The injury to Roman Harper is a new one and its significant. Don't remember seeing him get injured vs. DET. Harper is key to #Saints run D.— Jeff Duncan (@JeffDuncan_) January 11, 2012
The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports that Saints SS Roman Harper is dealing with a "significant" ankle injury. It sounds like a possible high ankle sprain. Harper must have suffered the injury late in last Saturday's win over the Lions. It's "a new one," reports beat writer Jeff Duncan, "and it's significant." Harper is one of the league's better in-the-box, run-support safeties, so his absence would be major against San Francisco's run-first offense in the Divisional round.
