the Saints' Week 1 injury report as limited Thursday due to a knee issue before he was cleared after a full practice Friday. The team downgraded him to questionable on Saturday, but it appears to have been a precautionary measure to make sure he was healthy. Lattimore will serve as New Orleans' unquestioned No. 1 cornerback opposite Desmond Trufant.

  • Saints' Marshon Lattimore: Another quality season

    Lattimore finished the 2020 season with 62 tackles (52 solo), 11 passes defended and two interceptions over 14 regular-season games. Lattimore provided another solid season and earned his third Pro Bowl nod in four seasons. Although he allowed a career-high seven touchdowns while in coverage, he was still an elite defender and has established himself as one of the best corners in the game. He'll return to New Orleans in 2021, where he'll look to add another solid season to his already-robust resume.

  • Saints' Marshon Lattimore: Unlikely to go Sunday

    Lattimore (abdomen), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons, isn't expected to play, Dianna Russini of ESPN reports. Lattimore hasn't been playing up to his usual standard this season, but his expected absence is still notable as the Saints look to slow down the Falcons' aerial attack. With Lattimore out of the lineup, Patrick Robinson will likely be pressed into a starting role for the first time since Week 5.

  • Saints' Marshon Lattimore: First interception of season

    Lattimore racked up eight tackles (seven solo), a tackle for a loss, a pass defended, and an interception in the Saints' 26-23 OT win over the Bears on Sunday. Lattimore hasn't had the best season to date, but he turned it around in this one, finishing second on the team in tackles and coming away with his first pick of the season. He'll have his work cut out for him in Week 9 when the Saints contend with Tampa Bay and the likes of Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, and new Buccaneers addition Antonio Brown.

  • Saints' Marshon Lattimore: Team-high six tackles

    Lattimore racked up six tackles (four solo) in the Saints' 27-24 win over the Panthers on Sunday. Lattimore tied for team lead in tackles Sunday, and he's now recorded at least that many tackles in three straight contests. Lattimore has struggled this season, failing to record a turnover and recording just one pass defended while giving up solid production to opposing wideouts. He'll look to improve in Week 8 against the Bears.

  • Saints' Marshon Lattimore: Limited Thursday

    Lattimore (hamstring) was a limited participant during the Saints' first practice session of the week Thursday. The two-time Pro Bowl cornerback was unable to suit up against the Lions on Sunday, but an upcoming Monday night kickoff for Week 5 provides extra time for Lattimore to recuperate. Lattimore had struggled mightily in coverage over his first three appearances of the season, surrendering a 72.7 percent completion rate and a 145.1 passer rating when targeted. If able to play Monday night, his quarterback assignment will be Justin Herbert, who owns a 5:3 TD:INT and is averaging more than 310 passing yards per game in his rookie season.

  • Saints' Marshon Lattimore: Downgrades to DNP

    Lattimore (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports. Lattimore was limited in Wednesday's practice, so his complete lack of participation Thursday signifies a step in the wrong direction. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that the starting cornerback tweaked his hamstring in practice, so his status heading into Sunday's game in Detroit will be worth monitoring closely.

  • Saints' Marshon Lattimore: Still not practicing

    Lattimore (hamstring) didn't practice Wednesday, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. Lattimore hasn't practiced since sustaining a Week 10 hamstring injury, so his status for Sunday's game against the Panthers is unfavorable. The Saints' secondary would take a major hit without Lattimore in the fold, affording P.J. Williams and Patrick Robinson increased roles.

  • Saints' Marshon Lattimore: Remains out Week 11

    Lattimore (hamstring) is ruled out for Sunday's game at Tampa Bay. Lattimore suffered the injury during last week's loss to the Falcons and was unable to practice this week. Patrick Robinson is expected to see increased snaps at cornerback for the Saints.

  • Saints' Marshon Lattimore: No practice Wednesday

    Lattimore (hamstring) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports. The third-year cornerback was deemed week-to-week after suffering a hamstring injury during this past Sunday's loss to the Falcons, and an absence from the first official practice of the week supports the notion it's unlikely he'll be ready for Week 11's clash against the Buccaneers. The Saints' secondary takes a major hit when Lattimore is out, and it appears Patrick Robinson will see an increase in usage.
