Saints expected to have Terron Armstead back on Sunday, report says

Terron Armstead could play and make his 2017 debut against the Lions, according to a report.

The New Orleans Saints might get a big boost to their offensive line on Sunday when they take on the Detroit Lions. According to a report by NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport while everyone was likely sleeping, offensive tackle Terron Armstead is expected to play.

Armstead got hurt, tearing his labrum, in minicamp in mid-June during a non-contact drill. It was disappointing and obviously frustrating, but the progress has been good for the veteran left tackle. He started practicing during Week 4 against the Dolphins, in a limited capacity, and was also limited participant during practice this week.

The big question and hope is that the Saints aren’t rushing Armstead back to action. Andrus Peat is already questionable entering Week 6 with a hip injury, and the team re-signed Bryce Harris as potential last resort option should Armstead and Peat both be out of action.

Stay tuned on this, as the official inactive list will drop in less than three hours.
