Strief (knee) will not return off injured reserve this season after having surgery to repair his ACL and MCL, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports.
Strief was placed on injured reserve in early October with the hopes of returning by avoiding surgery, but that ended up not being possible. Now facing a recovery from a torn ACL and MCL at age 34, Strief's NFL future is certainly in doubt.
Strief (knee) said he hopes to avoid surgery to address a sprained MCL and thinks he'll be able to return from injured reserve at some point in December, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports.
Strief, the Saints' starting right tackle, injured his knee in Week 4 and has since been replaced by rookie first-round pick Ryan Ramczyk. It's likely that Ramczyk will be the team's long-term answer at that position, but Strief, an 11-year veteran, is still optimistic about returning to the field in what could be the final season of his career. The Saints will monitor his progress in the weeks to come before discerning whether or not a return from IR is feasible before the year is out.
Strief (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN.com reports.
Strief ended up on the IR after suffering a knee injury in Sunday's win over the Dolphins. It's a big blow for the Saints, but offensive line coach Dan Roushar noted that the veteran could be a candidate to return later in the year. Until then, expect Bryce Harris to take over as the starting right tackle.
Strief left Sunday's game against the Dolphins with a knee injury and is questionable to return, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Strief has been struggling with a knee injury all season, and this was the first game he's suited up. It's unclear if this is the same knee, so stay tuned for updates.
Strief (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
With Strief active for the first time since since Week 1, Ryan Ramczyk figures to shift back over from right tackle to left tackle Sunday, in order to fill in for Terron Armstead.
