  • Saints' Marcus Davenport: Will play Sunday

    Davenport (ankle) will play against the Falcons on Sunday, Mike Triplett of reports.

    Davenport didn't practice for part of the week, but he feels well enough to suit up in a pivotal game for the Saints' season. He should draw the start on the edge of the Saints' defensive line, as usual.

  • Saints' Marcus Davenport: DNP on Thursday

    Davenport (ankle) did not practice Thursday.

    The defensive end appears to have left the Saints' Week 17 win over the Panthers a little worse for wear, causing him to miss each of the first two practices of the week with an ankle injury. Davenport still has one more opportunity to make it onto the practice field Friday, but if he can't play in Week 18 against the Falcons, Jalyn Holmes could end up starting in his place.

  • Saints' Marcus Davenport: Won't play Thursday

    Davenport (shoulder) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against Dallas.

  • Saints' Marcus Davenport: Yet to practice

    Davenport (shoulder) has been a non-particpant at practice for consecutive days to start the week.

  • Saints' Marcus Davenport: Gets to quarterback twice

    Davenport recorded three tackles and two sacks in Sunday's 23-21 loss to the Titans.

    Davenport's sacks came at key points in the game and kept the Saints within striking distance of the Titans. He first took down Ryan Tannehill for a seven-yard loss early in the third quarter, a stop that led directly to a punt. He stalled another Tennessee drive early in the fourth quarter by sacking Tannehill and forcing a field goal rather than a potential game-sealing touchdown. Davenport now has four sacks on the season, which is tied for the team lead.

    Davenport registered a season-high six tackles Sunday, while also notching his second sack of the season. The 25-year-old defensive end also forced Mike Davis to fumble on the Falcons' final drive, but the running back was able to regain control of the ball, which ultimately saved Atlanta's game-winning drive.

  • Saints' Marcus Davenport: Out at least three weeks

    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.

  • Saints' Marcus Davenport: Sidelined to start week

    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.
