Stupar tore his ACL last October, ending his season prematurely. Now healthy and able to practice fully, he'll look to solidify his role on the defense and be a significant contributor behind starting linebackers Craig Robertson, Demario Davis, and A.J. Klein.
Stupar (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Nick Underhill of The New Orleans Advocate reports.
Stupar tore his ACL in Sunday's win over the Lions and his season officially is over. The linebacker played exclusively on special teams in his four games with the Saints, recording one tackle in four games.
Stupar (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Patriots.
Stupar was a limited participant in practice throughout the week, but he'll ultimately be able to suit up and play through the hamstring issue. Starting outside linebacker Stephone Anthony (ankle) has been ruled out, so Stupar could be in line for additional snaps if Hau'oli Kikaha were to suffer an injury of his own as well.
Stupar (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Nick Underhill of the New Orleans Advocate reports.
Stupar practicing on a limited basis this week is still an improvement after not practicing last week, but his status for Sunday remains unclear. The 29-year-old is likely nothing more than a depth linebacker for the Saints at this point.
