Saints' Alex Okafor: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okafor (knee) returned to practicing in pads Wednesday, Joel A. Erickson of The New Orleans Advocate reports.

Okafor's appearance in pads hints that he'll be ready for the season opener. Okafor figures to split time with rookie Marcus Davenport at the right defensive end spot.

Saints' Alex Okafor: Dealing with minor ankle and knee issues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Updating a prior report from Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Okafor has actually suffered a bone bruise in the knee and an ankle sprain, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

It was initially believed that Okafor had suffered a major injury but, while a bone bruise and an ankle sprain could take some time to heal, he's gotten off relatively easy as far as injuries go. When healthy, Okafor is expected to serve as a key pass-rusher for the Saints in 2018.

Saints' Alex Okafor: Avoids major injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okafor (leg) suffered a bone bruise a sprained knee during practice Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

While the prognosis isn't necessarily great, it's much better than the extent initially feared. The team has yet to release an estimated timetable for return, but Okafor is expected to serve as a key contributor on the Saints' defensive line when healthy.

Saints' Alex Okafor: Goes down with leg injury at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okafor left Wednesday's practice with an apparent leg injury, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

While the extent of the injury is not yet known, the early prognosis is not great. Okafor was helped off the practice field by trainers and was spotted with a noticeable limp. We likely won't know Okafor's status until he undergoes medical examinations.

Saints' Alex Okafor: Healthy for start of training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coming off season-ending Achilles' surgery last November, Okafor (Achilles) has been a full participant to start training camp, reports Larry Holder of the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Prior to his Week 11 injury, Okafor amassed a career-high 43 tackles to go along with 4.5 sacks and two forced fumbles in 10 games.

Okafor re-signed with the Saints this offseason but it was uncertain whether he would be ready for training camp. Not only is Okafor playing, he looks to have the inside track for the starting defensive-end position opposite Cameron Jordan with touted rookie Marcus Davenport struggling through some early growing pains. Given the Saints' substantial investment in Davenport, the most likely scenario involves him and Okafor spitting playing time, but the veteran could grab the lion's share of snaps if he recaptures his pre-injury form.
