Saints News, 10/19/15: Rookie Andrus Peat Sprains Knee; Out a Few Weeks

New, comments

From WWLTV.com: New Orleans Saints rookie tackle Andrus Peat has an MCL sprain and will miss a few weeks, a league source told WWL-TV Sports Director Doug Mouton. Already without starting left tackle Terron Armstead, the Saints were ultimately forced to insert journeyman tackle Tony Hills, when Peat exited. Hills, who was signed nine days ago, has played in just 15-games for 10 teams over his 8-year NFL career. Although Armstead was inactive against Atlanta, he was a limited participant in practice this week and is expected back soon.
