The New Orleans Saints are coming off a 24-17 win against the Chicago Bears. Unfortunately, the Saints lost two rookies this week due to injury in this game. Let’s take a look at the state of the Saints rookie class.
The Saints third-round NFL Draft selection was injured on Sunday after catching a 31-yard pass. Miller was able to show why he’s so talented in this play, but he just can’t seem to stay healthy. Miller suffered an ankle sprain and will undergo an MRI, per Nick Underhill.

The Notre Dame product suffered a low-grade quad strain this past week, per Jeremy Fowler. It’s very unlikely that he will play this week.
The team’s first-round selection had a good game this past Sunday. He recorded two tackles and a key pass deflection for the Saints. That was his fifth pass deflection of the season. This is tied for second place amongst defensive linemen.
Perry saw a career-high 16 snaps. Eight of these were passes, and eight of them were run-blocking snaps. He has yet to record a catch this season.
The rookie kicker continues to struggle. Grupe was able to nail a career-long 55-yard field goal. However, he missed a crucial 47-yard field goal.
The former Minnesota Gopher only played one snap against the Bears.
