Parry (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Herbie Teope of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Parry suffered the injury in the Saints' Week 3 win over the Panthers, playing just three snaps in his season debut before departing. Since Parry wasn't a key part of the defensive-line rotation and was staring at a multi-week absence, the Saints decided it was optimal to free up a roster spot rather than waiting for the third-year player to heal up.
Parry returned to practice Friday after missing the previous two workouts with a groin injury, the Indianapolis Star reports.
Parry is in the midst of a tough battle with Johnathan Hankins and Al Woods for the starting nose tackle position. It is believed that Grover Stewart has capability as a tackle as well, so Parry will need to stay healthy during the preseason.
Parry (undisclosed) has missed the past two practices, Stephen Holder of The Indianapolis Star reports.
Parry is in the midst of a tough battle with Johnathan Hankins and Al Woods for the starting nose tackle position. It is believed that Grover Stewart has capability as a tackle as well, so unless Parry is able to get healthy and prove himself in a preseason contest, it'll be a stretch to make the team.
Parry (pectoral) got time as the starting nose tackle in Tuesday's OTAs, the team's official web site reports.
Parry strained a pectoral muscle late last season, but it doesn't look like a worry for the 2017 season. However, Parry may face a suspension under the NFL's personal conduct policy after he was charged with driving under the influence, criminal damage, auto theft, suspicion of robbery and resisting arrest in an incident in February in Scottsdale, Arizona. Parry pled guilty to one count of attempted unlawful means of transportation and one count of disorderly conduct. He still faces a DUI charge.
