Saints rookie defensive end Marcus Davenport is expected to miss about a month due to a toe injury, according to reports.
#Saints rookie pass-rusher Marcus Davenport is expected to miss about a month with a toe injury, I’m told. After that, they’ll judge how it has responded. He’s in a boot now. Bad timing, as the first-rounder was really coming on.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 31, 2018
He racked up two sacks on Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins last Sunday. Shortly after his second sack it was reported by sideline reporter, Steve Gellar, that Davenport was taken into the tent for a foot injury. He did play the entire game and may have aggravated the injury on his last play of the game.
So, who knows … He also went down oddly on the last play of the game. What we do know is he’s hurt, it happened Sunday and he’s in a boot. https://t.co/AymTIRNsrX— Nick Underhill (@nick_underhill) October 31, 2018
Davenport would leave for the trip home with a walking boot on and has worn one all week. It was originally done as a precautionary step. The Saints did not believe it was of any special concern but it’s reported that Davenport had several test run this morning. It’s now reported the first round pick could miss at least a month. The Saints are expected to make a determination after that. It is a bad time for the injury bug to rear it’s head. The Saints face the undefeated Rams on Sunday afternoon. Hopefully all goes well and he returns sooner rather than later.
In other “Strange News” CB P.J. Williams has been named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week. Williams did have a forced fumble and a pick six. We just won’t discuss the seven blow coverages.
