Ruiz (ankle) looks on track to make his season debut in Monday's matchup with the Raiders.
Ruiz was unable to play in the Saints' season-opening victory over the Bucs. Barring any setbacks, look for him to take on his usual workload at right guard.
Ruiz (anke) was ruled out for the team's Week 1 matchup against the Buccaneers.
Ruiz was unable to get any practice reps in throughout the week, leaving it as little surprise that he's been ruled out. He had lined up at both right guard and center during training camp, so the Saints will be without a versatile offensive lineman. Nick Easton will take over the starting right guard duties in Ruiz's absence.
Ruiz has lined up at center and right guard through his first eight practices and looked good at both positions, John DeShazier of neworleanssaints.com reports.
Ruiz is fully expected to be a starter on the Saints' offensive line in 2020, but it's unclear which position he'll play. He and Erik McCoy (New Orleans' 2019 second-round pick) have rotated at guard and center while the coaching staff decides which lineup combination works best.
