Saints' Kiko Alonso: Agrees to deal with Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alonso agreed to terms on a restructured deal with the Saints on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Alonso's new deal will keep him in New Orleans for less than the $7.8 million he was originally slated to make in 2020. He'll likely assume a starting inside linebacker role alongside A.J. Klein. Alonso is coming off a torn ACL suffered in last season's playoffs but has made good progress in his recovery so far and could be ready by the start of the season.

Saints' Kiko Alonso: Making progress in rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alonso has been "making great strides in just a few short weeks" after tearing the ACL in his right knee, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Alonso sustained this injury in the wild-card round against the Vikings on Jan. 5, and the team is already impressed with his progress. The 29-year-old has a chance to be ready by Week 1, but that will be cutting it close. Alonso has one year remaining on his contract and could battle for a starting role in 2020.

Saints' Kiko Alonso: Tears ACL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alonso suffered a torn ACL in Sunday's playoff loss to the Vikings, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Per the report, that's the linebacker's third ACL injury. Alonso, who recorded 31 tackles in 13 games for the Saints this past season, should be ready to start the 2020 campaign, but at this stage he's not the IDP factor he was earlier in his career.

Saints' Kiko Alonso: Won't return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alonso (knee) is ruled out to return to Sunday's wild-card playoff contest against the Vikings, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

The severity of Alonso's injury remains undisclosed, but he'll be forced to miss at least the remainder of Sunday's playoff tilt. Craig Robertson stands to fill in at middle linebacker in his stead.

Saints' Kiko Alonso: Exits with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alonso was forced out of Sunday's wild-card playoff game versus the Vikings with a knee injury, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Alonso's absence is a major hit to the Saints' run defense against Dalvin Cook, and with Manti Te'o (coach's decision) inactive, Craig Robertson is expected to fill in for the time being. The 29-year-old linebacker made two tackles (one solo) before departing.

Saints' Kiko Alonso: Ready to roll
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alonso (quadriceps) doesn't carry an injury designation for Week 17's game against Carolina, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Despite logging limited practice time throughout the week, Alonso has shaken the injury in time for the season finale. The veteran is expected to handle his usual starting role as the team's middle linebacker for Week 17.

Saints' Kiko Alonso: Ruled out for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alonso (quadriceps) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Titans, Mike Triplett of reports.

Alonso got two limited practice sessions in this week before sitting out Friday. He'll miss his third game in a row as a result and will continue to be replaced by Craig Robertson.

Saints' Kiko Alonso: Practices as limited participant
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alonso (quadriceps) was a limited practice participant Wednesday.

Alonso didn't practice at all last week before being ruled out for Monday's win over the Colts, so his limited participation Wednesday is a step in the right direction. The 29-year-old should return to his rotational role in the linebacking corps if he can return to action Week 16.

Saints' Kiko Alonso: Unable to play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alonso (thigh) is ruled out for Monday's game against the Colts, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

Alonso wasn't able to participate in practice this week, so he'll miss a second straight game. Craig Robertson started at middle linebacker in Alonso's place last week, registering eight tackles and an interception, and he figures to resume that role against the Colts.

Saints' Kiko Alonso: Still not at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alonso (thigh) missed Thursday's practice, Mike Triplett of reports.

Alonso missed all of the practices prior to Week 14, and the trend continued Thursday. The Saints have two practices remaining this week, but if the 29-year-old doesn't get out there in at least a limited fashion, A.J. Klein (knee) or Craig Robertson would likely see increased snaps Monday night.

Saints' Kiko Alonso: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alonso (thigh) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against San Francisco, Mike Triplett of reports.

Alonso picked up the thigh injury during the win over the Falcons on Thanksgiving Day and was unable to practice this week. Craig Robertson and Stephone Anthony should see increased work Sunday with A.J. Klein (knee) also sidelined.

Saints' Kiko Alonso: Absent from practice again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alonso (thigh) did not participate in practice Thursday.

Alonso has failed to participate in either of the team's practices this week, seemingly putting his status in jeopardy for the Week 14 matchup against the 49ers. If he is unable to go, the recently signed Manti Te'o is likely to draw primary duties at middle linebacker.

Saints' Kiko Alonso: No practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alonso (thigh) didn't practice Wednesday, Katherine Terrell of The Athletic reports.

It was just a walkthrough, but it's discouraging that Alonso was unable to participate. To prepare for the possibility Alonso can't play Sunday against the 49ers, the Saints signed Manti Te'o. Thursday and Friday's sessions will provide more information about Alonso's game-time status.

Saints' Kiko Alonso: Considered day-to-day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alonso is considered day-to-day after leaving last Thursday's game with a thigh injury, Katherine Terrell of The Athletic reports.

Alonso's status for this week's game against the 49ers remains up in the air, but more should be known on his potential availability when the Saints resume practice Wednesday. Manti Te'o signed to bolster the team's linebacker depth, in the meantime.

Saints' Kiko Alonso: Picks up thigh injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alonso left Thursday's game with a thigh injury and is listed as questionable to return, Jeff Duncan of The Athletic reports.

Alonso left the game early, but considering the Saints were well ahead by the time the injury occurred, the questionable designation likely doesn't yield much information in regards to the severity of the injury.

Saints' Kiko Alonso: Playing rotational role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alonso played 41 percent of snaps on defense during Sunday's 31-9 win over the Cardinals.

Alonso didn't record a tackle during the Week 8 win, but he does appear to have carved out a rotational role in New Orleans' linebacker corps. Against the Bears in Week 7, Alonso played a season-high 60 percent of snaps on defense. Until such time as the 29-year-old carves out a more consistent role, however, he won't warrant consideration in IDP formats.

Saints' Kiko Alonso: Small defensive role in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alonso played only four snaps on defense (six percent) during Sunday's 27-9 loss to the Rams.

Alonso notched one solo tackle despite his minimal role and played two snaps on special teams. The veteran linebacker was dealing with an undisclosed injury when New Orleans acquired him from Miami on Sept. 1, and he still appears to be getting up to speed with the new defensive scheme. Alonso may not manage to carve out a starting role in the Saints' defense, but he could conceivably see increased usage as the season progresses.

Saints' Kiko Alonso: Ready to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alonso (undisclosed) is not listed on Thursday's injury report, Luke Johnson of USA Today reports.

Alonso was dealing with an undisclosed injury when the Saints acquired him from the Dolphins on Sept. 1, and he now looks back to full health. The 29-year-old started in Miami each of the last three years, racking up at least 114 tackles every season, but it remains to be seen what sort of role he'll play in New Orleans. He looks on track for Monday's tilt against the Texans.

Saints' Kiko Alonso: Traded to New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dolphins are trading Alonso (undisclosed) to the Saints, Tom Pelissero of reports.

Alonso is the latest veteran to be sent out of Miami, now joining a Saints defense that has Demario Davis (weak side), Alex Anzalone (middle) and A.J. Klein (strong side) listed as the starting linebackers. The 29-year-old Alonso had at least 15 starts and 114 tackles in each of his three seasons with the Dolphins, but he hasn't received strong grades from Pro Football Focus since his rookie 2013 campaign in Buffalo, plagued by frequent missed tackles and poor coverage stats. He's also been dealing with an undisclosed injury in recent weeks, so there's no guarantee he has a significant role with the Saints early in the regular season. Alonso may eventually challenge Anzalone or Klein for snaps.

Dolphins' Kiko Alonso: No guarantees for roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Brian Flores said Alonso (undisclosed) "need[s] to focus on today" when asked about his potential roster spot, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Alonso had been considered a trade candidate throughout the preseason, and his lingering undisclosed injury is likely only complicating the matter. The veteran linebacker is unlikely to be released, as the move would carry $8.2 million in dead money. However, if he's traded, that amount would drop to a more manageable $1.3 million. Alonso has averaged 118 tackles over the last three seasons in Miami and has missed only two games.
