The Saints have Adam Trautman at the top of the depth chart at tight end. They will hope he stays there after a brief appearance in Monday night’s preseason game against the Jaguars resulted in an unceremonious exit.

Trautman was carted off in the first quarter with what appeared to be a lower-leg injury.

Trautman played 15 games with six starts last season after the Saints drafted him in the third round. He made 15 catches for 171 yards and a touchdown.

In Sean Payton’s tenure in New Orleans, the Saints have the sixth-most receiving yards by tight ends in the NFL and the fourth-most receiving touchdowns by tight ends.

Ethan Wolf and Nick Vannett are playing the position now with Trautman in the training room.

Cornerback Brian Poole left limping after a first quarter punt and was being examined in the blue medical tent.

  1. Hoping not, but if it turns out to be a significant injury, perhaps Juwan Johnson can be another hidden gem udfa Peyton is known for finding. He has been a surprise and done well with both blocking and receiving so far this preseason.

  2. Preseason games bring out wannabes trying too hard to impress, and people get hurt unnecessarily. It’s like having eleven Anthony Barr’s all trying to be relevant at the same time.

    It’s been how many years ago now since the legal hit was delivered.
    Get over it.
