  • Mitchell Loewen: Let go by Saints

    Loewen has been waived by the Saints, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

    Loewen was let go to make room on the team's 90-man roster for the signing of Ty Montgomery. The 27-year-old Loewen spent the majority of 2019 on New Orleans' practice squad. He will now try to find a new opportunity.

  • Mitchell Loewen: Waived by Saints

    Loewen was released by New Orleans on Tuesday, Rod Walker of The Times-Picayune reports.

    Loewen finished Monday's 30-28 win over Houston with a pair of solo tackles, helping the Saints start the 2019 season off on the right foot. But with David Onyemata (suspension) returning to the fold, Loewen was expendable, so the team opted to waive the 26-year-old to make room for Onyemata's return. Loewen played 11 snaps in Monday's game.

    Loewen was waived by the Saints on Dec. 27, and finds a home in Detroit just one day later. His spot on the 53-man roster comes following the placement of A'Shawn Robinson (knee) on injured reserve. Expect Loewen to serve a depth role during Sunday's season-finale tilt against the Packers.

  • Saints' Mitchell Loewen: Ready to go

    Loewen (neck) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Rams.

    Loewen hasn't seen any action since Week 2, but he could be active for the Week 9 matchup with the Saints down a defensive end in Marcus Davenport (toe). Even if Loewen suits up, he likely wouldn't be in line for many snaps as the clear No. 4 end in the rotation behind Cameron Jordan, Alex Okafor and Trey Hendrickson.

    Loewen (neck) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

    Loewen is nursing a neck injury and he remains without a timeline for his recovery. The depth defensive end's absence is unlikely to affect New Orleans' defense, but it could cause additional special teams snaps to be made available.

  • Saints' Mitchell Loewen: Rebounds from ankle surgery

    Loewen (ankle) has returned to full health after undergoing surgery earlier this season, Nick Underhill of The Baton Rouge Advocate reports.

    Loewen is healthy and able to run again after suffering a high-ankle sprain in the Saints' Week 2 loss to New England. The converted linebacker who went undrafted out of Arkansas looks to persevere through a plethora of injuries (including a Lisfranc injury in his final collegiate game) which has kept him from making a significant impact on the Saints' defensive line. Loewen failed to record a tackle in two regular season appearances in 2017, although he did record 1.5 sacks during the preseason.
