Dural was released by the Saints on Thursday, Sean Fazende of FOX 8 NOLA reports.
Dural spent the 2017 and 2018 offseasons with New Orleans but never appeared in a regular-season game, most recently because an arm injury landed Dural on injured reserve for the entire 2018 campaign. He's now being let go to clear room for the addition of veteran wideout Rishard Matthews. The 25-year-old LSU product will look to latch on elsewhere in advance of training camp.
The Saints placed Dural (arm) on injured reserve Tuesday, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Dural was unable to land a spot on any team's 53-man roster during his rookie season before ultimately signing a reserve/future contract with the Saints. His training camp got off to an unfortunate start Sunday, as the 24-year-old pass catcher suffered a broken humerus in practice. As a result, the team was forced to place him on the IR where he will remain for the rest of the season unless both parties reach an injury settlement.
Dural suffered a broken humerus in Sunday's practice and will undergo surgery, Nick Underhill of The Baton Rouge Advocate reports.
Dural, who signed a reserve/contract with the Saints back in January, will be fighting for a spot on the final roster for the second straight season after he was cut last September. With surgery now a necessity for Dural, he'll likely miss a good portion of training camp, which will be a major hit to his chances of making the final cut this fall.
Dural signed a reserve/future contract with the Saints on Tuesday, Herbie Teope of The Times-Picayune reports.
Dural spent the season on the Saints' practice squad but will now get an opportunity to showcase his abilities this offseason in hopes of landing a spot on the active roster in 2018.
Dural was released by the Saints on Saturday, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Dural shined in the Saints' final preseason game Thursday with four catches for 56 yards, but didn't appear in the previous three contests. The 23-year-old was dealing with a shoulder injury in July after going undrafted out of LSU in April.
Dural (shoulder) passed his pre-training-camp conditioning test and isn't expected to be limited when the Saints begin practicing, Nick Underhill of The New Orleans Advocate reports.
Dural's shoulder issue was only considered a minor concern, so the Saints will presumably activate the wideout from their Non-Football Injury list before camp gets underway. An undrafted rookie out of LSU, Dural faces long odds to earn a spot on the Saints' 53-man roster.
Dural (shoulder) is expected to be healthy and ready to take the field for the start of training camp, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Dural was placed on the Non-Football Injury list last Wednesday, but it seems that was only for precautionary purposes. The undrafted rookie is competing for a reserve role at receiver, but is a long shot to earn a roster spot.
Dural (undisclosed) was placed on the Saints' non-football injury list Wednesday.
Dural, who signed with New Orleans in May after going undrafted out of LSU, will still count against the Saints' 90-man roster while on this list. It isn't clear how he was injured or what sort of injury he's dealing with, so it's completely unknown when he'll be healthy again.
