Saints bringing Captain Munnerlyn in for a vist

The Saints continue to kick the tires on veteran cornerbacks, with the latest a guy they’re familiar with. According to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, the Saints are bringing former Panthers cornerback Captain Munnerlyn in for a visit. Munnerlyn was in camp with the Bills this summer. The Saints are running short at cornerback at [more]

The MVP race remains wide open

Not long ago, the candidates for the 2019 NFL MVP award consisted of Patrick Mahomes, Patrick Mahomes, Patrick Mahomes, and Russell Wilson. Now, Mahomes’ injury could make his own chance at winning the award a much more difficult proposition. So with seven weeks in the bag, let’s look at the candidates as of right now. [more]

Saints working out cornerback Kayvon Webster

The Saints may have lost a cornerback late in last night’s win over the Bears, so they’re already looking at potential replacements. Via Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Saints are bringing in veteran cornerback Kayvon Webster for a visit today. Webster was in camp with them this summer, so he’s at least a known [more]

Mitchell Trubisky: We’re just searching offensively

The Bears had quarterback Mitchell Trubisky back in the lineup on Sunday, but his return from a left shoulder injury didn’t result in an offensive spark against the Saints. New Orleans won 36-25 and that’s a bit deceiving as the Bears had just 10 points and 120 offensive yards when there were just over four [more]

Drew Brees planning to practice this week

The Saints moved to 6-1 with Sunday’s 36-25 win in Chicago and they have gotten the last five of those wins without quarterback Drew Brees in the lineup. That record is a testament to how well Bridgewater has done in Brees’s absence. That absence appears to be nearing its end, however. Brees’s recovery from a [more]

Saints stomp Bears, move to 5-0 with Bridgewater

No Drew Brees? No problem. That would have sounded crazy to say about the Saints when Brees suffered the thumb injury that knocked him out for much of this season, but the Saints dominated the Bears 36-25 today and improved to 5-0 in games Teddy Bridgewater has started this season. Bridgewater completed 23 of 38 [more]

Chiefs plan to stand pat at quarterback, for now

It’s Sunday Splash! time, and anyone and everyone who covers the NFL is trying to produce a Triple Lindy regarding Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes. The better approach is to focus on the facts. And here they are, as of right now. The Chiefs currently are expected to stand pat at quarterback, making Matt Moore the [more]

Mitchell Trubisky set to play on Sunday

The Bears played without quarterback Mitchell Trubisky in their Week Five loss to the Raiders, but it appears that week off and a bye in Week Six were all the time off his injured left shoulder needed. Trubisky was listed as questionable after full participation in all three of the team’s practices this week and [more]

Week Seven injury report roundup

Week Seven of the 2019 NFL season kicked off on Thursday with a win by the Chiefs and it continues with 12 more games on Sunday, which means that the 24 teams in those games submitted their final injury reports of the week on Friday. The teams playing on Monday night won’t release their final [more]

Alvin Kamara ruled out for Sunday

The Saints won’t have running back Alvin Kamara in the lineup against the Bears on Sunday. Kamara is dealing with an ankle injury and there was reason to be pessimistic about his chances of playing after he missed all three of the team’s practices this week. He didn’t look his best against the Jaguars last [more]

Mitchell Trubisky listed as questionable to face Saints

Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky got in another full practice session on Friday, but the Bears aren’t ready to say he’ll be back in the starting lineup against the Saints. Trubisky sat out the team’s Week Five loss to the Raiders with a left shoulder injury and said this week that he would wear a harness [more]

Two first-round picks and a fourth-round pick are an offer that’s hard to refuse

It’s easy to say that a player won’t be traded. It’s much harder to say “no” to a major trade offer. The Jaguars repeatedly said they won’t trade cornerback Jalen Ramsey, and they tried continuously to unruffle his feathers when it was clear that he wanted to be traded. The resisted. They waited. And they [more]

Chuck Pagano calls Raiders loss “wake up call” for Bears defense

Over the first four weeks of the 2019 season, the play of the Bears offense generated a lot more questions than the play of the defense but the latter unit’s last outing caused a little more scrutiny on that side of the ball. They gave up 169 rushing yards to the Raiders after allowing an [more]

Alvin Kamara, Jared Cook miss Thursday’s practice

The Saints will be facing one of the best defenses in the NFL on Sunday. And they’ll possibly be missing three of their best offensive players. Already, quarterback Drew Brees is out as he continues to recover from a thumb injury. Running back Alvin Kamara and/or tight end Jared Cook also may be out. Kamara [more]

Drew Brees back to working with NFL ball in thumb rehab

Saints quarterback Drew Brees offered an update on his recovery on Wednesday and it included word that he’s back to working with a regulation-sized football. Video of Brees throwing a football surfaced earlier this month, but the ball was smaller than the one used in NFL games. During an appearance on WWL Radio, Brees shared [more]
