James Laurinaitis: Released by Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Laurinaitis (quadriceps) was released by the Saints on Thursday, Adam Schefter of reports.

The move was expected as the Saints told the linebacker of their intentions to release him earlier in the week. Laurinaitis was placed on injured reserve about two weeks ago, but will now get a chance to sign on with a different team. In just five games with the Saints, he logged 17 tackles (nine solo) and one pass deflection. If Laurinaitis can prove he is healthy, the veteran could be a major boost for a team looking to strengthen their linebacking corp.

Laurinaitis was placed on injured reserve a week and half ago after dealing with a reoccurring quadriceps ailment throughout the season.

Saints' James Laurinaitis: Headed to injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Laurinaitis (quadriceps) has been placed on the injured reserve, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Laurinaitis has been dealing with a quadriceps injury since late September, and clearly it is fairly significant, as the IR designation will end the linebacker's season. Michael Mauti will assume middle linebacker duties for the Saints, but the New Orleans run defense takes a big hit losing a player with the caliber of Laurinaitis.
