Saints fear torn pectoral for Parys Haralson

The loss of cornerback Keenan Lewis to a possible concussion drew the most attention on Saturday night, but it wasn’t the only injury they suffered on defense.

Linebacker Parys Haralson exited the game in the first half with a chest injury and they may not be getting him back before the end of their playoff run. Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reports that the Saints think Haralson tore his pectoral muscle.

More tests will be done, but if that diagnosis holds it is likely that we’ve seen the last of Haralson for this season. Haralson, acquired in a trade with San Francisco, started eight games at outside linebacker for the Saints this season and recorded 30 tackles and 3.5 sacks.

Keyunta Dawson was inactive for the Saints on Saturday, leaving Will Herring to take over for Haralson for the rest of the game.

    No such thing as Karma. Injuries happen. Ask the chiefs.

    If only the Saints and Seahawks could both lose next week.

    “Karma for bountygate” would be Goodell getting caught running underground fights with former NFL players. The only one who deserves a karmic comeuppance is the guy who railroaded a shoddy investigation where he refused to produce any evidence for his claims (and what evidence he did produce was immediately disproven), because he needed to make a big PR stand to help his case in the concussion lawsuit.

    You realize he was a 49er when all that happened. I hate the saints as much as the next guy but I do it for the right reasons.
