  • Saints' Carl Granderson: Will play Sunday

    Granderson (illness) will play Sunday against the Panthers, John DeShazier of the Saints' official site reports.

    Granderson cleared COVID protocols on Thursday, but he was considered questionable to play Sunday. He feels good enough to suit up though, and he should serve his usual rotational role on the Saints' defensive line Sunday against the Panthers.

  • Saints' Carl Granderson: Back in action

    Granderson (illness) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday.

    Granderson was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Dec. 25 after testing positive for the virus. As a result, he was forced to miss Monday's game against the Dolphins, however he is now in line to return for the Saints' Week 17 matchup against Carolina. Granderson should serve as a rotational defensive lineman, and he has two sacks across his last four games.

  • Saints' Carl Granderson: Added to COVID list

    Granderson (illness) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list after testing positive Saturday, Amie Just of reports.

    Granderson has played a consistent role as a rotational player on the Saints' defensive line this season, only missing Week 9 against the Falcons with a shoulder injury. The third-year pro will likely cede work to Albert Huggins on Monday against the Dolphins.

  • Saints' Carl Granderson: Back from shoulder injury

    Granderson (shoulder) will return to action Week 10 against Tennessee, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Granderson missed a Week 9 matchup against the Falcons but had previously been active in each of New Orleans' first seven games. While largely working in a backup capacity, Granderson hasn't had a multi-tackle game since Week 2.

  • Saints' Carl Granderson: Out Week 9

    Granderson (shoulder) will not play in the Saints' Week 9 matchup versus the Falcons.

    Granderson was a non-participant at practice all week due to a shoulder injury, so his absence Week 9 is not unexpected. As a result, Tanoh Kpassagnon and Payton Turner (calf) could potentially see some extra snaps backing up Cameron Jordan and Marcus Davenport on the edges.

  • Saints' Carl Granderson: Beefing up

    Granderson said Saturday that he's checking in at 277 pounds during training camp, Amie Just of reports.

    Formerly a developmental prospect out of Wyoming, Granderson has put on some weight since checking in at 6-foot-5 and 254 pounds as a 23-year-old at the 2019 NFL Combine. He reportedly weighed 270 pounds during last year's mini-breakout campaign in which Granderson racked up five sacks and two forced fumbles over 291 defensive snaps. Now even heavier, Granderson should remain a key rotational piece for the Saints as they attempt to replace Trey Hendrickson's production.

  • Saints' Carl Granderson: Two sacks in regular-season finale

    Granderson totaled two solo tackles -- both of them sacks -- in the Saints' 33-7 win over the Panthers on Sunday.

    It was a solid finish to the season for Granderson, who enjoyed a career year. The second-year defensive end provided 14 tackles (11 solo), five sacks and two forced fumbles as an NFL sophomore and will look to build on the strong campaign in 2021.

  • Saints' Carl Granderson: Second sack of season

    Granderson finished with one solo tackle and a sack in the Saints' 21-16 win over the Falcons on Sunday.

    Granderson recorded his first sack since Week 1, though his two on the season are a new career high for the second-year man. He's been largely absent from the box score this season, and Granderson isn't an IDP option for fantasy purposes.

  • Saints' Carl Granderson: Gets to quarterback in win

    Granderson finished with two tackles (two solo) and a sack in Sunday's 34-23 win over the Saints.

    The Wyoming product finished 2019 with just 11 tackles (eight solo) and one sack, so his Week 1 performance is certainly encouraging for his rest-of-season outlook. He'll look to take the next step forward this season and will get the Raiders up next in Week 2.

  • Saints' Carl Granderson: Records first sack of season

    Granderson totaled two tackles (both solo) and one sack in the Saints' 31-24 win over the Buccaneers on Sunday.

    Granderson made his 2019 debut in Week 4 against Dallas, playing less than 10 percent of defensive snaps. His role grew in Week 5, and he accounted for two solo tackles and a sack. He should continue to be involved in the Saints' defensive scheme moving forward.

  • Saints' Carl Granderson: Back on active roster

    Granderson is back on the Saints' 53-man roster after his roster exemption was lifted Monday, Rod Walker of reports.

    As part of the exemption, the Saints had a two-week window to decide whether to keep Granderson on the roster. The 22-year-old was able to attend meetings and participate in practice during that period. Granderson will take the roster spot that was left vacant after the team placed linebacker Alex Anzalone (undisclosed) on injured reserve.
