Marcus Davenport had MRI on pectoral injury


The Saints had a very good day on the field against the Packers in Week One, but a couple of their defensive starters were unable to make it through the game unscathed.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that defensive end Marcus Davenport had an MRI after suffering a pectoral injury. He is waiting for the results of the test and any further plans will be made once those results are in.

Cornerback Marshon Lattimore joins Davenport on the injured list as he is having surgery on his thumb after hurting it in the 38-3 win.

Davenport played 26 snaps on Sunday and finished the game with three tackles, a sack, and two tackles for loss.

  1. He will miss time, how much remains to be seen. That decision to go DE in the first round of the draft with Payton Turner may pay dividends sooner than expected. Wishing the best to Davenport and a speedy recovery though. Its a shame because he played a great game yesterday.

  2. Finally starting to look like who he was hoped to be when he was traded up for years ago but looks like injury will be the performance holdback this time (again). Hope injury is minor,otherwise needs to be his last season as a saint.
