Saints News, 10/4/16: Nick Fairley Makes an Impact in the First Quarter of the Season

New, comments

With Sheldon Rankins out with a broken fibula until at least Week Eight, the Saints knew that DT Nick Fairley would have to make more of an impact than expected early. The veteran has done just that recording three sacks from the interior line in the first quarter of the season, and playing a key role in the Saints' win over the Chargers Sunday.
