  • Nick Easton: Released by the Saints

    Easton was released by the Saints on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Easton started nine games overall during the 2020 season, but multiple concussions late in the campaign eventually landed him on injured reserve in January. Now cleared of his most recent head injury, the 28-year-old will now aim to earn a reserve role elsewhere.

  • Saints' Nick Easton: Won't play Sunday

    Easton (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's playoff game against the Bears, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Easton figures to be sidelined beyond Sunday's contest given the recency of the two concussions. Cesar Ruiz should be back at right guard for the Saints.
