Saints' Alex Okafor: Brings down quarterback in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okafor posted two solo tackles and a sack during Sunday's 48-7 win against the Eagles.

Saints' Alex Okafor: Half sack in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okafor recorded three tackles (two solo) and 0.5 sacks across 38 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Bengals.

Through nine games, Okafor has 13 tackles and 1.5 sacks. Those numbers are down from last season but it should be noted that the veteran is now competing with rookie Marcus Davenport (toe) for reps. Davenport (toe) will likely remain out for a few more weeks, which will lead to increased action for Okafor.

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.
