Turner suffered a toe injury in the 2023 season opener against the Tennessee Titans that landed him on injured reserve. Turner was selected by the Saints in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft out of Houston. He has played in 13 games, making 29 tackles (20 solo), three sacks and one blocked field goal.

Sewell suffered an ACL injury last week against the Buccaneers, that will require surgery.
