Saints' Coby Fleener: Sidelined once again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fleener has missed the past two days of practice due to an unknown reason, Herbie Teope of The Times-Picayune reports.

Fleener was held out with an undisclosed injury earlier this month, and although he took part in team drills to start this week, the tight end returned to the sideline once scrimmaging versus the Chargers began Thursday. While that casts doubt over his availability for Sunday's game versus Los Angeles, fellow tight end Josh Hill returned from an absence Thursday to practice fully Friday.

Saints' Max Unger: Passes physical
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Unger (foot) passed his physical examination Thursday.

Unger has been recovering from a Lisfranc injury he suffered from in Week 13 of last season, but with the passing of his physical, it looks as though the lineman will meet his goal of returning for the Saints' third preseason game.

Saints' Adrian Peterson: May not play in preseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson isn't sure if he will play in any preseason games, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

Peterson has been a full participant in training camp practices and has drawn rave reviews from his new teammates and coaches. In fact, the former Viking last saw preseason action in 2013, so there's little reason to fret his absence during the meaningless exhibition season. Although listed behind Mark Ingram on the running back depth chart, Peterson is expected to see his fair share of touches in the Saints' committee backfield.

Saints' Delvin Breaux: Out six weeks with fibula injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Breaux (leg) is expected to miss six weeks.

Recent reports suggested that Breaux would be sidelined anywhere from 4-6 weeks following his surgery, but it seems that six weeks is a more accurate depiction of his timeline. With that being said, it's unlikely he'll be 100 percent for the season opener, but Breaux could be back in time for Week 2 assuming he avoids any setbacks.

Saints' Cameron Jordan: Top performer at training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jordan has been one of the Saints' top performers at training camp, accruing sacks and batted passes at an impressive rate during drills, reports ESPN's Mike Triplett.

Jordan had only 7.5 sacks last season but he tied for the NFL lead last year with 17 tackles for loss and ranked in the top seven with 24 quarterback hits and five batted passes. In fact, the seven-year pro was rated as the third-best edge rusher in the league by Pro Football Focus. More importantly for fantasy leagues, Jordan is on the field for almost every snap, which is impressive for a big man. His 926 snaps last year ranked third among all NFL defensive linemen. Jordan often gets overlooked in fantasy leagues because he doesn't normally post gaudy sack totals but he consistently ranks near the top of the league in tackles for his position and has averaged more than nine sacks per season over the last five years. He should again be a quality option in IDP leagues.
