Peat (quadriceps) is questionable for Sunday's regular season opener against the Buccaneers, Josh Katzenstein of NOLA.com reports.
Peat still appears to be day-to-day with his injured quad, a designation that may carry forth until Sunday. If Peat ends up sitting out Sunday, Josh LeRibeus is in line to get the start for the Saints at left guard.
Peat (lower leg) was a limited participant in camp Thursday, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports.
Peat was able to practice on the first day of the Saints' training camp, but has not participated in team drills. The 2015 first-rounder suffered a broken fibula and high-ankle sprain in January during New Orlean's playoff victory over the Panthers. Peat was expected to be fully healthy for training camp, but Saints do not seem worried about the 24-year-old's recovery progress.
Peat (lower leg) is expected to be healthy for training camp, John Katzenstein of The Times-Picayne reports. "It's getting better," Peat said. "I'm taking it day by day, and my goal is to be back for training camp, so that's kind of what they set for me and I feel like I'm on schedule."
Peat suffered a broken fibula in January's playoff victory over the Panthers and couldn't walk for eight weeks after undergoing surgery. Look for more updates to come once training camp kicks off at the end of July.
Peat was one of New Orleans' first-round selections in the 2015 draft. His career didn't get off to a fast start, but the Stanford product has developed into one of the better guards in the game and he'll now be under Saints control through 2019. While it isn't clear where he stands in his recovery from the broken fibula he suffered in the team's wild-card victory over the Panthers this past January, the Saints' decision to pick up his fifth-year option shows the team isn't overly worried about his recovery process.
Although Peat is headed to injured reserve, per Rapoport, it's a fortunate development that his injury is less severe than originally thought. In fact, the offensive lineman is believed to be able to fully recover from the damage. However, it's not clear when he could be back on the field again.
